      • Image - Click on ‘Change’ and upload the image you’d like to be shown on the product when this Custom tag is selected. It is recommended to use svg format, however, jpg, png and webp are also supported. Note that a 5x padding is added to any uploaded image, so it’s best to not use padding within the image itself.

How to add the Showroom Custom Tag on products

Add Product badges to a single product

  2. Click ‘Edit
  3. Click on the variant, to see the variant details
  4. Select the badge from the ‘Showroom Custom Tag’ dropdown menu
  5. Click 'Save'.

Add Product badges on multiple products through the Product import

  1. Start by performing a Product export to export specific products or the whole product catalog. You are targeting a variant specific field in this update, so you can set the ‘One row for every size’ to No, since sizes are not needed
  2. The Product import scenario found here, shows which columns are required as a minimum to update variant specific fields on a product. In the export file, use the column ‘Attributes - Showroom Custom Tag’ to update the attribute. Insert the name of the badge you would like to add to the variant
  3. Once your file is ready, save it in a .csv (UTF-8, comma separated) format
  4. Click on 'Products', then 'Import' and follow our Product import instructions
  5. Click 'Import'
  6. Review the crosscheck to make sure all rows looks correct and that the right product was mapped
