If you need support from Yola please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or make use of our live chat service! We are working on a new approach to community-based support and during this transition period we are not adding any new threads to this forum. Many thanks to everyone who has participated over the years and we look forward to unveiling a new peer-to-peer support system soon!
The import of your products can be done with text files generally CSV or related and is a straight forward import simply mapping your product file to the configurable import table.
The Online Store uses your product image in two instances: A thumbnail in the catalogue and a larger image for the specific product description image.
The thumbnails are always jpeg and automatically generated from the uploaded image irrespective of file format, so the thumbnail doesn't support animation. The product description image though can be a gif and animated without issues.
