copying metafields from all products
I want to have the same metafields for each of my products. My products are just different variations on the same product. How do I copy over all the fields so that I don't have to deal with the tedious of creating the same metafields over and over for each of the products?
If you use Metafields Pro which allows you to import/export via csv files, you can export the metafields first. Then open the csv file in your favorite spreadsheet program, edit the file to use the variations of your products.

If you are using the Product by handle file format, then you would need to put in new values under the column product_handle. Say you have a product with the handle shiny-widget-1 and you want shiny-widget-2 to have the same metafields as shiny-widget-1. You would just replace shiny-widget-1 with shiny-widget-2.
If you are dealing with Variants, then look at Variant Sku and Variant Multi-key format.
