Additional_image_link (Premium feature)
Specify more than one image
By default there is just a single image per product.
In order to add more than one image to a product, you will have to leverage the "additional_image_link" field.
This can then be used to create dynamic slide show ads on Facebook.
How to add multiple images
No Variants #
If your feed uses the No variants setting and you are on a paid plan, you are all set. The feed then adds all available product images from shopify to each item in the feed.
Include all Variants #
If you are not using the No variants setting, the additional_image_link field will not automatically be filled as this would result in a lot of duplicate images for all the available variants. You can manually add any images you like (does not have to be a Shopify product image), though
This is how to do it in a nutshell:
- Log into your shopify shop
- Access bulk editor by putting
/admin/bulk?resource_name=Product&edit=metafields.facebook.additional_image_linkbehind your shop URL
- The bulk editor page comes up, where you can then enter any URL's divided by commas under the additional image link field
- You are done:)
