There isn’t a limit to the number of product details you can include in your automated catalog.
In order to include images in your data source (CSV, XLSX, Google Spreadsheet), you will need to add them as image links. As long as the link is valid and the images are public, they will show up in your Flipsnack publication.
It is advisable to connect your data source with Flipsnack through Google Spreadsheets, as it offers a sync option. Any updates made in your Google Spreadsheets document will show up in Flipsnack when you click the sync button. When using CSV or XLSX, you will have to re-upload the file for each update made in your spreadsheet.
This option is not available directly, but for more information please contact us via live chat.
