Batch Add Images to Product Builder

To batch add images to Product Builder, follow these steps:

Before Attempting the Bulk Image import, calculate your total number of image scenarios. Multiply the number of options within each step together.

Example:

  • Step 1: 8 options
  • Step 2: 3 options
  • Step 3: 9 options
  • Step 4: 5 options

8 x 3 x 9 x 5 = 1,080 (Number of Image Previews)

The bulk image import will work in most cases but if your possible number of image scenarios is over 100,000; the bulk image import may not work properly. If you have any questions, please Email our Support Wizards.

Before you can batch import your images, you need to store them somewhere online. We recommend uploading them to your Shopify Store. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. From "Shopify Admin", select Settings.
