How to create a product description in the Shopify store automatically based on the data from your supplier feed.

Basic description settings

To pull a description from a specific node, simply indicate the node name from which you want Stockeo to extract a description. For example, if the text you want to use is included in the <description> node, enter its name in the Description field of your automation as follows:

The node data may contain HTML and CSS text formatting information. The description will be formatted according to these.

Create a description by splicing information from several nodes

It may be that the supplier feed contains a description, but you also want to include additional product information from other feed nodes.

    <option>Colour Tan</option>
        <p class="p1"><span style="font-size:18px;"><span class="s1">Mens wallet made in genuine calfskin soft leather
        with zip-pocket for coins, 8 credit card holders and 1 document holder.</span></span></p>
        <p class="p1"><span style="font-size:18px;"><span class="s1">Simple lines and functional design,
        a perfect accessory to always have at hand money and documents.</span></span></p>
        <group_name>DETAILED FEATURES</group_name>
        <attribute>Length: 11 cm 4.2 in</attribute>
        <attribute>Height: 9 cm 3.5 in</attribute>
        <attribute>Credit card slots: 8</attribute>
        <attribute>Compartments for bills: 2</attribute>
        <attribute>Pocket for coins: 1</attribute>
        <attribute>Transparent window: 3</attribute>
        <attribute>Slot for business cards: 2</attribute>

To include listed information from attribute_group in the product description in your Shopify store you can use the Liquid formula in the Description field of the Stockeo automation.

Use the following settings:

To get the result as below:

The example above illustrates the creation of automatic product descriptions in Shopify using XML as an example. Similarly, this works when the feed is a CSV or JSON file. In that case, use the column/field name instead of the node name between the curly brackets in the Liquid formula.
