I have some images that will be imported to Commerce Media, and put them to a folder, name it as “Images” for example.

Write a simple csv file and call it “mapping.csv”

Open cmd and execute this command:

AssetImporter ..\..\Commerce75CodeSamplePackage\mapping.csv ..\..\Commerce75CodeSamplePackage\Images D:\EPiServer\MyEPiServerSite\wwwroot babycatalog –byasset

Restart web application and open site, you can see:
