Manage Product Tags in Magento
By Jithin on February 22nd, 2016
If you are running an eCommerce store, you already know the importance of product tags. But if you don’t know, you can use product tags to allow users to filter products by specific groups. For example, If you are selling mobile phones in your store, you can sort the mobile by colors, the number of cameras, types of screens and much more. You can create any kind of product tag to allow users to see other products in the same tag. For example, your customers can see other products in the same tag.
Every eCommerce platform will allow you to manage tags in your store. If you are using Magento, it is very easy to manage product tags. It is a great way to organize products in random groups that your customers may like. So, Let’s get started with the tutorial. To follow this tutorial visually, refer to the screenshots attached after every step.
NOTE: If you are using the older version of Magento, you can follow this tutorial. If you are a Magento2 user, Note that we can no longer manage tags with products.
