Creating a Shopify Template in StoreAutomator

Welcome to our tutorial on creating a Shopify template in StoreAutomator. We  guide you through the process of setting up a Shopify template, from creating it to mapping fields for enriched Shopify listings.


Step 1: Accessing Template Settings

To begin, navigate to the left-hand menu and click on "Settings." From there, select "Templates" and click on "Add Template" in the top right corner to initiate the template creation process.


Step 2: Selecting Channels and Naming Your Template

In the template creation window, choose the desired channels and give your template a name. In this example, Matt selects Shopify as the channel and names the template accordingly, such as "Shopify." Click "Create" to generate the template.


Step 3: Editing the Template

While the template is created, it initially lacks data. Click on "Edit" to customize and map the fields. StoreAutomator automatically maps hard-coded fields such as SKU, title, description, price, images, and tags. These fields are consistent across all templates and require no manual mapping.


Step 4: Mapping Additional Fields

To enrich your Shopify listing, add extra fields by clicking "Add Field." For instance, Matt demonstrates how to map the "Product Vendor" field. Choose the target field in Shopify, then select the corresponding StoreAutomator field.


Step 5: Mapping Shopify's Metafields

Shopify's custom data feature, known as Metafields, allows further customization. Matt explains how to add a Shopify Metafield to the template. Copy the "namespace" and "key" from Shopify and paste it into StoreAutomator. For example, adding a "Candle Season" Metafield involves specifying the location in the product tree.


Step 6: Saving and Closing

Once all necessary fields are mapped, click "Save and Close" to finalize the Shopify template.


Congratulations! You've successfully created a Shopify template in StoreAutomator, enhancing your product listings for the Shopify channel.
