In my opinion, you can not export products from Magento 2 and directly import into Magento 1.x.

Reason: Magento 2 puts all custom attribute values under 1 column (additional_attributes) and saves attribute values in following format:


While in Magento 1.x, each attribute is placed in individual column in csv file.

So you will need to add some efforts to convert Magento 2.x compatible csv file to Magento 1.x compatible format.

Please let me know if you have any other query.

  • yes this is the biggest problem we are facing because we have more than 40,000 products and lots of attributes also.I did a fresh installation again.Can you tell me the steps what I should do to get out this please

  • If you are developer then you can read additional_attributes Magento 2.x compatible csv programatically, explode labels and values as pair and then rewrite csv with these columns. Else it would be manual and time taking process. Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 7:49
  • is there any way that i can import directly from table to table?

  • No, there are tools which can migrate data from Magento 1.x to Magento 2.x, but for reverse case there is no tool available. Further the structure of tables has been changed in both versions, so I don't think that copying data from table to table would help. Commented Mar 9, 2017 at 11:36
