Custom fields are a great way to collect additional information from your shoppers. If you need to know what size shirt or how to deliver an item, you can create custom fields for this information. Additionally, you can collect information about your Members. You may choose to create custom fields that you also want to save information in your contacts' profile data. Read below for how to define Custom Fields/Properties for your Products and Memberships.
Properties for Products and Memberships can be defined in 2 places.
