Business Directory Plugin also supports CSV exports as well. Our export documentation will walk you through the available options as well.
Business Directory Plugin also have a migration plugin that allows you to move data between sites (e.g. a staging site to a production site) while keeping all of your settings around.
Good question! The answer depends on what you’re trying to accomplish.
If you want to import initial data into the directory: Use CSV Import
