Is there a way to edit the descriptions on my storefront so that they do not get overwritten by the data on my data feed?

  • Go to your Channels page and select your Shopify account:

                              channel page

  • Once you have selected your Shopify account, in the upper right hand corner, select “Settings”:

settings

 

  • When that screen pops up, under “Fields” make sure “Description” is NOT checked. This will ensure they don’t change:

                         description

  • Select “Update” and you’re finished!

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • You will not get descriptions to new items added to the data feed from your supplier.
  • Also, if you ever turn the “description” back on, you will lose everything that you have done custom.
  • Do you want to write your own descriptions and also be able to create new items from the data feed. See my article on Creating SEO Descriptions
