To export variable products in WooCommerce, you can use the default product exporter or a plugin like WP All Export. By using WP All Export, you gain flexibility and control over the exported data, allowing you to build your export file precisely as you need it and in the file format that you need. You can also use custom code to modify the exported data on the fly.
Specifically, WP All Export allows the following:
- Set up exports with a few clicks containing all your products and variations.
- Use filters to decide which variable products to export selectively.
- Automate your exports to run automatically.
- Use custom PHP code to modify the exported data on the fly.
- Create custom export fields dynamically.
With WP All Export capabilities, you will be able to export variable products from your WooCommerce site quickly and without much hassle.
Steps to Export Variable Products in WooCommerce
Here are the steps you need to follow to export variable products in WooCommerce:
- Go to All Export › New Export and create a new export process.
- Choose WooCommerce Products from the dropdown list.
- Set up your export as needed and run it.
- Download the exported variable products from WooCommerce.
In the export settings, you can also change the export file format to export variable products in an XML or Excel file. Out of the box, CSV exports are generated.

What to Expect When You Export Variable Products?
You can export all WooCommerce products, including all their data, such as custom fields, attributes, categories, tags, and so on. It's possible to export both parent and variable products together, but you can also choose to export only product variations or only parent products.
Out of the box, you will export both parent products along with their variations.
The export process is fairly simple, and it will provide you with a ready-to-go export file that contains all of your chosen export columns. There are further settings and configurations to help you fully control how the variable product data is exported.
