It’s preferable that you separate your images using the | separator because some images on some platforms actually have commas in the image URL.

However, the External Images plugin does include compatibility for comma separated image URLs with the caveat that if your image URLs contain a comma then those specific images will fail to be imported.

So – either switch from using commas to using a pipe symbol for guaranteed compatibility, or ensure you avoid images with commas in the URL and just copy that single source field to the external_image_url Custom Field.
