Is the app mobile-friendly?
Yes. Both specification and comparison tables are 100% mobile-friendly. The appearance of tables will automatically adapt based on the available space to guarantee that your customers can read the content easily.
Does the app follows accessibility best practice?
Yes. Our app generates semantic HTML suited for specification and comparison tables. It is fully accessible by using a keyboard and is fully compatible with assistive technologies. All your users will therefore be able to enjoy the best possible experience without any compromise.
Can I customize the appearance of tables to match my brand?
Yes. The app offers a table editor allowing you to control appearance settings such as font size, border color, or spacing.
If you need to customize the appearance of tables further to create a unique design, you can take advantage of the Liquid metaobject that the app is creating automatically and create your own custom layout (coding knowledge is needed).
Can I translate the tables into multiple languages?
Yes, Spec & Compare app natively integrates with Shopify native localization system to offer a seamless, SEO-friendly translation.
Can I use the app on a development store?
If you are an agency/developer creating a store on a development plan, you are eligible to use the app for free for an unlimited period of time. However, once the theme is converted to a paid plan, you need to subscribe to the app. We reserve the right to report your store to Shopify legal team if you are using our app on a paid store without a valid app subscription.
Can I reuse existing metafields as part of the specification tables?
Yes. Spec & Compare app supports three ways to extract data from your product:
- Basic product information: basic information such as vendor, price, product options, or weight can be automatically retrieved by the app.
- Metafields/metaobjects: if you have already created metafields and/or metaobjects as part of your product information, you can connect those fields to a specification table attribute to automatically re-use them in the app.
- Custom attributes: finally, you can create extra attributes inside the app whose goal is only to show on specification and comparison tables. Those attributes are, internally, also saved as Shopify metafields for best performance.
Those three approaches can be mixed (we actually recommend that).
Can I import/export product attributes?
Spec & Compare app saves all the information as product metafields. While the app does not offer a built-in import/export service, you can use a dedicated app such as Matrixify.
Where is the data hosted?
All the data (including table schema and product attributes) is saved on Shopify servers exclusively. No data is
hosted on our servers. This ensures the best possible performance and better safety for you.
