Displaying metafield on Storefront

When a metafield is added in the admin panel, you would want to display them on the storefront. To do so, you are required to make changes to the widget template from Design theme.

For example, we have added a metafield as "metafield name". To display the metafield on the product page, go to the product widget in the design theme and provide the following code:

<p ng-if="product.metafields.metafieldname">{{product.metafields.metafieldname}}</p>
