About Export & Import Tags

Product tags provide a unique way to relate products to each other. Contrary to categories, there is no hierarchy in tags; so there are no ‘subtags’. In an exported sheet, tags are added, edited before finally preparing for import.

Growcer allows you to keep a track of all your tags in a spreadsheet. Product tags are used to help buyers buy products that belong to similar genres.

Whereas for the Seller product tags helps keep inventory organized and easily trackable. At the time of setting up a catalog, the tags sheet helps you know which product tags are to be used and which are to be excluded to be searched and found on your online store.
