Hi. How can we help?

Exporting data

Use Lightspeed eCom's Exports tool to keep track of what's going on with your business by exporting data from your online store. For example, you can use the Exports tool to:

  • create exports of your orders, invoices, and sales to monitor your sales data;
  • export all your orders or shipments to be handled by a fulfillment group;
  • export all your products to change their prices and images and then re-import them;
  • or export tax data for tax reporting.
