1. Add or find media1,media2, etc to your file (you only need as many headers as you plan on having photos).
2. Paste the URL for the image in the cell for that product - you can use the same URL for multiple products
3. Save the file & upload as normal
- Adding Images by .zip Folder -
- Place your images in the same order as they appear in the spreadsheet.
- You can do this with a number in front of the file name 1-filename.png, 2-filename.png, etc
- You can do this by naming your images with the SKU or Title of the product (or other unique identifier) and then sorting the sheet in that order using Excel's built in sort features
- Compress (ZIP) the folder
- Assign the number of images to each product in the mediacount header.
- You can assign any number of photos from 1-10 to a sku in this way
- If you want to use the same exact photo for two consecutive products, you can do so by typing copy in the cell.
- In the below example, the first image goes to SD0005, the next two (images 2 & 3) go to SD0006, the same photos (images 2 & 3) since they are copied , (image 4) goes to SD0014, (image 5) will go to SD0039, SD1123, SD1124, and then the last for (images 6, 7, 8, & 9) go to SD1677.
- Save the file as a .csv
- When uploading make sure to select the .zip folder containing your images in the "Select Media" section. Currently there is a limit of 2,500 products and a 300MB size limit on the .zip in the regular system.
- If your .zip folder is larger than this, you can visit bulk.suredone.com/bulk for up to 2GB files.
- Click upload - you will be redirected to the Results page.
- At the top there will be a preview - click View Preview"
- Check the preview to make sure it looks right
- Confirm the image upload, or cancel it if it doesn t look right
- Note, even if you cancel the image upload, the rest of the actions on your spreadsheet will still be performed.
- The images will start populating in your account after you process. They will be hosted on SureDone s secure servers for free.
If you are uploading images via url and they are appearing broken in SD (seen below) they are likely not hosted on a secure server (http://, instead of https://).
