Building a simple feed from tab delimited file and having additional image problems

Visitor ✭ ✭ ✭

Hi all, I hate to ask such a simple question but I am having trouble getting more than one or two images to show up in Google Shopping.

 

I have created a basic feed with one item and several (size) options.  When I upload my feed i do not get errors but I only get the main image to show.  I have pasted a portion of my feed below.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi,

You can't use multiple additional image link columns. Only use one and separate additional images with a comma.
First Id example:
id: CB0208-06
additional image link: https://cdn6.bigcommerce.com/s-ofil74lb3q/product_images/uploaded_images/cb0208b.jpg?t=1462892849, https://cdn6.bigcommerce.com/s-ofil74lb3q/product_images/uploaded_images/cb0208c.jpg?t=1462892852

Let me know if this helped.

Thanks Stefan. I think I did what you are suggesting in my first attempt and the main image and the first additional image showed up but no more. I will try it again and confirm.

Thanks again!

One more note...

I uploaded the feed with the suggested changes and once again have two images (out of 6) showing. Interestingly enough, I changed the order of image URL's in my feed and I see the main image and the 2nd additional image. I will include the data below.

Thanks again for helping out an old fool!

There is usually a delay between the time you post the new feed and the time the products have updated data in Merchant Center. That's probably why even though you changed the ordering you still see the same two images and can't see a third one.

I would wait a day before checking the products in Merchant Center again.

Do note that Google may or may not use additional images in the Shopping Channel. So if you have added them and they are partially shown or not at all. Than there is not much else you can do to change this as it is all automated.

However if you are saying they are not visible in Merchant Center, than ensure you only have one column for additional links and as stefan mentioned separate with comma.

Products are usually re checked every day, however the update might take longer.
