Overview

Files & Images is command central for hosting .jpg, .gif or .png files to be used throughout the site. 

Importing Products

When importing products, use files and images when images are not on a web server somewhere.

If you do not have images located on a web server you can use the WSM Content>Files & Images feature to upload the files. Create a folder called "allproductimages". This will allow you to easily delete the images after your importing is complete. Note: All web images must be a .jpg, .gif or .png file format.

To capture the URL for your Import File, click the View icon to the left of the file you uploaded.
