I am trying to get the ID of the products and variant to create a mini excel spreadsheet.  Is there anyway to grab these products IDs from the bulk editor?  How do I do it?

Hi, Charles!

I am not sure if you are open to an app suggestion, but if you are - use the Excelify app to export your products and variants data to Excel - that will include also ID and Variant ID fields.

You can use shopify product id to read json and get product is and sku using below code : 

<?php 
 
ini_set('max_execution_time', 0); // for infinite time of execution 
 
for($i= 1 ;$i<26; $i++){
$pageurl = 'https://apikey:password@your-store.myshopify.com/admin/products.json?limit=250&page='.$i;
$data = json_decode(file_get_contents( $pageurl),true);
if(!empty($data['products'])){
foreach($data['products'] as $product){
$csv_data[] =array(
'Product ID '=>$product['id'],
'Sku'=>$product['variants'][0]['sku']
);
}
}
 }
if(!empty($csv_data)){
outputCsv('get-products-id.csv', $csv_data);
}
 
function outputCsv($fileName, $assocDataArray)
{
    ob_clean();
    header('Pragma: public');
    header('Expires: 0');
    header('Cache-Control: must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0');
    header('Cache-Control: private', false);
    header('Content-Type: text/csv');
    header('Content-Disposition: attachment;filename=' . $fileName);    
    if(isset($assocDataArray['0'])){
        $fp = fopen('php://output', 'w');
        fputcsv($fp, array_keys($assocDataArray['0']));
        foreach($assocDataArray AS $values){
            fputcsv($fp, $values);
        }
        fclose($fp);
    }
    ob_flush();
}  
?>

I am thinking to get around this issue as well. Basically, all I want is to include the product id and variant id of the products from the regular Shopify product export feature. And we are not going to use Excelify so that means I have to depend on the Shopify product export. It looks like a very straightforward request that Shopify product export should already have. Is there any free app that can include the product id and variant or maybe some other way within Shopify itself?

I just used EZ Exporter under the 7-day trial & it pulls down the 2 columns you mentioned in under 5 minutes for 210 products.  Mine is just a quick fix, but it fits the bill.  Has integration options if this is useful to you.  Cheers, M

I'd like to use this code, and I understand I need to copy and paste it and update the API key. My question is, where do I copy and paste it TO? Thanks

Thanks for the code above, it worked for me with some modification.    If you have a webserver with php installed, you run the php from there.

My main modification to the script above is getting all the variants instead of the first variant.

$fn1 = 'db/products_id.csv'; // output file
if (file_exists($fn1)) {
rename($fn1, rtrim($fn1, ".csv") . date("ymdHi") . ".csv") ; // rename file
}
ini_set('max_execution_time', 30000); // 0 for infinite time of execution
$m = NULL ; // counter
$api_key = 'yourkey' ;
$pw = 'your_password' ;
$store = 'storename' ;
$n_per_page = 250; // number of item per page
for($i= 1 ; $i< 25; $i++){ // number of pages
$pageurl = 'https://' . $api_key . ':' . $pw . '@' . $store . '.myshopify.com/admin/products.json?limit=' . $n_per_page . '&page='.$i;
$data = json_decode(file_get_contents( $pageurl),true);
echo count($data['products']) . ' data size<br>';
if(!empty($data['products'])){
foreach($data['products'] as $product){
foreach($product['variants'] as $variant){
$csv_data[] = array('Product_ID'=>$product['id'],
'Variant_ID'=>$variant['id'],
'Sku'=>$variant['sku']);
++$m;
}
}
}
}
if(!empty($csv_data)){
$fh1 = fopen($fn1, "w") or die("Unable to open file! L#". __LINE__ . " " . $fn1);
// $fh1 = fopen('php://output', 'w');
fputcsv($fh1, array_keys($csv_data['0']));
foreach($csv_data as $row){
fputcsv($fh1, $row);
}
fclose($fh1);
}

echo 'Number of Product Exported = ' . $m . '<br>' ;

I found this link which was easy to implement, free and provided what was required: https://support.rechargepayments.com/hc/en-us/articles/360009746154-Finding-and-exporting-Shopify-va....  In case the article is taken down at some stage here are the key details.  My URL ended up looking like this https://shopname.myshopify.com/admin/variants.json?fields=id,product-id,title&limit=250&page=6 as I had 6 pages worth of product variants.

Using the JSON URL in Shopify to find variant IDs

Start by adding /admin/variants in your Address Bar following your Shopify URL when logged into your Shopify Dashboard. It should look like this:

https://examplerechargestore.myshopify.com/admin/variants

Add .json to the end of the URL following variants:

https://examplerechargestore.myshopify.com/admin/variants.json

Once the URL is loaded, you should see variant data populated in JSON format on the next screen.  


Modifying JSON URL for more options

You can modify it by adding ?fields=id,product-id,title to show you only the variant ID, product ID, and variant title:

https://examplerechargestore.myshopify.com/admin/variants.json?fields=id,product-id,title

You can modify it further by adding &limit=250 to make sure the view presents all products in your catalog:

https://examplerechargestore.myshopify.com/admin/variants.json?fields=id,product-id,title&limit=49

If you have more than 49 variants, you will need to append page designations such as &page=2 until all products are accounted for in the JSON view. This is based on Shopify's API limit.


Copying and exporting JSON data

Once all variant information is in view, you can copy and paste the JSON data into a free online JSON to CSV converter tool such as JSON to CSV Converter. This will aggregate the data and provide a CSV file with the information organized in columns. You'll need to get the product titles separately and map them to the correct row in the CSV file using the product ID column.


Alternate method - Finding the variant ID using the cart.js 

Alternatively, when the product is added to the cart, you can find the variant ID by adding .js to the end of the cart page URL.

The URL would then look like this: www.website.com/cart.js. 

When .js is added at the end of the cart page URL it automatically opens a new window with line-item properties of the product currently in the cart. Variant iD can then be filtered out of all the line item properties present on that page.
