Items Supported for Automatic Restoration in Bulk

BackupMaster can automatically restore the following items in bulk:

  • Products
  • Custom collections
  • Smart collections
  • Customers
  • Themes
  • Files
  • Blogs
  • Pages

Items Supported for Viewing Only

Some items, such as Policies, Shipping Zones, and Saved Searches, can be backed up and viewed in our app but not restored directly. This is due to Shopify API restrictions that prevent updating or creating these types of items. You can view these items and restore them manually in your store.

Restoring Orders

Our development team is working on adding support to restore orders in bulk. However, due to various limits imposed by Shopify, this feature is still under development. If we manage to overcome these challenges, it will be added to our supported features. Unfortunately, we cannot provide an ETA at the moment.

Restoring Inventory Levels

To restore inventory levels:

  • Navigate to Backup Storage: Open the Inventories category.
  • Choose a Location and Version: Select the location and the version you need.
  • Download CSV: Download a CSV file with all the inventory levels.
  • Verify and Upload: Open the file, check the quantities, and upload it to Shopify using the standard import feature in Shopify Admin. For more information, check this article: Shopify Inventory CSV Import.


By following these steps, you can efficiently restore multiple items or entire categories, ensuring minimal disruption to your business operations.
