    Hi,

    Is there a way to add the custom fields information to each product using a csv file? A have a lot of products to uplaod and adding that information one by one in the dashboard is a lot of work.

    I added a test product with some custom fields and exported it as cvs files to see which fields i will have to fill in the file to upload the custom fields information at once, but it doesnt show the fields for the custom fields.

    How can i do it with the csv file?

    Thanks for the help

    Hi,

    Custom fields are product meta field, so you upload those using CSV. WC Product Importer support this.

    Thank You

    Hi,

    As i mentioned before i created a new product with the custom fields, and exported it as csv file to see all the fields to upload the information at once.

    I am trying filling the csv file with all the product information including the custom fields. I am using the column header as “meta: precio con envio” which is a field i created.

    But once i upload the csv file, the custom fields dont show in the product detail page. I have to do it manually one by one.

    These are the fields i have created:

    Group name: datos_adicionales
    Field name:
    -Precio_con_envio
    -Tiempo_de_entrega
    -Formas_de_pago
    -Garantía

    HI,

    Group name: datos_adicionales
    Field name:
    -Precio_con_envio
    -Tiempo_de_entrega
    -Formas_de_pago
    -Garantía

    – Do not create custom fields as Group. Keep as simple.

    It will be exported.

    Thank You

    Hi,

    I created the custom fields as simple as you suggested. I created one block that include all the custom fields, and i disabled “Fields as Group” checkbox.

    I was able to export the csv file with the meta column header but if i upload it, the custom fields still dont show in the detail product page. Please see image 1

    This is what i have:

    Block name: Datos Adicionales
    Fields as Group: Unchecked
    Fields:
    Precio_con_envio
    Tiempo_de_entrega
    Formas_de_pago
    Garantía

    Why is that?

    Thanks for the help!

    HI,

    Do you have added any value for this product’s custom fields?

    https://wclovers.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/image-1-2.jpg – First is Block name, what is second? Is this value of any of those 4 custom fields?

    Add this line to your child theme’s functions.php if you do not want to show “Block Name” here –

    add_filter( 'wcfm_is_allow_custom_field_block_name_display', '__return_false' );

    Thank you

    Hi!

    I have added values for 2 products. It shows in one product but not in the other one. I exported the csv file again and it seems like the custom fields have repeated themselfs. Please see the file attached and help me fix it.

    Now I have to check the “Fields as Group” box if i want the custom fields to show in the product “Proyector Samsung”, If it is not checked they dont show. Please see image 1

    This is how i have set it up:

    Block name: Datos Adicionales
    Fields as Group: Unchecked
    Fields:
    Precio_con_envio
    Tiempo_de_entrega
    Formas_de_pago
    Garantía
