How to export Shopify sales by state
Reporting & Analysis
To separate your Shopify sales by state for tax purposes, you have a few options. First, if you have a Shopify plan or higher (US$79 per month), you can create sales reports directly on Shopify. Alternatively, you can manually export data from Shopify and filter it by state in Google Sheets or Excel. Another option is to use Airboxr, which offers a 'Customers by Location' Hop to automatically pull data on customers by location into Google Sheets. This can save you time and effort in preparing your sales tax by state.
If you’re running a Shopify store and have to prepare financial documents for quarterly taxes, you’ll need to know how to separate your Shopify sales by state. You need a Shopify plan or higher (US$79 per month) to be able to create sales reports on Shopify; but if you don’t, you can still get the data you need through a more manual process. You can also use Airboxr to automatically pull data on customers by location directly into your Google Sheet, using Hops.
Today, we’ll show you a few ways you can separate Shopify sales by location, so that you can prepare your sales tax by state:
Export Shopify data into a CSV file and clean it in Google Sheets or Excel

Set the date range you want.
Export the sales report to CSV; within the Export window, click “Full Report” to get all the metrics.
Use Google Sheets or Excel to filter and sort the sales in the CSV file by state. Use column M (Shipping Region).
