How to create links in bulk?

Short.cm lets you create short links in bulk in several ways.

  1. Use Short.cm API.

    With Short.cm API, you can shorten up to 1000 links in one API call. You can create 5 requests per 10 seconds (1 request = 1000 URLs).

    It works almost the same as a single link creation endpoint, but it accepts an array of URLs and returns an array of responses back. If any URL fails to be added, it turns an error object back as an array element. The method is not transactional. It can insert some links from the list and return an error for others.

  2. Use a Google spreadsheet.

Using a Google Spreadsheet is convenient if you have a document with a list of long links. You need just to import a file to a sheet and create short links.

The detailed instruction below helps you to configure bulk link creation.

  • Log in to Short.cm account.

  • Go to your short URL list.

  • Click "Bulk Create." bulk-create

  • Choose File — Make a copy. make-copy

  • Insert your Secret key and a Domain. secret-key

  • Import a document or paste links manually. In case you want to import a document:

    1. Save a file as .csv.

    2. Upload. import-file

    3. Append to a current sheet. append

  • Create short links. create-links-in-bul

Now all your newly created short links are on the dashboard.
