This option is available on Matching Column (Step 2) of Add, Update & Export feed. This field have extra setting. 

There are a few settings for this field which are:

1. Prefix

You can add the prefix in front of the tag values. 

2. Ignore Tags

Ignore tags is for listing out all the tags that you wanted to ignore from importing. You can use it by separating the comma. 

3. Tag column separator

You can add any column separator for the tag. It's a custom field to add the column separator.

4. Include tags

If you would like to include certain tags only. You can use this method. 

For example, you have product A with 20 tags and you want to include only one of them. You can include it here.

5. Find

Find multiple words or phrases, separated by a comma. Search will match any word to find any part of the word, including

For example, *man will find woman, manicure as well. The find field also supports regular expressions too. It will find the word from the feed file.

Another example, there is also a way to remove all links from the description field, the user needs to put as this *<a href=.?>,<a id=.?>,</a>*

6. Replace with

Replace with define as you can replace it with multiple words or phrases, separated by a comma. eg word1,word2. (Auto-matched with Find)

7. Replace store product tags (option 1)

When the toggle icon is unchecked, Stock Sync will not remove any existing tags on the store and only add new tags from the feed file.

8. Append new tags to existing tags (option 2)

It will be set to true by default. If not the tags will remove from the existing tags. If it's disabled, it will REMOVE from the existing tags. 

Differences between option 1 and option 2

What do these two options mean and how does it affect your update? 

Let's see with an example:

When your product in the Shopify store has tags (tag A, tag B) and the same product in the feed file has tags (tag B, tag C)

Replace store product tags

Append new tags to existing tags




tag A, tag B, tag C



tag A



tag B, tag C



tag B, tag C

If your feed file doesn't have any column as tags and you want to apply tags as newly_added for all your products. You can select the option as Static and enter the value newly_added in the field.
