The Reasons to Export WooCommerce Products

Store owners may wish to export WooCommerce products for a variety of reasons, including to:

  • Migrate products from one store to another
  • Share product lists between related sites or businesses on an ongoing basis, possibly on a set schedule
  • Transfer product information to the Google Merchant Center
  • Bulk edit products in an efficient manner

WP All Export is designed to handle each of these tasks and any other form of WooCommerce product export.

Basic Steps to Export WooCommerce Products

  1. In the WordPress main menu, click WP All Export > New Export and choose WooCommerce Products.
  2. Select all products by default or use a simple filter interface to choose only a subset of products.
  3. Select the desired WooCommerce product fields using a drag & drop interface.
  4. Run the export and download your file.

This process allows you to perform simple product exports in seconds or to customize the process as much as you wish to fulfill more sophisticated requirements.

Filtering Your WooCommerce Product Exports

A common task for any product export is to filter the products based on various criteria.

WP All Export provides a simple interface that lets you apply filters based on any fields connected to WooCommerce products in any way, even if the fields belong to a 3rd-party add-on or plugin.

You can apply filters based on:

  • single fields based on single filter values
  • single fields based on ranges of values
  • combinations of filters using AND/OR operators
  • nested filters (akin to using parentheses to group filter conditions)
  • relative date filter criteria such as "last month" or "- 2 years"
  • custom PHP code
  • WP_Query filters

These powerful filter features are, in part, what makes WP All Export capable of handling any WooCommerce product export task.

How to Customize WooCommerce Product Export Columns

Just as WP All Export gives you great flexibility with your product export filters, you also have complete control over your export columns.

First, you can drag & drop any product fields into the column selection area, even those that have been added via a 3rd-party add-on or plugin.

You can combine multiple fields into a single new field or use custom PHP to perform any operation on any field that you want. For example, if you want to apply a price change across an entire category of products, you can export a new price field based on a calculation, then re-import that data to overwrite your old prices, all with the click of a few buttons!

Bulk Editing WooCommerce Products

Do you need to change data for a large number of WooCommerce products but want to avoid long hours of making manual data changes?

Here is what you do:

  1. Use WP All Export to export the products that you want to change into a CSV file.
  2. Modify the exported data in your favorite spreadsheet, where you can use copy-and-paste and search-and-replace features to make changes efficiently.
  3. Use WP All Import to import the modified data. Because WP All Import recognizes WP All Export data, it can automatically sync the new data with only a few clicks.

Other Product Export Capabilities

WP All Export is the most powerful data export tool in the WordPress & WooCommerce landscape. In addition to everything described so far, it can also:

  • Automatically export one product at a time to create a kind of drip-feed — excellent for keeping two disparate systems in sync.
  • Schedule batch product export runs, then use Zapier to automatically integrate the exported data with external apps
  • Automatically translate your product data into other languages using WPML
  • Export your products to different file types including CSV, Excel, and XML
  • ...and many other useful features.
