Install together with the Import Core and Import\Export Core to see the full scope of data transfer features between multiple platforms This free package has the same code and architecture as the original paid Import and Export for Magento 2 extension but with the core options only. The package can be used for manual data exporting. See the full scope of automatization features and ready-made entities available in the paid version in this demo or book a live demo with the Amasty team to get a consultation in real-time.


The paid version has Lite, Pro and Premium packages. Visit our website to discover pricing plans available. A free package is a part of the Lite version of the full Import and Export for Magento 2 extension, but without ready-made entities for migration.

What is this package for?

Export Core is a multipurpose tool for data transferring from Magento 2. The solution has nothing in common with the native Magento import and export since it has a brand new architecture and code structure. Keep in mind that a free core does not include ready-made entities (e.g. Orders, Products) but the code structure lets you develop compatibility with any entity you need.

Free version options included

This package lets you:

  • Perform manual one-time export of any entity: the extension has a separate interface that lets you extract the data you need but does not include automatization options. It means that each data transfer should be configured separately.
  • Use 2 file formats: CSV and XML formats supported in a free version.
  • Use 2 sources for data output: download export files from the admin panel or use local directories.
  • File configuration: add header row, customize entity keys and set suitable field names to meet the requirements of 3rd-party systems.
  • Automatically modify the values: use text, numeric, date or custom modifiers to change the values in the final export file (round prices, capitalize product names, etc.).
  • Filter data: export only relevant data by applying multiple filtering parameters.
  • Adjust performance settings: limit the number of parallel processes according to your server capabilities.


To install the package, run the following commands:

composer require amasty/module-export-core
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy (your locale)

See more details in the Composer User Guide.

Export Configuration & Flow

To run data migration, you need to create compatibility with the required entity. Let’s see how it works in the free version using the example of the ‘Order’ entity.

Export Configuration

Navigate to the Export tab. Here you can choose the entity to export. For instance, we can export order items.


When the required entity is chosen, proceed to the configuration.

Step 1. Configure your file

It is possible to export files in an XML or CSV format.


If you choose a CSV file, you can also add:

  • a header row;
  • merge rows into one;
  • duplicate parent entity data;
  • set delimiters for fields and entity keys;
  • define enclosure characters.

To configure file settings correctly, please explore the requirements of the platform you are going to transfer data to.

Step 2. Set the file title

Name your file. You can also set a regular expression to fill in the date automatically.


Step 3. Define output option

When the configuration is finished, you’ll be able to download a ready file right from the interface. But, in addition to this, you can send the file to the local server.


Step 4. Fields adjustment

Here you choose what data should be displayed in the file and how it must be arranged and named. The export file has a tree-structure logic: first, you need to choose the key entities to enable, and then select the subentities containing the details about the main one.

For detailed instructions on each step check this guide.


Start with the naming configuration. Customize entity keys that should be displayed in the columns.

  • Custom entity key — set the key that should be placed before the title of the main entity columns.
  • Output entity key — provide custom keys to replace the default ones in the subentities-related columns.


As we want to export order items, add the fields you need in the pop-up window.


You can remove the fields and reorder them by using the drag-and-drop functionality. Please, keep in mind that the file reproduces the order set during the configuration.


Customize column titles for each field to match the requirement of the platform you are exporting to.


Also, use modifiers to change the values if needed. You can modify texts, numbers, dates and some additional parameters. Learn more about each modifier in this section.


Last, choose additional entities to export, e.g. Orders / Order Tax / Shipment, etc. and configure them in the same way.


Step 5. Apply filtering

Select the filters to sort the data that should be placed in the file. Filter by any entity and value enabled during the fields configuration.


Once everything is configured, click the Continue button to generate the file.


Download the file. That’s it!
