Here are 5 free Excel to CSV converter websites. These are some really simple options for converting XLSX and XLS format Excel files to CSV files. You need to upload XLSX/XLS file from PC and then you can get the output in CSV format. Some of these Excel to CSV converters also let you upload multiple files and convert them.
There are some very interesting features that you will like. For example, you can convert 2 files together, upload files from Google Drive, convert an online Excel file, save the output to Dropbox or Google Drive, get download links to output CSV files in your email, etc.
So, let’s start with first online Excel CSV converter present here.
Convertio is my most favorite Excel to CSV converter website in this list. The reason is very simple. In its free plan, it lets you upload multiple Excel files and then converts 2 files at once. Also, there are four ways to upload input files: From PC, Google Drive, online Excel file, or Dropbox. You can add XLSX as well as XLS files as input and get the output. Also, the total size limit for input files is up to 100 MB, which I guess is sufficient.
Once the output CSV files are generated, you can save all those files in one go to your PC because the output is provided in a zip archive. If you want, the output can also be saved to Dropbox or Google Drive, which is another useful feature of this website.
This website also doesn’t store your files forever. All the files are deleted from the servers after 1 day.

My second preferred website for Excel to CSV conversion is Zamzar. It is actually an all in one image converter, document converter, and audio-video converter website. Tons of formats are supported by this website and XLSX and XLS are one of those formats. Like Convertio, it also lets you add XLS and XLSX files for conversion.
Unlike other Excel to CSV converter websites, it doesn’t let you save the output to PC directly. Instead, you need to enter the email address where download links are sent to you. This is also good as you don’t have to wait for the conversion process. Once the files are converted, you will receive separate links for output CSV files.
The free plan (without sign up) of this website helps to upload 5 Excel files at a time. The total size of input files should not be greater than 50 MB. The file size limit is a bit low. But still, the website is handy as it gives good results. You also don’t have to worry about the uploaded and downloaded files as it removes them automatically after 1 day from its servers.

An output file can be saved maximum 5 number of times and then it is deleted from its server. Even if you haven’t downloaded the files, it will remove them automatically after 24 hours.
Aconvert.com catches my attention because of its interface and the feature to convert XLSX as well as XLS format files. Only one file can be added at a time to convert to CSV format but a meaningful output is provided by it. You can upload an XLSX or XLS file with maximum 40 MB size, which is good enough.

Only one file at a time can be uploaded and converted at once but the result comes as expected. The file size limit is not mentioned on the website but I easily converted a 6 MB Excel file. Also, the conversion speed is good. The output is provided in a zip archive.
Apart from Excel to CSV conversion, it supports other formats also. You can use it to convert DOCX, DOC, PDF, DWG, DXF, BMP, JPG, and other format files.
Your converted files are deleted automatically once 24 hours are passed.
