This post covers how to export your Members List to CSV. We’ll cover the default columns included in the export, as well as a method to add additional user data to the file.


Access the Members List Export

The “Export to CSV” feature of Paid Memberships Pro is located on the Memberships > Members List admin page. Here you will see your full Members List, which can be filtered based on several features, including Membership Level, Status, or via search. The exported CSV file is based on the active filter in the current view. If you would like to add additional data to this admin page or allow for more detailed filtering, see:


Default Fields Included in the Members List Export

The basic CSV export will include these fields:

  • id
  • username
  • firstname
  • lastname
  • email
  • billing firstname
  • billing lastname
  • address1

  • address2
  • city
  • state
  • zipcode
  • country
  • phone
  • membership
  • initial payment

  • fee
  • term
  • discount_code_id
  • discount_code
  • joined
  • expires


Adding Additional Data to the Export

There are a few methods to add data to your CSV export.

The easiest method applies to fields that are created via the Register Helper Add On. The code that adds your additional fields will simply need to be updated with attribute memberslistcsv => true. See detailed information on adding fields via Register Helper here.

If you need to add fields that were not created via Register Helper, you will need a custom function that uses the hook: pmpro_members_list_csv_extra_columns . For example, the code recipe below demonstrates how to add fields from the wp_users or wp_usermeta tables as well as fields added via BuddyPress. There may be other custom tables you need to pull in data from, in which case you’d need to access the user information in another way (dependent on the plugin you are trying to interact with).


The Code Recipe

This code recipe requires a PMPro Plus Account or higher.

The export is great. Is there a way to import it? We had an issue with the WP database and had to restore to an earlier period. We have an export csv of the member list in pmpro and want to re-0import the membership status from the csv? Is it possible?

Is there a way to programatically export the user lists? Say I have three new signups, can we set a job to run to export only these new users to the CSV to a path on the server? The idea is to automate the export for accounts that are new or undergo a change, in info or membership level, for integration with another system which can take action based on the changes.

I’m wondering,

Is there a way to view the users whose login have expired and also export to CSV?

or is there a plugin I’d have to install?

> login have expired

WP and PMPro don’t expire “logins”, but maybe you mean memberships. You can export a list of expired members by going to Memberships -> Members List, then choosing “Expired Members” or “Old Members” (old members includes members who cancelled vs just expired) and then clicking the export to CSV button.

Hope this helps.

Tried to export cancelled members in order to send them a targeted email and all the fields were blank except “joined.” Is this related to the new GDPR requirements or is this an error? If on purpose, is there a way around it? Thank you.

I replied to your comment on another post, but basically we didn’t change the members list export. Something else might be going on. If you are trying to export a deleted/forgotten user then a lot of data will be missing, and that is intentional. You probably don’t want to email those users.
