Importing Item Images

The following information represents a quick guide on how to complete a mass import of images for items. For questions or assistance with importing images, please contact support@posim.com or call 800.553.9314 to speak with a tech support representative.

Within POSIM, users can complete a mass import of images for items – this is called an “Item Image Import.”

NOTE: It is best practice to always backup the database prior to any type of import.

Before the import in POSIM can begin, there must be a folder on the computer which contains the item images to be imported. The name of each image in this folder must match the Item SKU for the item it’s being added to. For example, to import an image for Item SKU ‘1015’, then image name would need to be ‘1015.png’ or ‘1015.jpg’.

NOTE: Importing images will overwrite any images that previously existed on item cards prior to the import. Only one image per item can be stored in POSIM.

  1. From the POSIM Navigator, click on the Administration header. Select Utilities, then select Import Manager.
