  • SKU

  • Availability

  • Price

  • “Compare at” price

  • Stock

  • Product quantity when the low stock notification is sent

  • Whether the product requires shipping or pickup

  • Weight

  • Dimensions (length, width, and height)

Note

You can update up to 100 products at a time using the Bulk Product Editor.

Edit Product Properties

Once you select products for editing and proceed to the Bulk Product Editor page, a table displays the products (as well as their variations). Products are table rows, and product properties are table columns.

Select the properties you want to edit in the Columns menu on the left to add the corresponding columns to the table and deselect the ones you do not need to make the table easier to manage. You can deselect all the columns except for the Name column.

To edit a property for a particular product/product variation:

  1. Click on the cell of this property in the row of the product/product variation.
  2. Make the necessary changes.
  3. Click Save.
    The products that you have edited will be marked by a dot until you save the changes.
Note

You can change the properties that are not yet available in the Bulk Product Editor when you edit products one by one on their product detail pages. Click Catalog, Products, and then click Edit Product.

Tips and Shortcuts

You can edit the cells that have a white background in the table. Cells with a gray background are not available for editing.

Click the column name to sort products based on this property.

By default, the Columns menu is expanded, but you can always collapse it by clicking the Columns button to have more space to edit your products.

To navigate the table, you can either click on the cell that you need with a cursor or use your keyboard:

  • Press Tab to select a cell and switch into keyboard navigation mode.

  • Use arrow keys (→, ←, ↑ or ↓) to move to the next/previous cell in the row/column (available after pressing Tab).

  • Press Enter to enter changes into the cell and move to the next cell in the column. You can also press Enter to start editing the selected cell.

  • Press Esc to discard the ongoing changes in the cell.

Instantly Update Product Accessibility

You can quickly enable, disable, or delete selected products without entering the Bulk Product Editor. For example, if you want to temporarily hide a seasonable category or you stop selling some product line forever and need to delete the items.

  2. Click Catalog to see the Products page.
