Very good support and an excellent extension I have been impressed with BelVG's attention to support requests. Any query I had was answered promptly and they seem eager to please. Recommended! November 28, 2014
Great extension, superb support! I buyed this extension and found some incompatibility issue with my theme then the guys of the support made great support and now everyting is ok! September 27, 2013
Great extension and fantastic support The extension does right what they are telling you in the product overview. We had some issues with theme compatibility and BelVG managed to resolve the issues right in time. September 5, 2013
Great Extension; INCREDIBLE service I inherited a webstore and this extension from a previous employee, and knew nothing about the extension. Not only did the support staff help me find the order so they could work on it, but their responses were within a few hours (maximum one day) most times and were always extremely helpful. Every issue I reported was fixed VERY quickly and very well. The extension itself is great, but I was blown away by the support staff. Absolutely fantastic job. July 19, 2013
I would just like to extend my gratitude to the BelVG support staff. There were a few issues getting it setup but they provided a quick, polite and excellent service to get the store locator working perfectly for me. I couldn't fault them in the slightest, an absolute pleasure to work with and will be the first company I return to should I require any further extensions. Thanks again! July 24, 2012
I have to agree with Tricki. SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT. not only fast but they guide me through the hole thing. Easy to install, easy to use, My store locator is working perfectly. Thanks for such a great product May 7, 2012
Fantastic support received from BelVG. They amended the module to fit in with our custom skin and kept in contact until they were sure it was working. Brilliant module as well. Thanks for your support and great communication. May 2, 2012

Like the earlier questioner, I have a huge number of locations to input -- thousands. The ability to get them into your system is a make or break sort of feature.

Importing...?

How about utilizing a CSV to be imported into the DB table directly? Can this be done, or are there too many db table relationships. I also have several hundred entries, and would like to NOT have to enter manually.
Please advise.

Hi, have you enabled import via CSV for this plugin?

I have seen your previous answers to the question but can you either quote price for the upload feature (my email address is attached to the magentoconnect message), or can you say whether an updated version will be released soon?

Thanks.

I know you answered a similar question above but we still aren't certain what the answer really is:

We are considering purchasing this extension for a multi-site customer project.

Would we be required to purchase a license for each domain used or will your license cover all of them given there will only be one installation of the extension?

Answer: 
Hello,

One extension license is per one Magento installation. It means that if you run your multiple stores by the same Magento installation (Magento allows that) you don't have to buy additional licenses. If you are planning to use our products within several different Magento installations, you got to buy as many extension licenses, as many Magento installations you have.

However, there's one more thing you should consider: if you purchase our products, you may install them to your Magento development website. We assume a website to be development if it's not public and if it has no real orders / customers. In this case you don't need to have additional licenses. You may install extensions to your production and to your development websites under the same license.

Don't hesitate to contact us for any further questions.
Best regards
