Removed CA Additional Field but Metafield not falling off on Shopify


What happens when a Shopify metafield is set in ChannelApe as an additional field, pushed to Shopify and then unset in ChannelApe?

I’m seeing a metafield in Shopify that was once set in ChannelApe but no longer exists in ChannelApe. However when I sync ChannelApe and Shopify, the metafield isn’t falling off on the Shopify side.


Right now the ChannelApe Shopify app does not delete metafields from Shopify even if the additional fields used to create them are unset in ChannelApe. You will need to manually delete the metafield within Shopify.
