What is the “Bulk edit products” feature in Shopify?

Shopify lets you set up an online or e-commerce store with great ease but it is a very powerful tool with various functions that you need to get to know very well before launching your store. 

Shopify has multiple features and functions that you can use in order to optimize your online store and make it the best. Some of these features might be great but some of them might require support from other Apps. 

Sometimes, there may be instances where you need to edit the same attribute in multiple products. Shopify provides a “Bulk edit” function that allows you to make changes to multiple products. You can also use this function to make edits to collections, stock, and even your clientele.

Limitations of Shopify’s Bulk Edit Feature

Although it is a great feature to have, it comes with its drawbacks including overwriting existing data, and reimporting entire product data instead of being able to change individual parameters. 

but the biggest one by far is being able to edit a maximum of 25 products at a time. This might work for a few, but for others with a larger store and array of products, it is a cumbersome task. 

Sometimes, you could come across a situation where, for example, you might need to add a disclaimer to all your products and it can be very tedious to do it a few products at a time. Many users have faced this issue and have tried to find a solution but to no avail.
