Custom Fields Migration Service

If your source store has custom fields that need migrating, LitExtension experts can help you migrate those fields to the target site, accurately and effectively.

What is Custom Field?

Custom Fields are fields used to specify additional information about your products or pages. Custom fields can be created directly by modifying your database or through a plugin/module built by third-party developers. In our migration process, the definition of custom fields is slightly different.

They are:

  • Fields that are in the Source Store’s default database but are not in the Target Store’s.
  • Fields that are not in both Source Store’s and Target Store’s default database.
  • Fields that are custom in the Source Store but available in the Target Store.

Note: This option is only available for open-source eCommerce platforms.

How Our Experts Perform Migration From Your Custom Fields

Your custom fields will be performed by LitExtension experts. Our experts will make sure the data compatibility between your fields and the Target Store so that your data will be transferred accurately and seamlessly.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my store has custom fields or not?

Custom fields are the fields which originally do not exist in your platform core. They are created through a plugin or module built by the platform’s developers or other plugin providers. They can also be created by directly modifying your database. You use custom fields to specify additional information of your products or pages.

To check whether your store has custom fields, you can:

  • Ask the developer who built that website
  •  Contact Us and we will help you to check for free
How to import Custom Fields/Attributes to Shopify?

During the data migration to Shopify, all product sizes (length, width, height) and ean, as well as attributes, which are not included in variants creation, will be migrated in MetaFields by the default.

After migrating product attributes from your Source Store to Shopify, you’ll need to install a free Metafields Guru plugin to create, update and delete metafields for products (variants included), both smart and custom collections, customers, orders (draft orders included), blogs, pages and the shop directly from the admin panel of your Shopify store. Otherwise, metafields won’t be displayed and editable in the admin panel.

Follow the instructions below to understand how it works:

  1. Having installed Metafields Guru from Shopify App Store, open Apps from the left navigation menu of your admin panel and choose the plugin. Select the type of data you want to edit.
  2. Use the filter to find a particular product.
  3. Click on Metafields navigation tab, enter or edit wanted data. Once you’ve made all changes, don’t forget to save them by pressing on the Create Metafield button.
Can LitExtension migrate custom fields to Shopify?

Unfortunately, due to Shopify Shopping Cart peculiarities, custom fields cannot be transferred to this platform.

However, if you are planning to migrate custom fields on your Source Cart to another powerful platform which is not a hosted platform, watch this video to see how you can perform it with LitExtension accurately and effortlessly!

How can I enable Custom fields in WooCommerce?

LitExtension supports migration the custom fields to WooCommerce. However, WooCommerce doesn’t display Custom fields by default. To enable this option you have to:

  • go to “store/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/single-product/tabs”
  • find file “additional-information.php”
  • add the following code:

echo ‘<table class=”shop_attributes”><tbody>’;
foreach(get_post_meta($post->ID, $key, true) as $key => $attr) {
if(strpos($key, “_”) !== 0) {
echo ‘<th>’.$key.'</th>’;
echo ‘<td>’.array_shift($attr).'</td>’;
echo ‘</tr>’;
}
}
echo ‘</tbody></table>’;
