In the earlier sections, you have learnt to create a single product as well as bulk products. Now, what if you wish to update the attributes (e.g. material, colour, weight, etc) of one or more products?
Manually editing the products and changing their attributes is clearly not the solution. Therefore, Fynd Platform has an option of Partial Update. You can upload an Excel or CSV file containing the product details along with the new attribute values.

Primary Identifier-related Attributes:
- Prices: Actual Price, Selling Price, Currency
- Volumetric Data: Length, Width, Height, Weight

- Appearance: Colour, Primary Colour, Pattern, Material, Primary Material
- Customs: HSN Code, Country of Origin
- Information: Description, Short Description, Highlights...and many more
