Image Overrides: Import/Export

Image Overrides allow you to change the product image that is provided in the PSS catalog or, add an image to a product that is missing a product image altogether.  This feature grants you the ability to Import externally hosted image URLs for each MPN by way of CSV file.

It also enables you to Export every single Image Override that you have in PSS at once.

PSS Home Page > File Center

On the left-hand menu, click "Client: Import Image Overrides"

Step 1 - Download Template

Download the Compatible File Template which is in the blue hyperlink.  Open the File Template from your computer.
For this template and any others in PSS, make sure that you review the developer notes so that you can ensure that your file meets PSS specifications.

Step 2 - Populate Template With Data

This template has two (2) columns, some of which are optional.  Below we offer an explanation of what each column header represents.


The SKU from the distributor but in the PSS format with the proper prefix.  If you are unsure what the correct format or prefix is please visit this article on   SKU and MPN Definitions.

Technically Image Overrides are on the MPN or Product Level, however, dealers don't always have access to an MPN list form the distributors so we allow you to override the image by Distributor SKU and then we apply it to the MPN.  You only need to override one SKU for each MPN to get the job done.


Here we just need a valid image URL.  To make sure that your externally hosted images are in compliance with marketplace requirements you will want to have them as HTTPS and not HTTP.

Step 3 - Upload Your Data

When you click "Client: Import Price Overrides" you will see "Choose File" next to File Upload.  Click this button to locate the file on your computer.  Double click your file and it will be ready to go in PSS.

Enter your email address if you want to be notified when the job is complete.  (optional).

Click Submit

Step 4 - Monitor Job Processing

You will want to monitor the Image Override Job that you just ran in File Center.  The job will be in a Pending or Processing status until PSS has completed it.  These jobs typically take 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the CSV file.

Once finished you will see the job Completed or Complete w/ Warnings. Click on the job and you will have access to a Processing Report.  Open the report and the success or failure of each line item will be reported.
