Listing specifications

Each marketplace needs to be tailored to its industry. Marketplaces must request vendors to add additional data to their products to boost their marketplace.

Here are some use cases:

  • automatically add products to a collection
  • display more product context to the end customer
  • use additional information in internal automation

Where are specifications used?

When creating a new product, vendors set the specifications in Garnet > Listings > Upload listing. Note that if you don't have any specification set, the section Specification is hidden.


Moreover, when uploading a CSV, all specifications will be available for mapping the data from the CSV to Garnet.

Internally, a specification is a Shopify metafield definition. It is accessible in the Shopify admin console, in Shopify collections, theme templates, and in the liquid code.

Add specifications

Specifications can be added and edited by the marketplace admin following Garnet > Admin panel > Specifications.


Specifications can be of different types:

Short textText of any size that fits on one lineArtist name, CPU, City
Long textText of any size that fits on several linesDelivery details, Cancellation policy
DecimalNumber with any number of decimalHeight (ft), Diameter (cm)
IntegerNumber without any decimalPublication year, mileage (mi)

Garnet supports more specification types and format for some businesses (like calendar booking, product suggestions and more), contact us to know more about it.

Edit or remove specifications

You can safely edit and remove specifications from Shopify. We provide a direct link in the Admin panel.

To delete the specification, scroll all the way down and select Delete fields and their saved values to completely remove the field and its data. Be careful, the data cannot be recovered once removed.
