Below are some of the most common questions regarding importing, exporting, and uploading within Product Options.

Here are the questions that are covered in this article:

  • I can't see my upload. What happened?
  • What is the maximum file upload size?
  • When customers upload images, where do they go?

Select the question to view the answer:

At this time, Shopify does not have a way to export line item properties (our Product Options) in the Orders .CSV export.

There is another app in the Shopify App Store, called Xporter, which may be able to export the line item properties into a spreadsheet.

Exports: You can safely export your products from Shopify. Options will not appear on the products in the .CSV file export.

Imports: It is also safe to import products with the app active. If options are applied to a group of products (collection), the options will not automatically be applied to the new products. Open the Options app, edit the relationship group, and simply re-save.

There is no way to restrict the type of files that are uploaded. Files are uploaded to Shopify in a format they accept. While we don't know the exact limitations, a file size larger than 10 MB does not appear to be accepted.

If your theme uses AJAX, file upload may not be working properly; there is a custom fix for this. Visit Use File Upload with an Ajax Theme for instructions.

We do not know the exact limits of file uploads. From our tests and user feedback, the maximum file size you can upload to Shopify appears to be 10MB per upload.

The maximum image dimensions that can be uploaded is 2048 x 2048 pixels.

All images or files will reside on Shopify's servers. A link is automatically generated to the file location. In some situations, the image preview will be displayed. Selecting the link will allow the image to be viewed in the cart and the email confirmations.
