The image field supports multiple image links, separated by a comma. You can map multiple images field with your store.

For example, if the images are in multiple fields, then input as follows. "images1,images2,images3"

The image will only be added if the product doesn’t have any images before the update.

Support publicly downloadable images only. Images that require a login, FTP, or Google Drive link to download are not supported.


Downloadable video is not supported in Shopify. The video needs to be hosted on Youtube or Vimeo.


More settings of the image field:


1. Skip existing images

  • By default, Stock Sync will only add images if the product has no image.
  • Enabling this option will check the existing image file names before importing the new images.


2. Warning! This will clear all existing images before updating

  • Enabling this option will remove all existing images
  • The option will revert to the disabled after the process. This is to avoid keep deleting and adding more images.
  • It will only clear the images of the SKUs that match the feed file and the store.



Example use case:

If the product in your store has image A and in the feed file is image B.
By default (both disabled), after the update, it will be image A.
If you enable Option 1, then it will be image A and image B.
If you enable both options 1 and 2, then it will be image B.

1. Image column separator

You can specify if the image field in the file uses a different type of column separator.


2. URL prefix

Add a URL prefix to every image link. You will need this if all your images are not specified with domains and only have the file path or filename.

By using <image_file>

Stock Sync will auto-replace <image_file> with the file name from the feed file.
For example, URL prefix "https://www.image.com/images/large/<image_file>.jpg".


3. Image Alt Column Mapping

If Stock Sync could not load or find the Images that you have specified in the Product Images column Mapping.

Then, you need to map the Image Alt to display text as a replacement.


4. Default Image URL

Setting a default Image will use that image if that product does not have any image in its column. It supports multiple default images, separated by a comma.


5. Unescape URL 

If enabled, it will decode the URL by replacing some characters.

Example: https%3A//www.utilities-online.info/ will change to https://www.utilities-online.info/ if enable it. 



6. Modify Image URL 


Before enable Modify image URL, make sure there is image extension for the url in feed file and setup needed. Example of image extension, hello.jpg


If enabled, it will deliver the image that is not retrievable via the link. Click here to know more about the setup.
