Metafields consists of a namespace, a key, and a value. The namespace is used to group related meta fields together, the key is used to identify the specific meta field within the namespace, and the value is the data that you want to store. You can use metafields to store information such as product variations, additional product details, or custom order data. They can be accessed using the Shopify API or through third-party apps.

- 1.Product variations: You could use metafields to store information about different variations of a product, such as size or color.
