You can import and export all the images of a product in a WooCommerce store with the free version of WooCommerce Product Import Export plugin. First, let us see how we can add the product images in the CSV file during import.
Here we have attached a sample CSV with product images.
Adding product images in CSV
In the input CSV file, you can add the images of a product either by:
- Image name
- Image url
To add multiple images, you can use a pipe symbol ‘|’ to separate the image URLs/ names. In the CSV file, the image URLs/names are added under the column: Images.
Here, the first image is taken as the Product image (also known as Featured image) and the rest of the images are added into the Product gallery.
In case of drop box and google drive images, ensure that the specified URL downloads the image locally rather than just pointing at the image location.
