  • Use Excel or CSV files to import, export or update your store data: Products, Collections, Customers, Discounts, Orders, Pages, Blogs, Redirects, Metafields.
  • Import and Export custom formats like Google Shopping, Amazon, SAP, AoB, migrate from other platforms.
  • Schedule and auto-repeat imports and exports.

This app is for you if you manage Shopify store data, you like precision, and you need to control the outcomes of
your work. Beneficial is if you know how to use Excel (or similar spreadsheets apps), or at least are willing to
learn those things.

Have you maxed out Shopify CSV file import and export capabilities?

If you have used Shopify CSV export and import feature, then this is your next level tool. If you feel like CSV
files and manual data entry limit you in any way - it is very likely that you will find your solution here.

Excelify.io gives you great control over your store data

  1. Feed data to your store from any of your data sources.

  2. Update your existing store data by individual fields, without having to re-import

  3. Copy your store data to your other stores with just one Excel file.

  4. Schedule and auto-repeat your imports or exports.

You import the same structure Excel file as you export.

Download this Excel file
and use it as an example and as a template.

The app is updating your Store data on Shopify database, so you own your data at all times. Even after
you uninstall the app.

Just this one feature to import Collections in bulk will save you days of manual work

We know you spend too much time on creating and updating your Collections of products. You might be even paying
somebody to do that for you, and then re-check it yourself anyway, because of potential errors.

If you use Excelify.io for just this one thing - you have bought your precious time and sanity back. You will be
able to import and export collections yourself, if you decide to do so; and have a clear overview - what's inside
each of those collections by doing an export.

But this app does so much more than that

Whatever fields you see in your Shopify Admin, you are able to export and import them with Excelify.io.
You can bulk-update any of those fields individually or all together.

Orders, baby!

Yes, you can export and import Orders now, and you can copy them from one store to another with the same
export/import file.

Also, you can update Orders by two methods - some of the fields using the true UPDATE of the existing order, and any other fields, using the REPLACE Command.

Metafields still drive you crazy?

Having Metafields as just additional columns along with items they are attached to, makes your data whole, and you
can edit, add or delete them just as any other field values.

Those include also Variant Metafields.

SEO metadata is also there.

File formats that can be handled

Load enormously large volumes of data

The upload file size limit is 2 GB. Excel files are compressed - you will never hit this limit. If you import
CSV files - you can zip that CSV file and upload the zip file. Such file can hold several million rows.

Import from locations

  • Upload the files directly into the App

  • Web link to the file

  • FTP

  • Dropbox

  • Google Drive

  • Google Sheets

Export to locations

  • Download file directly

  • FTP

Schedule and repeat your imports and exports

  • Schedule exports to use as store backups or data snapshots, done at regular intervals.

  • Schedule the import or export to run later, repeat them automatically.

  • Setup the import to be done just in time for your campaign.

  • Setup the repeated automated import from FTP server, Dropbox, Google Drive, or Google Sheets link.

  • Setup the repeated automated export to directly downloadable file or to your FTP server directory.

  • For example: Schedule to update sale price on every Monday and put it back on Wednesday, or any other

Your store language is not plain English?

If you tried to import products or customers with CSV files in other language with special language encoding, you
know the pain. With Excel files your data will be imported correctly.

Some of additional results you can get with this same app:

Copy your whole store to another

All your exported store contents fit into that one exported Excel file. You can easily copy your store by just
importing that same exported Excel file to your other store.

Whichever plan you choose, you have one additional store included in the same price. Send your both store URLs to
our Support, and we will put them on the same plan.

See the tutorial: How
To Clone Your Shopify Store?

You are in charge!

  • Specify, what data you want to export.

  • Track the progress - see the time it takes to finish any of your jobs, and how many items were created, updated
    or failed.

  • Cancel the process any time if you see you messed up something.

  • See detailed result for each item by downloading the file after the import has finished.

  • Backup your whole store by doing full export.

Brilliant app and fantastic/instant support from their very helpful support team. Highly recommended.


If I could give this app and this team an additional five stars I absolutely would. After finding the app I needed some guidance to use it configuring my SKUs which were pretty tricky. I contacted customer support through the chat feature (which was awesome!). Jelena was INCREDIBLY kind and patient and insured we found a workaround that still let me use all of the great features of this app. I'll be a customer for life with an experience like this one!


This app saved my marriage.


UPDATE 7/4/2018: I found yet another use for this fantastic app: Landing Pages. I created a landing page template and made a set of pages. I then exported, did find/replace to change some keywords, imported. Entire nothing set of Landing Pages in just a few minutes.

Wow! What an incredibly useful and well-designed app. It is indispensable for managing store data.

I originally installed the app because it made it possible for me to create a set of discount codes tied to variants and associate the codes with product metafields. Worked great and saved me countless hours. Frankly, without this app, I would have had to bag the idea.

I just used the app again, for a use I had not contemplated. I decided to modify some of my product titles to apply a new naming convention with an eye toward SEO. I exported the collection, made the edits, and imported. So much quicker than scrolling through products and changing one at a time.

Chat support is awesome. The app has a great UX and lots of great help resources. The issue I had was of my own making but support got me back on track very quickly.


This is very powerful editor.
Power comes with responsibility: read the tutorials and test with small data.
After understanding how this thing works, much time is saved.
Now I handily manage my 7000+ SKUs and their data.


Great app works well. What sets this app apart is its lower price; which includes a second store. Very powerful features included in this app. Great work from Excelify creating this app. An excellent support team is ready and willing to assist. Recommended for all.



awesome app! the support is even better. I was assisted very fast and have been waiting so long to get my products on my site. This app makes it a breeze! I never write reviews but this one deserves it for sure! get this app now!


this app literally saved me thousands of dollars and months of work. im definitely a long term customer


Incredibly useful app for accessing fields the standard import/export doesn't touch. The developers are super timely and knowledgable. The support chat feature is great. I'd give ten stars if I could.


Great tools for exporting importing products! Very useful
