Product badges with metafields

Add custom product badges to individual products easily using metafields

Feature introduced in Broadcast 3.2

Broadcast makes adding custom individual product badges or sometimes known as stickers very easy to implement and manage by using metafields.

When utilizing metafields you simply create one metafield to activate the functionality. From there you can add badge text to any of your products and Broadcast will automatically generate a custom badge for that product on collection pages or any section using a product grid.
