If the metafield you are trying to update is not created in your store, then Stock Sync will create the metafield but Adding snippets into Shopify Theme Liquid needs to be done manually.

If the feed file doesn't have any column as metafield and wants to apply the metafield as the default value for all the products. You can use fixed value to set it. 

When it comes to metafields, several options are available such as metafield 1, 2, 3, and so on. Additionally, a few settings are provided. 

Let's take a closer look at the explanation of these settings below.

1. Metafield Namespace and Key

The dropdown will display the list of metafields available in the store. It also displays the Owner and Content Type respectively.

How do i set the metafield content type true and false value ?

To know more about this can refer here.

To view the accurate format of metafield, please do open your feed file via notes or notepad so that can see it clearly. 

If open via excel, it could change some of the value formatting such as numbers and dates. 

For example, if you have a metafield like this:

1 day
2 days

The Namespace is the Estimated Time of Arrival, the Key is ETA, and the Value will be attached to the Product of the Variant according to the metafield owner.

For the metafield type, you should choose the correct data type. The data type also must be the same in Stock Sync and Shopify. 

If not, it will get an error. Can refer here to know more.

4. Default value if cell is blank

Default value if the cell is blank. If the feed has a blank cell for a product, then the default value will be added to the metafield value instead. The default value can't be left blank.
