EZ Exporter: Function to Strip HTML Tags is Now Available

We've recently gotten this request from one of our customers. He needed a way to export the product description of his products but without the HTML code.

Shopify's own product CSV export includes the HTML code of the product description in a field labeled "Body (HTML)." The Shopify API also only provides the HTML version of the product description.

EZ Exporter: Option to Repeat Row Based on Ordered Quantity

One of our customers needed their CSV exports formatted in a way where a separate copy of a row is created for each item ordered as required by their supplier.

We've actually gotten a similar inquiry in the past. A use case is if each item in the order needs to be shipped out separately. The CSV file can then be used to create the shipping label for each shipment.

It took us some time to decide whether to actually implement this feature as it felt too much of an edge case. But at the same, we do see ...

EZ Exporter: Transaction Data Now Available

We've recently included transaction data to EZ Exporter. In the Order data settings, you will now see additional transaction-related fields that you can include in your CSV report.

We've added these as one of our customers needed the Authorization Key included in the CSV export. Below is a list of some of the transaction data you can now include:

We hope these additional transaction data could help save you time by having them ...
