Product export special character bug

When exporting products to a csv from all products, special characters in the description are exported as invalid characters. Example, in my body description I have ™ , but shopify exports this character as â„¢ 

It also adds invalid characters such as Â which has no meaning. Please shopify team fix this for all the special characters. 


This is an accepted solution.

Hey @mmaclub,

This is probably due to the character set/encoding setting of the application you're using to open the CSV file.  You'd want to use Unicode (UTF-8) for the character set.

Spreadsheet apps such as Google Sheets already defaults to UTF-8.  If you use Excel on Windows, you can try the steps mentioned here.
