Dataflow Batch Import + Export Orders To CSV / XML
I must apologize for posting a negative review of this product. After speaking with Scott about the issues we were experiencing, we were able to get the import extension functioning without any issues. The culprit was unexpected, but I'm glad that we were able to solve the issue.
Scott, thank you for your patience. I would definitely recommend this extension.

I highly recommend that you do not waste your money on this extension.
When it works, it doesn't function as you would expect. For example, during an import if it runs into a product SKU that is not found in the database, the order grand total is set to 0, fake names given to the products (I-oe_productstandin), and those fake products are actually SAVED to your database. I won't even go into what happens if your emails notifications are turned on.
I had the developer work on this, he wasn't able to get it working, granted my build of Magento 188.8.131.52 is modified.
I then had a team of magento experts take a crack at it. They got it working, but warned me that it can break at any moment and that I should not use this extension if I can avoid it.
Finally, I had my own internal development team modify it so that it would function as you would expect, and we discovered that the code was written in an inline fashion. There's no error reporting, and it's unnecessarily complex. When it works, it takes about a minute per order import, which is extraordinarily inefficient.
If you have an unmodified version of Magento, maybe it will work for you, but if you have any modifications, I do not recommend this product. It's ended up costing us a small fortune to get it working.

Essential Extension for Moving Orders
We had to upgrade a client's site from 1.3x to 1.8.1 --needless to say, a real problem. Moreover this is a live site, so the move had to be done very, very quickly so the site wasn't offline for any great length of time. This extension plus Scott's responsive and helpful support allowed us to do it very quickly and correctly. Scott really went all out (including doing the installation on the old version which was having problems) to help us get this up and running. I should mention also that we've used his other extensions to import categories and attributes and all have worked very well. Strongly recommend that you use these if you need to move key data from one site to another.

I was searching for an extension that could export orders from and very old version (1.4) and import into newly upgraded (1.8).
I found this one and it works perfectly.
Had a little trouble with setting up profiles but contacted developer and he was very fast with response and support.
This is perfect tool if you have many orders from old Magento and needs to import into new.
Thumbs up :)

FANTASTIC Life Saving Order Migration App
This app is fantastic. Allowed us to overcome a major migration hurdle at the last minute. PLUS the developer was super responsive and went out of his way to provide outstanding support.

This extension is the only thing out there that can effectively handle difficult exports / imports. It works great & the developer, Scott is completely on the ball.

The extension worked right away, but was pulling different data than I was expecting. The developer responded to my email within hours and provided updated code. This order export tool is a great product with great support!

This extension works great, the developer even helped us create a custom import setup to process our call center orders.
Support answered my questions extremely fast, and the custom import setup was done the same day I requested it. The extension also came with example csv/xml files unlike other extensions where it's all guess work.
If you're looking for a solid import/export extension look no further this is the one for you.

Extension is helpful and adds much needed functionality. Also the author was quick to respond to my emails and friendly. However, in discussion before ordering product, author gave assurance that this extension would do specific things, but after purchase said those features would need to be programmed in. Author offered to make those changes, but we ended up making the modifications ourselves.
