Metafields are extra pieces of data that can be attached to Shopify products. You can also use Shopify Metafields to do more advanced or automated integration. For example, this approach will allow you to batch upload CSVs of data, or configure third-party Shopify management tools to configure your products to use with Verisart.
You can find our full list of metafields in our developer docs.
