What are Shopify tags and how to use them?

Tags is a feature in Shopify to quickly organize and classify various items, such as products, orders, transfers, returns, customer data and even articles.

Learning tags usage can increase shop owner productivity. In this article, we will explore the following:

What do Shopify tags

Shopify tags are hidden from your customers. They are present in your administration area to help you organize content.

For example, if you have seasoned store deals, like products that are usually sold on Xmas – you can tag them with xmas tag. Once Xmas is over – you can quickly stop promoting those products and focus on another tag group.

What are Shopify tags used for

Shopify allows to add tags on:

  • Products
  • Transfers
  • Customers
  • Blog posts
  • Orders

Are Shopify tags case sensitive

Tags are not case sensitive. This means that Gift and gift are the same tag.

In order to differentiate tags, you can use numbers or hyphens. Prefix tags with year, version number, season or any other common attribute.
