The Problem They Faced

With a large product catalog, editing inventory was proving an incredibly time-consuming task for UnEarthedCandles.

When it came to bulk edits, changing as little as one word within the description or product name, across a small inventory of products could take many hours.

Beyond the effort and time taken to manually edit products, when working methodically through a large inventory list, simply locating each product was a challenge…

“You don’t always get to hit the back button and end up at the same product you were working on, ready to just to click to the next product. You often have to scroll down the page to get back to where you left off each time. Multiply that times the number of products you have to edit and it can turn into, literally, days or even weeks of editing. Heaven forbid you have multiple edits to each product!”

The Sweet Smell Of Success

In dire need of a solution, Lisa Clark of UnEarthedCandles turned to the Shopify App Store.

On discovering the listing for Bulk Product Editor & Sync, at first her expectations were modest.

She thought, at best, that she might find something which enabled her see all titles and descriptions in a spreadsheet, and hoped that at as a result, she would at least be able to eliminate the page-load and scrolling.

When I realised that you could replace something within the description, for multiple products – in one inquiry – I thought, “No way, it has to be saying something else.” I was absolutely floored when I learned it did exactly that.
