What the best way to collect pictures. ?

Is there a program that can download pictures based on UPC so I can post them on my commerce store website?

    Where are you getting your products? Doesn't your supplier have pictures you can use?

      I have to manually upload all the pictures that I m get from the supplier

      I just checked out shopmaster close but they do not import by UPC

      Is there a Product Importer that can take care fo the product images for WooCommerce?

    I guess the best way to collect a picture is by capturing those pictures by yourself.

    It depends on the platform you are using. You can simply input the image URL on Shopify, for instance, and it grabs the image, copies it and then creates a new image URL for your site.

    I am not a drop shipper. I get my order from a private wholesaler. They do have picture but I would have to manually download and upload.

    What I would like done is collect the picture from Amazon by using the UPC either directly import the picture to my website automatically kind of like what Shopmaster is doing..

    Thanks

    Some of Amazon's pictures are their own pictures so you would be violating copyright. Big no-no.

    Does your supplier give you a CSV or XML file to upload product data to your site and if so does that file have the file name of the picture for each product?


    How many products do you have on your website?

      Yes the supplier does have a confidential member only website.

      I can download the CSV and upload the general Information but not the picture.


      My supplier have their own pictures but I can not download them Automatic. I have to click the images at least 3 times before I can download.



      It seems like most of the pictures on Amazon are the same pictures that my supplier give.

      I am planning to start out with 300 products.

      Thanks everyone for your input.
