WooCommerce is undoubtedly among one of the best plugins present in WordPress plugin repository till the date. It has very unique features, set of options and payment gateways integrated and so on. One can easily setup his store within 5 to 10 minutes using WooCommerce plugin. Apart from all these points, the best feature about WooCommerce is it is absolutely free. ( Afterall, we all like free stuff with more features 😉 )
Although WooCommerce have all these advantages, one will surely think twice before using WooCommerce for his WordPress site. The reason is though WooCommerce is free, it lacks some very basic set of functionality. There is a huge set of add-ons present in WooCommerce official store to compensate those missing features, but customers have to pay for those features and whether one will agree or not these add-ons are quite expensive. You may rise the question that, one can surely spend on something from which he is earning. But to invest on something you have to earn something first ! ( Don’t you think so 🙂 )
Among set of some missing features in WooCommerce, one of the very important feature is Exporting Orders from WooCommerce in csv. For one who is running an online store, this feature is very obvious and required. I look around and surf the internet to a good extent to find if there is any plugin or script available for exporting the WooCommerce orders, but sadly nothing great was found by me. Some plugins are there but those are paid and that too above USD 35. For such a basic feature this is quite high cost.
I decided that I can easily build a basic plugin for exporting orders from WooCommerce store. So I started building the plugin and finished the same within one week, after testing it for some days I decided to upload it to the WordPress plugin repository for absolutely free of cost. Plugin has been named as WooCommerce Simply Order Export.
WooCommerce Simply Order Export gives the user freedom to export the orders in csv format. This plugin adds one more setting tab to WooCommerce setting page named as “Order Export”. Plugin has some options which gives you flexibility of choosing which fields to export in csv. You can simply check those fields.
WooCommerce Simply Order Export plugin exports the order for certain duration, you have to choose start date and end date, so it will export orders within that duration including start date and end date.
This plugin exports customer name, products details ( Including quantity, product name and variation details ), amount paid for order, email of customer and order status. Product details will be like, if you sell T-shirts which has variation attributes size and color. Then it will export product details as 2 Puma T-Shirts ( Size: M, Color: Red ), where 2 is quantity of that particular product.
This plugin is flexible, code is according WordPress codex guideline, easily customizable and absolutely free. So what are you waiing for ! Just download it and give it a shot, but yes don’t forget to rate it if you like it 🙂
