Exporting products from a WooCommerce store to a CSV file becomes necessary at one point in time or another for multiple reasons. Exporting products to a CSV file is necessary if you want to migrate your products to another WooCommerce store in an efficient way. Exporting to CSV files can also be used to keep a backup of the products and the product data. And also, the exporting products of your WooCommerce store into a CSV file allows you to bulk edit the products in the store and then import the products back to the store to reflect the changes.
WooCommerce by default does provide the provision to import and export product data but has limitations. But, you can easily export all the products and product types (simple, variable, grouped, and external) in your WooCommerce store to a CSV file using a WooCommerce product export extension.
