I've uploaded the file for your review. Please let me know what is wrong. Thanks.
Thank you for contacting us. I have tried importing your file and got an error 'Malformed image url: 0064.jpg' for the very first line of your file.
This means that you have 'Image' column in your CSV, and Ecwid failed trying to get that image while importing.
Please, notice that actually you should have a URL (in the form of http://example.com/image.jpg
) in that column. The URL must point to a real existing image file (not a webpage containing an image, but the link to the image itself), and that image must be public accessible (i.e. not under password, nor other authentication required).
Practically, you should put all your images into a public folder on a web server, and then in the spreadsheet prepend your image file name with an URL to that folder.
Alternatively, you can delete this column from CSV or just omit it on import (use 'Skip column' in the import settings in place of Image URL column). This way you will import your products, but they will miss their images. Images can be imported later, with 'update on import' technique: http://kb.ecwid.com/w/page/26373353/...
Other than that, your file doesn't contain any problems and was imported smoothly when I skipped Image URL column.
