Manual vs randomly generated dummy data; which is best?

Asked a year ago

Has anyone tried both methods before? What were your results? I currently sell clothes for babies/toddlers on my Shopify store but I'm planning to expand into clothes for pre-teens and teens as well. What do you guys think?

The choice between manual and randomly generated dummy data depends on your unique requirements.

Manual data is the better choice if you need data specific to your business or industry. For a mockup e-commerce site, manually creating dummy data for your products can help you ensure that the data reflects your actual inventory and helps you test your site's functionality accurately.

However, if you need a large amount of data quickly and it doesn't have to be specific to any particular scenario, randomly generated data is more suitable.
