Using images of consistent quality, size, and proportion can give your webshop a more professional look and/or commercial appeal.

Another best practice is to establish a naming convention for your files and organizing them so you can find the originals, should you ever need them. Be sure to always use the Item no. (perhaps followed by an incremental number) in the File Name, for reference.

You can assign multiple images to an item. Before doing so, however, we need to make sure two things are set up.


Image Parameters

First, we need to head over to the E-commerce Integration Setup. Go to Product Catalog > Parameters for Image > Image File Location Type and select where the images are located.

If via a website link, choose 'URL'. If you have an image on your local system or server, choose 'File'.




WooCommerce specific settings

The WooCommerce API by default only supports images via URL.

The following workaround, however, can be used to support Base64 images.

To start, install the following plugin in Woo: WooCommerce Media API. Next, change the config.php file on the webserver where the webshop is hosted, and add this line of code:


To send over file-based images by API, different endpoints should be used.

Finally, the Sales Channel page has additional settings to influence the behavior of sending images to WooCommerce. Choose the Image Type and the sorting and whether sorting should be be done per "Position' or "Entry No.'.

Assigning Images to an Item

To assign an image to a product, simply go to the Tinx item list page and click Images in the banner to open the Image List page.
