Exporting products

You can export your products to a .csv file if you want to create a backup, move your existing products to a new Shopify store, or edit your products in bulk using a spreadsheet. Any changes you make to the products in your product .csv file appear in your store's Product List if you import your product .csv file into your Shopify admin.


The easiest way to edit multiple products or product variants simultaneously is to use the bulk editor in your Shopify admin.

To export your products:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Products (or press G P P):



    If there are specific products you want to export, then you can search and filter products to select many products for export, and click the checkboxes to make your selections.

  2. Click the Export button in the page header.

  3. From the dialog box, choose the products you want to export:

    • The current page of products
    • All products
    • Products you have selected
    • Products that match your search
      New export 2
  4. Select which type of CSV file you would like:

    • CSV file for Excel, Numbers, or another spreadsheet program. Use this format if you plan to use a spreadsheet program with your product CSV file.
    • Plain CSV file. Use this format if you plan to use a plain-text editor with your product CSV file.
  5. Click Export products .

    An email is sent to you containing a secure download link. Click the link to retrieve your product CSV file. You can open it in any spreadsheet program.


Sorting your CSV file in a spreadsheet program can cause product variants or image URLs to become disassociated. Importing a CSV file that has been sorted may overwrite your existing products with bad data, which cannot be recovered.
