How to create custom badges

Creating a new definition

Custom badges are easy to create and all done in your Shopify admin. The first step is to define a custom metafield that Modular can recognize.

Start in your Shopify Admin -> Settings and choose Custom data from the left panel and then click on Products (click on the images to zoom):
