Uploading multiple photo products at once

Hi, I have a photography store and am specialising in event photography, Meaning I have to upload several hundred photo items at a time. All the items have the same description and price, is there a way I can automate the creation of the new product, add a thumbnail photo and add the full digital download file?  Or do I have to continue to do this one item at a time.

Hey, @Rlphotography.

If your event photography is all hosted in a public database, you can use a CSV file to upload multiple products at once. The Image Src column of the CSV file just requires the URL for the main image, and the URLs for each product's additional images can be added to the Variant Image column.


Alternatively, you can leave the Image Src and Variant Image columns blank and upload multiple images to each product in the admin after the CSV is imported. This option is helpful if you don't have your photographs in a public database and therefore don't have URLs for them. The CSV will still allow you to create multiple products at once including the title, price, and description for each. Then, you can just drag and drop multiple images into each product page in the admin. Please let me know if you have any questions!
