|Size||Size||The size variant option in your grid|
|Third||Attribute 3 (as needed)||X||The third attribute option in your grid. Typically the width of a shoe, additional accent, etc.|
|Tags||Tags||X||The field used to add the Accumula tag to your products indicating which products will push to Shopify. This can be used to push additional product tags to Shopify as well.|
|Weight||Weight||The weight of the product. While you do not have to enter the weight in Heartland to create the item. Accumula needs this field for mapping purposes.|
|Price||Compare at Price||This is typically the Original Price field in Heartland which would be used as the compare at price in Shopify.|
|Online Price||Price||This is typically the Current Price filed in Heartland. If you wish to have separate pricing in store versus online, you may create a custom field for Online Price if needed.|
|Optional Fields:||Shopify Translation:||Definition:|
|Brand||Brand||This is typically the primary Default Vendor from Heartland which can also be interpreted as Manufacturer.|
|Category||Type||This translates to Type in Shopify|
|UPC||Barcode||This translates to Barcode in Shopify|
|Short Description||Title||By default, Accumula maps to the Heartland title of a grid or item. If you wish to use the same description in Heartland and Shopify you can skip this step, this field is for the online title in Shopify. It can be helpful if you need a different title in Shopify compared to the description you use in Heartland.|
Heartland provides a handy way to update Tags in bulk using Heartland's Import/Update Feature. You may also want to add Tags in Heartland representing other fields such as Department or Season. This is a flexible way to organize and manage data in Ecommerce.
TIP: Adding a tag to a Grid will automatically add the Tag to all Items in the Grid.
