I am working on an automation to upload products from airtable to shopify. My product images are in the form of URLs - they are stored on airtable. I have about 20 images per product. I’m currently fetching the image via HTTP but realised just to import images it costs 20 operations per product.
Is there a way to upload images directly to shopify via the URL instead of using the HTTP fetch function? Shopify does allow image upload via src and I’m not sure how this can be set up.
Or is there another way to reduce the number of operations with photo upload?
