This function lets users export metafields data for editing and storing.


What's new?
After the latest beta update in January 2021, we’ve opened the Import/Export feature and now everyone can have an experience with our advanced function.

  • Import/Export metafields function will require credit points to do the job.
  • All current users will be rewarded 2000 points. Each point is corresponding to one object. When you reach the limit, it’s able to purchase more with $2 per 1000 credit points.

If you have any trouble while using, don’t hesitate and contact our support team through:
