Once you install the Bulk Editor app for Shopify you're presented with a page where you can search for the products you want to edit. You can search for products by either:
- Typing text in the main search box and pressing Enter
- Clicking on the Filter Products button and adding a filter to your search
We've collected some tips on this page to help you be more effective with your edits.
Using the main search box
The quickest way to search for products is to just type in some text and press Enter. When you do this the Bulk Editor app will search for all products that contain that text in the product's:
- Product Type
If you want to limit the results you can always add additional filters with the Filter Products dropdown.
How to view a product's details from the search results
Sometimes you might see a product show up but you're not exactly sure which product it is (maybe you have several different products with the same title). If you want view the product's detail page just click on the thumbnail image on the left side of the search results. This will open up the detail page in a new window so you can see all the information about the product.
Search for products with no weight
If a product in Shopify does not have a weight set it will default to zero. You can find these products by using the Filter Products dropdown. Click on the dropdown and do a search for Weight = 0 that looks like this:

Find products with no tags
You can also use the Filter Products dropdown to identify products that have no tags. Simply choose the Tags option and then type in [EMPTY] for the tag name like this:
