In the Processing toolbox there is tool "convert format" that should allow convert from/to different data types.

I tested (and 2.4 and master) converting TO shapefile different data type as inputs and the result are seldom right (if any).

My test cases:

+) Postgis to shape. Windows: QGIS freezes, Linux: the converted layer is not the input one, but another (even NOT in the QGIS project) available in the same database/connection

+) Similar results if the input layer is a WFS layer

+) Similar results if the input layer is Spatialite, minus the freeze under Windows

+) with GPX as input it gives as error
