Bulk-attach files to Shopify products using a CSV

Which plan do I need?

You will need any paid plan, starting from the Basic plan.

Important instructions for the CSV

All files (assets) are automatically linked to the products via the SKUs of the Shopify products. Please ensure everything is spelt correctly, otherwise, the asset will not connect to the product.
Do not remove or rename the column headers in the CSV.
There is a 30MB upload limit for a CSV file.

Two columns to fill:

SKU – This is your stock-keeping unit. You can assign a unique code (SKU) to each product & variant on the Shopify product page
Asset name – This is the name of the asset. You must include the file extension! For example – filename.mp4

What if I want to attach multiple assets to one product?

If you want to attach multiple assets to a single product/variant, just create another row and add the same SKU, and then add the new asset name beside it. Example below:
