Product tags are an important part of inventory control because they help you manage and organize your products and orders like a pro. These tags are not only intended for your customers, but they also make it easier for you to categorize and search for products within your e-commerce store, especially if product numbers increase.

Shopify Product Tags

Product tags are labels you can use to categorize a range of items like products, orders, customer data, blog posts, returns, and transfers. By using selected tags, you can easily search and add filters to your drop-down menus; e.g., you can group all the products you source from the same distributor for your e-commerce store together.

Benefits of Product Tags

  • Tags help streamline the purchasing process for both sellers and buyers
  • They make it easier for sellers to create automated collections, helping them stay organized
  • Tags allow customers to search for and filter products easily and efficiently
  • They provide flexibility, as product tags can be easily edited if mistakes are made

Best Practices for Using Shopify Product Tags

Below, we touch on some of the more important best practices to help you use the tags optimally and get the most out of them for your Shopify store.

Use Tags for Promotions & Discounts

Everybody loves a good discount. These product tags allow you to apply promotions or discounts to a group of certain products. All you need to do is add the tags to your chosen collection and show the product badges in every store section. For more flexibility, add the tags using the promotion type and not the features of the product—it's easy to reuse these tags.

Create Tags Based on Shipping Details

Streamline your logistics and distribution processes by creating tags based on shipping details. You can quickly and easily check on the status of orders and deliveries if you have tags that will allow you to filter according to delivery dates, urgency (e.g., the package must be delivered in time for Christmas or a birthday), zip codes, etc.

The tags can also be implemented in emails if you need to send updates about cancellations or partially filled orders. This will all contribute to a better customer experience because you remain in control of all your processes.
