You are able to upload images for the store's products by using the Import Wizard. Before starting be sure the FTP connection is configured properly in Store Manager.

Go to Settings->Preferences->FTP section and check the specified credentials pressing the option for verification. You should receive confirmation of a successful FTP connection in the popup message:


FTP connection succesful


Now, you can launch the Wizard of Products Iimport:

Import/Export Products Wizard

1. You have prepared .CSV or .txt file where you have column with correct Image URLs for each Product and you have Images with Identical names with Images in folder on your PC.


2. In the Select Fields Delimiter and Quote Characters step you have to check Upload Images function and specify the path to the folder which serves for uploading images locally after importing.

3. On the assignment step of the Wizard be sure the columns with images are linked with the appropriate fields of the store database:

4. Move on to the options step. You will see the checkbox which helps to delete the product images before import - i.e. illustrations which are already assigned to the products will be erased and overwritten to the new ones from the import file.

Check or leave it unchecked depending your needs.

After Import Store Manager will Upload your Images to FTP automatically and you will be able to see Images in Products page.
