Asad asked 1 year ago
Hi, I have a pre-sale question. I would like my product featured image to automatically update when external product page also updates their image. For example: I have a product page: http://new.vanguardcollectibles.com/product/apr200928/ I want to link my product's feature image to image on this external product page: https://www.previewsworld.com/Catalog/APR200928 Any time this external product page changes their image I would my product feature image to automatically change as well? Is this possible using your External Images plugin? Thank you

If this external image url remains the same, then the image would update. If the image URL actually changes, then you’d need to use Price Comparison Pro as well to scrape the images from the source product page.
