With our new ACF interface, all resources’ editors are displayed right next to “Configuration” tab

Step 1: At the “Custom Fields” tab, choose a resource you want to edit.

Step 2: According to the resource you pick, it will show a corresponding resource list. Pick an item and you will be taken to its page for creating/editing metafield(s).

You can use the search bar to search for items. Find out how to use search bar here

Step 3: On the item page, a list of field editors according to fields you created on the Configuration tab will show up.

  • For the item page’s header, please refer to Header function buttons.
  • A layout of field editors comprises 3 parts: header, body and sidebar. Sidebar is only for a group of fields.
  • A layout of field editors also consists of 2 types, field(s) and group(s) of fields

Step 4: Once you have finished creating/editing values for metafield(s), click “Save” to update corresponding metafield(s) on Shopify or “Clear” to call off all changes.


It will take 30 seconds for metafields to take effect on the storefront after successful save.


Use Ctrl + S (on Windows) or Cmd + S (on Mac) for a quick save
