Whenever you want to export Shopify data, you can always opt to use the platform's inbuilt features. But as it usually goes with the auxiliary functionality, it has both pros and cons. Let’s see them in detail.
On the positive side, you will have the possibility to export Shopify data from the most popular categories like Orders, Products, and Customers manually and even have some preselection options. You can choose to export all data from the category, data from the current page, or select each item for export manually. Depending on the type of data, additional filters are available, for example, you can export Orders by date.
If you need your data for reporting or analysis, you can extract information from some subcategories foreseen by the Shopify platform. For example, the Products
data type contains details about the Gift
cards and Inventory items
. Each of them can be exported as a CSV file. Read how to export products here
Similarly, the Orders
section includes such subcategories as Abandoned checkouts
that are also available for export. The detailed how-to instruction can be found here
