I have a service that contains a list of points with some meta data and I would like to export this to a csv file. I remember doing this some months ago and it worked well, but now I can't find the method (or plugin?) that I used.

Has anyone done something similar and know how to export data from a WFS service to a CSV file using QGIS?

Should be same as here: Get list of coordinates for points in a layer?

select "Save As...", choose "Comma Separated Value", and in the "Layers" part of the "OGR creation options", type "GEOMETRY=AS_XY" or "GEOMETRY=AS_XYZ"
