1. Export Products with Basic columns and Images

On the Matrixify app Home page “Export” section press the “New Export” button to create an export in the app.

We suggest selecting export format “Matrixify: Excel”. It will export to an Excel XLSX file which is a lot more user-friendly and easier to work with than a CSV file.
If you prefer CSV, you can select the “Matrixify: CSV” export format.

Select to export “Products” with “Basic Columns” and “Images”.
