You can upload CSV files in Creatopy through Feed. You can make multiple ad variations using CSV files, saving time for ad designs. In the CSV, you can store your product's name, image, headline, body text, CTA, target URL, etc.
We recommend using Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, or any spreadsheet software for better data visualization.
Specific requirements must be met when you upload or source the CSV to Creatopy, which you can find below.
CSV upload requirements
- Include column headers
The first row of the CSV will be treated as a column header row, which will bind your content categories to the elements from your design.
You can add data such as Product Name, Image, Headline, Body Text, etc.
- List each item or product on its row
On each row, you should describe a variation of the item you'd like to showcase in the design.
- Choose images of the same size and orientation
If you're using images for your ad variations, ensure that the images have the same size and orientation and the objects in them have the exact placement in the picture.
- Use a protected source for your image files
Ensure that your image¹ files are served from an SSL-protected source. This can be easily spotted by checking if the protocol has an "HTTPS://" value instead of "HTTP://" in its URL.
Below, you can find a list of free image-hosting websites that you can use to upload your photos. Once the images have been uploaded, use the Image URL provided by the website in your CSV file.
- Check the file format and encoding
Save the spreadsheet in a Comma Separated Value (CSV) format with a UTF-8 Unicode Text encoding.
- Maximum file size
The maximum accepted file size is 2MB. However, you can bypass the file size by serving the CSV via URL.

Note¹: When uploading your photos, avoid using Google Drive, Dropbox, or any other personal cloud storage account.
