How to Add Custom Fields to a BigCommerce Store

To add custom attributes to a BigCommerce product catalog, you have the four options listed below:

1. Use an Unused Field

Here are some unused field suggestions:

Other Details
Bin Picking Number, Warranty Information, Search Keywords
Accounting Settings
Asset Account Code, Income Account Code, Expense/COS Account Code
Peachtree Fields
General Ledger Account
Google Shopping
Color, Size, Material, Pattern

We can map any of the above fields to any attribute in your feed. For example:

Bigcommerce  => Google Feed Attribute
Color        => custom_label_0
Material     => custom_label_1
Pattern      => custom_label_2

2. BigCommerce Custom Attributes

If you want these available in your feed, please contact us and we can turn that on for you.

3. Google Sheets

You can set up a Google Sheet (public read-only, unlisted), and add product ID and custom attributes there. With a Custom feed, we can program your feed to incorporate data from the Google Sheet. Please contact us for more information.

4. Private Database

We can also provide you with a private database, where you can directly enter the data. The advantage of this is that the product IDs can be automatically maintained. Please contact us for more information.
