How to Export Orders and Transactions in Shopify

If you need to gain some long-term insight on order patterns– perhaps because you need to consolidate your orders for taxation purposes, or because you are attempting to analyze orders as a data set– you can easily do so by exporting your orders into a CSV file, which is typically opened and manipulated in Excel.

It is a simple way to succinctly and quickly view all order information over a set period of time.

Step #1: From your Shopify store admin “Dashboard” navigate to the “Orders” section on the left-hand side of your screen.
Note: If necessary, filter orders for specific customer or date based information.

Step #2: Select the order numbers you need to export

Step #3: Next, click the “Export” button in the upper left-hand corner.

Step #4: Select the file time you need to export. If you have Excel– always choose the first option, CSV

Step #5: Do one of two things

a) Export Orders – Downloads complete order history

b) Export Transaction Histories – Exports only the transaction details that you have selected.

Step #6: Then your CSV file will automatically be downloaded on your local storage.

You can also Export orders by date
Step #1: Click the “Export orders by date” option

Step #2: Set the start and end date that you wish to analyze

Select the type of file you want to export
Step #3: Select one of either of the two options:

a) Export Orders – Downloads complete order history

Step #4: Then, you will receive an email that gives you the ability to review the collected information.
