Steps to Export Products with Images using a CSV file
By default, the WordPress Export tool does not export the product images and the products in your WooCommerce. This would require you to include the images manually if you are using the export file to import to another store. If you have several products in your store, manually updating each product is not a practical solution.
This is where you need to use a plugin to assist you with that. Below we have explained the steps to export products with images in detail using a product export plugin.
