In Magento 2 you can use external URL into CSV.

So you can use add url with www.

Image File Directory : keep it default one. It will copy into pub/media/catalog/product.

  • @SunilPatel is there any possibility that magento do not copy all the images from external url to it's own directory that is pub/media/catalog/product. As I am storing my images on S3 so I don't want to take the space on my server for the images. Mar 13, 2020 at 15:13
