Let’s imagine you are launching a new casual T-shirt collection on your own store. At the Custom Fields section you can, for instance, include information about product attributes as brand, design (for example super heroes, music bands, etc) any kind of information that won’t generate a product variant.
For example a t-shirt can have several sizes (variants) but not several brands (custom field).
Custom Fields are shown in a slightly different way in the product page, depending on the theme.
In Mega Theme will look like this:

Advanced Use of Custom Fields: They can be used in programming routines to accomplish extra functionalities. For example, you can add a select list custom field called “Regions” and then, develop some code to show an icon or a flag image on product page, depending on selected region. See example below. Learn how to use custom fields in snippets to develop advanced features.
To add a new custom field, go to Manage Custom Fields, then select from the list the type of custom field you want to create and add a label to it.
Once it is created, if is a Select List type custom field, add values to it:
If you have access to our Product Filters feature, you can set “Select List” product option type as a filter.
It is possible to associate variants with custom fields. If the Custom Field is of type “Input Field” or “Text Area” it will automatically be applied to all variants. However, if it is of type “Selection List” you can detail which variant has such custom (note that by default it will apply to all variants).
Since “Selection” custom fields can have multiple values, it is possible to add that custom field up to a maximum of n (n being the number of custom fields values’ options), where values’ options are only the available ones.
In the example below, when “Model” custom field is only added once, all 4 options are available. After adding the custom field a second time, since option “Mini” is already in use, only the other three are available.
