Ken September 11, 2018


If you want to import 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.
