Custom Attributes

Custom Attributes can be used in the Import Mapping. You can map these attributes to the corresponding Export System fields in case there are no default attributes matching the required property. You can also include Custom Attributes in Shortcuts and create specific rules and conditions for such fields.

There are two types of product attributes used in Sellbery Service - System and Custom.

System attributes are default hard-coded attributes that cannot be changed or removed. These are product fields common to all sales channels - basic fields without which a listing cannot exist. For example, Name, Description, Price, Quantity, Image, SKU, etc. System attributes may be mandatory or optional, but they are always on the list for each product.

Custom attributes are product or channel-specific fields created manually for some purpose. These attributes may describe an important unique feature of a certain product or a group of products in your store, as well as provide additional knowledge about your products that cannot be described by the means of default attributes.

There are two types of Custom Attributes on Sellbery - those imported from external channels and those created on Sellbery directly.

Custom Attributes are any attributes imported from External Channels and not mapped to any of the System attributes (Export Service Custom Attribute).
Custom Attributes can be created in a specific section of Sellbery Service and can be applied to any of the listings on Sellbery (Sellbery Custom Attribute).
