5. Open Variant Image Wizard

Open a Product's details, press More actions, and then Edit Variant Images

Variant Image Wizard will then open up in a new browser tab. You will be greeted with an introduction dialog. Hit Continue

If you have already set one image for every variant within your Product's details, you'll be presented with a message asking if you'd like to import them. Hit Yes or No based on your needs. If you hit No, you can always import these variant images later on.

6. Add media to a product variant

If you've previously uploaded images, videos, and/or models to your product and you now want to choose which ones to add to your product variants, follow the steps below 👇 Or, if you want to upload new images, videos, and/or models, jump to 7. Upload media to a product variant

i. Expand the product variant you want to add images, videos, and/or models to if the app has not already done so for you.

ii. Press Add media

iii. Select the media items you want to add to the product variant, and press Done on the top right.

Please note: By default, if a variant has no media items, all media of the product will be displayed for that variant.

iv. You can reorder these media items by dragging and dropping them in the product variant you expanded in step 1.

Repeat these above steps to add images, videos, and/or models to all of your variants.

If you are finding that this process if very repetitive, you can make use of our Bulk Edit feature. This feature works wonderfully if you are wanting to 1) quickly copying variant media to other variants, or 2) adding common media that you want to appear across multiple variants. Click here to learn more.

7. Upload media to a product variant

There are two possible methods to upload images, videos, and/or models to a product variant:

  • To your product's media, and then selecting them for a particular product variant. Use this method if the media items you want to upload will be used across multiple variants.

  • Directly to a particular product variant. Use this method to quickly attach images, videos, and/or models to a desired variant.

Please note: All media items uploaded, regardless of which method you choose, will be uploaded to your product's media.

Press one of the tabs below based on your preference! 👇
