Best Solutions For Magento 2 Export Orders: The Top Three!

by admin

Magento 2 export orders are an important feature to backup or transfer your order data to a third party quickly and easily.

Many Magento 2 store owners use ERP, CRM, and other systems to manage their businesses more effectively. And to do it, you need to connect your admin panel with these platforms.

However, default Magento doesn’t have built-in options to migrate order data from the admin panel.

This is when you need the Magento 2 exporting orders feature to export order data and import them to 3rd party platforms.

Thus, we wrote this article to walk you through 3 ways to export orders from your Magento store into a CSV file, starting from the easiest way of using the Magento backend to a more advanced solution of using script and extension.

Magento 2 Export Orders From Backend

Of the three exporting order data solutions in this blog, this is the most simple way to export all order data.

In your Magento store backend, navigate to Sales > Orders.



In the Orders panel, you should see the following columns by default:

  • ID
  • Purchase Point
  • Purchase Date
  • Bill-to Name
  • Ship-to Name
  • Grand Total (Base)
  • Grand Total (Purchased)
  • Status
  • Action
  • Allocated sources
  • Braintree Transaction Source

Here, click on the Export drop-down, choose CSV, and click the Export button to export orders data into a CSV file.


Magento 2 Export Orders With Custom Data

Sometimes, you need to look for specific order data. For example, you need the address data to share with your shipping provider.

But having thousands of orders makes it difficult to do so.

Obviously, manually going through all order details is not easy because there is so much unnecessary order-related information along with the data you are looking for.

Magento backend doesn’t support you to export custom order data from the backend.

This is when you need to use some sort of script or code to export the exact order data you need.

First, you need to use the below code to create an “orderexport.php” php script.

ini_set('display_errors', 1);

try {
    $orders = Mage::getModel('sales/order')->getCollection()
        ->setOrder('created_at', 'desc')
        ->setPageSize(10); //export data from last give orders id  to 10 ex.
    $fp = f0pen(Mage::getBaseDir() . "/orderexport.csv", "w+");
    $csvHeader = array('Order ID', 'Customer Email', 'Customer First Name', 'Customer Last Name'); //CSV Header title
    fputcsv($fp, $csvHeader, ","); //save sequence as give csv header title add more to add both side.
    foreach ($orders as $order) {
        fputcsv($fp, array(
            //save sequence as give csv header title add more to add both side.
    echo 'orderexport.csv Successfully created.';

}catch (\Exception $e){
    echo $e->getMessage();

Then you place the script file in the root server of your Magento store and run it by hitting file URL (

And that’s all. Once the successful script runs, it will automatically export order data into a CSV file with specified field data.

The “orderexport.csv” can be found in the root folder of your hosting.
