Export orders to a CSV file
You can export a comma-separated values (CSV) spreadsheet of your orders from the Orders page of your Shopify admin to see a broad overview of your complete order information.
You can export orders along with their transaction histories or you can export only the transaction histories of your orders. The transaction histories that are included in your CSV file include the captured payments data only. Authorization data is not included in your exported transaction histories.
From the Orders page, click Export.
In the Export orders window:
Select the option for the orders that you want to export. For example, if you want to export your orders by date, then click Export orders by date and set the start and end dates for the orders that you want to export.
Under Export as, select a file format.
If you want to download all information about your orders, then click Export orders. If you want to download your transaction information only, then click Export transaction histories.
You'll have one of the following scenarios when you're trying to export orders:
- When you export up to one full page of orders (up to 50 orders), the CSV file is downloaded by your browser.
- When you export more than one page of orders (51 or more orders), the CSV file is emailed to you and the Shopify store owner.
- If the export fails, then you'll receive an email with this information.

First Name,Last Name,Email,Company,Address1).
- The list of tags must be wrapped in quotation marks (for example,
- Tags are not case sensitive.
