I have some .shp files that I would like to export them to a GeoJSON format.

I can use Export > Save Feature As.. and use the Save Vector Layer.. dialog to save them.

However, I have to do that one at a time. Is there a way to batch save them?

Note that I have tried the Extract Selected Features and the Save vector features to file dialogs, however, they seem to be exporting only a few bytes of data and not the entire shape geometry and metadata.

Any ideas?

The batch-vector-layer-saver plugin did the trick.

From the README.md:

#QGIS Batch Saver Plugin This plugin allow you to save multiple vector layers using a selection of file extensions in a configurable path.
