Bulk Category Import / Export 5 5 27 27
Product is a bit raw but my goodness this man knows how to support. Initially the product did not work, primarily due to my localhost setup. Mailed Scott and replied in 2 minutes. he was like a dog with a bone .... teamviewed and fixed the issue. Could do with more documentation or explanation on the module but overall product and support is 5* August 18, 2011
Good extension which does what it is supposed to. Scott knows his product, and is quick to respond, and i would happily buy more from him in the future. Scott will encourage you to use OpenOffice Calc rather than Excel, which I did do, although ultimately, I found no issue at all with Excel and am now back using it with no issues. I am uploading big category pages, with HTML code in the description column near the excel cell limit of 32,000 characters and Scott's uploader handles these with no problem. I had a problem in that certain categories wouldn't upload, but this turned out to be caused by certain character types [in my case "°C"] in the description column [Scott suggested UTF-8 format might work, although I didn't try] August 10, 2011
Very good extension and very needed. Support is also very very good, it only took Scott 1 min to reply to my first email. July 20, 2011
Worked for me (on magento 1.5.0.1), although the instructions are not as good as they could be. If you're exporting from one store and into another, make sure you pay attention to the filenames. The exported file will be called 'export_bulk_categories.csv', but the import profile wants a file named 'import_bulk_categories.csv'. So make sure to rename it. Also, for my first successful import, the profile ran and reported that it was successful, but then no categories showed in my store. I had to go back to the the import_bulk_categories.csv and change the root_id to match the actual root category id in my new store. April 18, 2011
absolutely worthless extensions: 1. doesn't export complete categories structure 2. doesn't import modified categories even developer couldn't get his own extension working after granted access to store admin and tried to force us to grant full access to server. This is not possible. Now refuses to refund for his useless extension - hands off!! March 23, 2011
Works! easy & easy install...support is excellent....Thanks! Scott March 9, 2011
I'd buy it if this is not $45.99/ license March 3, 2011

Hi, we are planning to do export/import from Magento 1.7.2 to 1.8 and I was wondering if URL keys of the category will be imported as well.

Images Not Showing Up

After the import, the images are not showing up. They were placed in media/import/ before import and they are imported and shows up in media/catalog/products/ but not on frontend.
