Transform the value of attributes automatically and accurately.

Attribute Value Transformers provide merchants with the capability to transform the product and variant attributes through various transformation rules. This enables consistent and accurate conversion of supplier-provided attribute values into the desired value as required by the business.

Some examples of an attribute value transformation rule-

Transform the value of “Category” attribute

  • Tshirt → Fashion > Apparel > Topwear > Tshirt

  • Shoes → Fashion > Footwear > Shoes

Transform the value of “Vendor ID” attribute

  • 15 → Asian, Inc

  • 18 → Viets Corp

To access the Proposal Department, login to your dashboard, select Merchant Settings, then Attribute Value Transformers, then Create Transformer.
