Bulk Product Uploads
While our partners are able to upload products/info via CSV file (the WooCommerce CSV File Template), Product Images must be uploaded into the Media section, and then the link can be individually uploaded to each product.
While we agree that it’s a bummer that we can’t upload product photos via CSV, we are glad that all of the info can be uploaded in that way as a time-saver – then, it’s just one final step of attaching the images.
When uploading products in bulk, please make sure you follow the official CSV format:
