Magento 2 Orders Import and Export Functionality

In general, Import and Export functionality in Magento 2 allows you to transfer any amount of data, and backup important information.

Magento 2 Orders Export

The export functionality is available in the 2d version of the eCommerce platform out-of-the-box. You can transfer order data to either .csv or .xml formates.

Supported Data Formats

The .csv format keeps plain text as a series of values separated by commas. To open and read this format, use any simple text editor. To open an.xml file type, you may use a text editor, your browser, Excel, or any XML Viewer.

Hence, the .csv format is simpler to work with and is more user-friendly, while data in a .xml format lets you store a bigger amount of information, such as images, graphs, etc.

Magento 2 Orders Import

Unfortunately, Magento doesn't have the 'Order Import' feature by default.

You can import Magento 1 orders to Magento 2 using the official data migration tool by Magento. In all other cases (for example, when importing orders from Magento 1.8 to 1.9 or from Magento 2.0 to Magento 2.1), you need to use a third-party solution.
