If you want to add multiple product images from your CSV file, you can upload it to your Shopify admin page. Because we are learning the way to import products to the store with a CSV file, there will have some things that you might need to understand.

Firstly, Shopify recommends that shop owners should view and edit their formatted CSV files on Google Sheets.

Secondly, a CSV file cannot contain anything but text, so if you want to import images, you will use the URLs link of those images. And the best way to get the link is to upload that image to Shopify, and the URLs will be generated automatically.

So I will share with you the steps to help you in the adding multiple images process.

To Add multiple product images to a CSV file:

Choose the product which you want to add product images in this file. For example, I choose Dress to add pictures. And I want to add three more images.

Step 1.3: Insert row

I select row number 5, 6, and 7. Afterward, click the right mouse button and you will see a drop-down list. Chose Insert 3 rows to add 3 new rows under the fourth line.


Step 2: To Copy + Paste the Handle

Step 2.1. Copy

After that, you will need to copy the link in the URL column. You can only copy one link at a time.


Drag the horizontal bar to the right, and you will see the Image Src column. Once you see that column, paste the URL link you have copied to each line.


After you have finished all the stages above, you need to save the file and then import it to Shopify.
