Store Manager for Magento - Professional Edition
An absolute necessity...
You really don't know how much you need it until you have it. I know it is a little pricey, but in my honest opinion, it is well worth every penny I spent! If you are debating back in forth on using this software or not (it's not really an extension, I'd call it a desktop software app), I highly recommend just trying it for free...they give you a free 2 week trial and then you will see if you need it. If you have 1000's of products or plan on having that many on your website, then this is the perfect software for importing/exporting products and inventory. I had some problems connecting to my database in at first, but it was a firewall problem. The live support helped me with all issues. NO, I am not affiliated with this company in any way...I just want to give praise on a product when it is worth it.

Does Data Importing Better Than Any Other Tool Out There
Company I work for pitched in the money to get this tool. I dont use it much but when I do I am very thankful for it.
Smooth importing of categories, products, and attributes, offering you things that magento does not. There is a guided wizard that does all the matching for you with the internal workings of the Magento database.
Dont spend hours waiting to import 1000's of products using magento import profile system. This program provides raw connection to DB to execute those things for you in a matter of seconds, literally. 1000 product import in 20 seconds.

Brilliant extension, which makes working with large stores a pleasure. Trying to carry out site wide changes using the Magento interface would be soul destroying, for example price changes. I can change the price of 20,000 products in a couple of minutes. Also the csv product import is amazingly quick too. So many time saving features. I prefer working with the PHP bridge mode, it's far quicker in my opinion.
As for the minus points: It's far too expensive, but as it's saved me so much time I can almost live with that. Product import and export is limited to 3000 products when you buy the cheaper version. This means I end up having to chop my csv sheets into 7 parts, which is a bit of a pain, but not the end of the world. I'll probably upgrade to the pro version soon purely because it allows me to switch between my different Magento stores much more quickly. If you're serious about building e-commerce sites then buy this, and you might even be able to pass the cost on to the client for buying it!

This addon does what it advertises. I'm so glad I obtained it, as it makes Magento import process simple and fluent! Solid and intuitive interface makes it easy to work with my backend. In case I have some questions or misunderstandings I can fall back upon documentation and cooperative support team. The only weaker point: the license allows the installation and usage on one computer only, for more computers additional license is required. In general, I'm happy because I got what I paid for!

I have had various issues with this extension. It messes up my product data and basically is unusable.

Let me join the people saying “good extension” on this application. I keep finding nice features every day. At the same time I appreciate a large number of video tutorials that are very valuable for beginners and explaining most of the useful functions included in this module. Even with such a high price, this extension is worth it.

This is the one extension I always wanted to be with!
I'm using it on Magento latest version in combination with the "automated product import" for a couple of months now without any problems. I would be willing even to pay to get implemented an automated solution where my products are automatically updated on Amazon.
You have created a remarkable product which differs from tools of that kind, thanks!

Just purchased this extension. Easy to install and always runs direct without high level of technical expertise. I had support configure the connection with the store for me. It’s really very professional and full of useful options. I was pleased with the import/export tool and custom report option. Probably one of the best working solution we could find for importing products of all types.This extension is perfect for any serious project.

I have had a multitude of issues with the software including not being able to change Media Positions, settings not remaining saved, and changes not being committed.
Numerous emails have lead to no resolution and they are now asking for $100/hour if I would like for them to use VNC to bug check this $500 product that I have purchased. At this point I am sorely disappointed and feel very much like I have been had.

I am using standard edition for over 6 months now. There are no moduls to compare with this one. No problems for this 6 months. It would probably take me two years to do what I did for six months with this .
