Field Mapping is done by customizing various fields dynamically on your WooCommerce platform for all your products. As a seller, you can now completely automate how your product data in your Discogs are mapped to your fields on WooCommerce for all your products. If you would like to customize products at an individual level, then you can do so in the product details page.

In this Tutorial, Let’s walk through on the various steps you will have to follow in order to setup field mapping. Also, Field Mapping is mandatory to be customized to your liking but if done, it comes with all the benefits listed above.

Navigation:

The WooCommerce Field Mapping section can be found under the “Mappings” section of the left panel.

How it works:

You will find various data fields of Discogs on the bottom of this section. These are dynamic shortcodes which can be used to map your Discogs data to your Shopify fields. You can map multiple Discogs Shortcodes (data fields) to a single field of WooCommerce. These Discogs Shortcodes can be copied with a click & they can be pasted in their respective target WooCommerce fields.

Please do note that in addition to the Shortcodes, you can also add texts to all the fields which will be mapped for every product. By default, our template has various Discogs fields & texts added. You’re

  • 1. WooCommerce Title:

The WooCommerce title has a character limit of 255. By default we’ve added.[Artist] – [Title] ([Format]) ([Media condition])

  • 2. SKU:

The Stock Keeping Unit on WooCommerce. As it’s recommended to keep it unique, we’ve added [Listing ID] by default. You’re also free to use [Location], [Release ID] etc.Please be sure not to include any descriptive shortcodes like [Notes],[Comments],[TrackList] etc in shorter fields.

  • 3. Description

The Description field in WooCommerce can be customized unlike other fields with our editor. Meaning, you can modify the texts by making them bold, italic, underlined, etc. Or customize them with HTML, etc.This is the field where you can include your long descriptive shortcodes like [Notes],[Comments],etc. Also, the video shortcode

can be included as part of the description. The video shortcode can be customize more to your preferences by altering the value of X in the shortcode show=X. Where X denotes the number of videos you’d like to show from the respective Discogs listing. The dimensions of the video can also be customized in the shortcode as long as the aspect ratio is maintained.

As mentioned earlier, the Discogs  WooCommerce  Field mapping affects your entire range of products are are going to be synced from Discogs to  WooCommerce . Should you wish to change the mapping for a particularly product, you’re free to do so in the product details page of a particular product in the “Products” section on the left panel.
