Simple and great. What a developer, everything is simple yet extremely useful. Any issues he goes the extra mile to help. June 10, 2014
Great Product - Even Better Support The product definitely functions the way that it's supposed to. I had some issues because I configured the file poorly. I sent my request for support via email late at night and I woke up to 2 responses already. Within a few hours the issue was resolved and it worked. Not only is the product great but Scott's support on top of it was refreshing because in software support it's normally a pretty annoyingly long process. That's not the case with this extension. You'd be crazy not to buy from Scott if you need this functionality. December 14, 2013
200% Awesome! It amazing how basic functions like this get over looked in software. HOWEVER, thanks to Commerce Extensions importing and exporting categories is very easy. Sometimes its the simple things that make life so much more easier, thank you Commerce Extensions! November 11, 2013
Follow up review - Scott Saved The Day In response to previous review; had an initial problem with import csv setup and in the end Scott reached out to me to solve the problem, worked late one night to help me get everything in order. Errors happen, but it is how the developer handles it, is what counts, and he now has gone the extra mile to ensure I have a working extension and did right by me. Appreciate the fact he reached back out to me when he found solution to issue as well as worked late to get things back on track. He also replies very quickly to emails which cannot be said for most others. Bottom line overall he has good products and is always available to communicate if need be to help. July 16, 2013
This extension is worth every penny!! Works as advertised and their support response time is amazing. I am using both this extension and their bulk product import / export and expect they will be saving me many hours just on unnecessary data entry. February 7, 2013
When I try to run the advanced profile for exporting categories I get this error: Fatal error: Class 'Mage_Catalog_Model_Convert_Parser_Categoryexport' not found in /home/heteroshop/domains/ on line 182 It seems to be a permissions issue but I don't know on which files I have to chnage the permissions. Please provide some support on this. Thanks! February 6, 2013
If you're launching a site with lots of categories or need to re-work your categories often this extension is super helpful and will save you loads of time. Support and forward development of the module is exceptional. January 23, 2013
When exporting files with æ...ø...å.... included the .csv file ends up corrupted... And same problem when importing if the file is not 100% perfect... it still imports and makes my structure crash. I assume the issue is really about exporting charset and importing charset using the encoding iso-8859-1. I am using OpenOffice to export the .csv file. October 19, 2012
Amazing plugin, and the best support ever!!! highly recommended. October 16, 2012
This category import/export is excellent. I've used it to import 900 categories flawlessly. Scott's customer support is absolutely world-class. He helped me work through user error issues and responded to my naive questions with complete professionalism. I would highly recommend this extension. October 2, 2012
