  • In History, you can see for each job – how much time did it take to run it.
    For the jobs which are still running, the time shows how long it was running so far.


  • Made Shopify Export Faster.

2019, January


  • Now, when you run the “Dry Run” it will check more things about the file you import.
    It will go with importing as far as possible, but not send any data to Shopify.




  • The following changes are made to Shopify Discounts:
    • Import and Export the “Minimum Number Of Items” – to apply the discount code for certain minimum quantity of ordered items.
    • Fixed the “Code: must be unique” issue when importing Discounts.
    • When importing Discounts – it will not pre-load existing Discounts anymore, so the import of Discounts will be faster in most cases because you will not have to wait for it to pre-load existing ones.

  • Now when you export Product Images from Shopify, the Image Alt Text column will be there always and the export and import of product image alt texts works super fast now.


  • You can filter Products by Vendor in finer detail:
    • Vendor equals any of several vendors, split by comma
    • Vendor not equal to any of several vendors, split by comma


  • When clicking the “History & Schedule” button, you can see the whole history of your imports and exports, their statuses.
    You can also download all your historically imported and exported files and you can cancel the scheduled jobs from there, too.


  • There is a new column “Image Alt Text” in Smart Collections and Custom Collections sheets now to export Image Alt Text for your Collections.

  • When exporting Products, the export contains the URL column, which takes to the Product page.
  • Now you can bulk update, delete, and do all the other things to Products by just knowing its SKU number. No need for ID or Handle by using the column “Variant SKU”.


2018, January




  • Fixed import errors like:
    • Field [metafields.key]: must be unique within this namespace on this resource – was happening because importing Metafield update, giving Metafield name in different small-BIG letters than already exists.
    • product_id prefix_option is missing – was happening when retrying to import product because Shopify didn’t download some images


  • When exporting Customers, you can filter by Customer registration date interval.


  • You can filter Shopify Products by many titles – put them in filter split by , (comma), and it will export only products that contain any of those titles.


2017, December


  • Added Shopify Pages export and import with Excel.


  • In order to prevent further damage of Product images, when importing non-existing images, app will stop as soon as at least one product image will not be possible to download.


  • You can force the import to not check if such items already exist – this will speed up the import even more.
  • You can export your Shopify Products to Google Shopping Data Feed file.

2017, November


  • You can filter export of Products by Handle, Title, Vendor, Type, and Tags, and you can filter Orders export by date.


  • Now you can choose more finer details what data to export for each item, so that you don’t have to delete unneeded columns and rows when updating data.


  • If Shopify will not be able to import all Product images, app will issue warning about that in Import Results file “Import Comment” column.


  • Product variant reordering can now be done by changing the “Variant Position” number and importing that column in as update.


  • When exporting, all the base rows like Title, Vendor, Tags, etc. are filled also for duplicated rows, so that you can filter and group them easier in Excel.


  • Metafields Import
    • Speed: Metafields import speed doesn’t depend on Metafield count anymore. Even for 100 Metafields per item, it will import as quickly as with no Metafields.
    • Delete: You can delete Metafields for items just by clearing values in that Metafield column, and importing.
    • Set type: Metafield can have “string” or “integer” type, which is now auto-detected from Excel cell type, and set correctly when you do the import.


  • Import speed dramatically improved
