I have a list of SKUs and prices, how can I update them at one time?
You can upload a list of products to edit in either the CSV or Excel format and the Bulk Editor will update them all at once. To learn more, check out our article about editing products with a CSV or Excel upload.
What happens if I run two edits at once?
You can use the Bulk Editor to run multiple edits at the same time. Usually this will not cause of problem just keep in mind that there may be conflicts where two different edits try to edit the same field of a product at the same time.
Additionally, running multiple edits at the same time will cause each edit to run a little slower. This is because Shopify limits the number of requests per second that the Bulk Editor can make to your store.
Can I edit multiple fields at once?
You can use the spreadsheet edit function in the Bulk Editor to edit multiple fields at once. All you need is an identifying column (usually SKU), and columns for each of the fields you want to edit.
Why do the permissions needed for the app include access to customer and order data?
Shopify has a number different permissions related to orders, and the one that the app requests is the 'read_fulfillments' permission. This allows us to see the different fulfillment services that a store uses so that you can edit them through the app. Unfortunately, this can cause confusion because the message you are shown sounds as if the app needs access to customer data, but it can't actually see any orders or customer information from your store.
We try to develop our apps requesting the minimum permissions necessary (we don't want to be like those 'free' apps that want all your order data). If you have any other questions about permissions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I schedule an edit?
You can schedule an edit using both the in-app editor and the spreadsheet edit function.
