Bulk editing

You can use the bulk editor tool to make changes to multiple products and product variants at the same time. From your Shopify admin, you can select the products that you want to change, choose which properties you want to update, and then make your changes.

When a product has multiple variants, then you can only bulk edit the inventory of the product from the Inventory section in your Shopify admin.

You can also use the bulk editor to edit the properties of your collections and customers.

The more information you try to bulk change at one time, the longer your bulk changes will take to complete. You can also use a CSV file to bulk edit a larger number of list items for your products, your inventory, or your customers. After your CSV file is uploaded in your Shopify admin, you receive a confirmation email from Shopify at the email account that you used to set up your Shopify store.

If you use the Microsoft Edge web browser to edit list items in bulk, then it can cause errors due to a limited URL length. Consider using other web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.

Select list items to edit

You can select list items to edit in bulk in your Shopify admin.


  1. From your Shopify admin, click Products, Collections, Inventory, or Customers.
  2. Use the checkboxes to select each list item that you want to edit.
  3. Click Bulk edit.

Select list item properties to edit

The bulk editor displays the list items that you selected and some of their properties in a table. You can change which properties display in the table.

For example, if you're bulk editing your products, then each column in the table represents a product property, such as price, SKU, and compare-at price. Each row in the table represents a selected product or product variant.

To add a property to the bulk editing table, click Columns, and then select all the properties that you want to add to the table.

To remove a property from the bulk editing table, click Columns, and then deselect all the properties that you want to remove from the table.

Edit list item properties in bulk

After you select the properties that you want to edit, you can click the fields in the table to enter new data or edit existing data.


  1. Click and then type in a field in the table to enter or edit the property for that list item.
  2. Click Save. If any errors occur, then you need to fix them, and then click Save again.
