Where to host images so that share link has a valid image extension? CSV Product Import

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of importing my products with the upload template CSV. I have all of my images hosted within our company Google drive, and have added the public share links to my CSV under "Hosted Image URLs."

After importing, though, only a blank square with a grey diagonal slash is visible where an imported photo should be. My guess is this is because my URLs don't end in .jpeg, .png, etc. 

Is there a way to get a link to my images hosted in Drive so that I won't encounter this problem? Is there a different hosting service I should be using that will automatically generate a link with an image extension?

Amazing answer !

Would you have any advice for me? I have 100 JPG files and would like to get them automatically added to the CSV file for 100 distinct products, but don't know how do to that efficiently.

Shall I copy them all to Google Drive? How would I then get their 100 distinct random URLs to shove them into the CSV?

Upload the files to Google Drive in a folder.

There are probably limits to how much GD can handle at a time so you may want to upload in batches.

Then go into the folder and select the files. Right click and click Share.


In the Share dialog select Copy links.


The links should now be on the clipboard.

From there paste into a text editor to start manipulating the links. They will come over as a comma separated list.

I don't know how many files you can do at once like this in GD. So you may want to work in batches at this step as well. Start of with something like 25 files.
