There are several ways to upload images to the Shift4Shop Online Store Manager. You can manually upload a small number (8) of image files at a time or upload all of your images at once via FTP. This article will go over the various ways to upload your images and the benefits of each method.
You may only need to upload one or two images to your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager. If so, this is the best method to use as it is the quickest method for uploading a small number of files.
Log into your Shift4Shop Online Store Manager.
Using the left navigation, go to Products > Images.
This will take you to the store's file manager, where your product images are typically contained.
3. Click on the Upload Files button at the top right of the screen.
This will open up an additional popup window where you can upload product images.
4. You can either drag files into the space provided or otherwise click on the Browse button (in the top left) to navigate your computer for the files.
5. Once the images are selected, click on Start to begin the upload for each individually or click Upload All to batch upload them.
After they are uploaded, you may close the window altogether if you are done, or otherwise, click the Clear button for each image to remove it from the list (if you have more files to upload).
FTP Image Upload
FTP is the best and quickest method for uploading a large amount of files, however, you must have a working knowledge of file transferring to use this method.
FTP is mostly used by advanced users, but with practice, most people can become easily familiar with it.
Your FTP username, password, and hostname are provided to you in the Welcome Email you received when you started your account with Shift4Shop.
Once you FTP to the server, you will want to upload your images into the web/assets/images folder.
