About the Developer

This extension was developed by and is supported by bolasevich

Bulk Category Import / Export is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full Featured With Amazing Support Easily installed. Creating my first ever Dataflow - Advanced Profile, made it clear I needed the GUI add-on. A bit hesitant, though Scott's exemplary support thus far made it an easy sell. My objective was to attach images to all Subcategories of a specific Parent Category. With the GUI's "Profile Wizard", I successfully isolated the Subcategories by using its "Field Mapping" (i.e. url_path). After manually adding the image names to the exported spreadsheet and a little cleanup, I imported it back into Magento. It a really powerful tool once you dig deeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product with First class support We needed a product to synchronise our localised category data from one store to another. The Bulk Category Import Extension made this process easy and intuitive. We have a fairly complex set of requirements and therefore needed help through the integration process. All of our support questions were answered immediately, I have never had better support and therefore thoroughly recommend this company and the Category Import Extension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as described Great extension, can't build a proper Magento site without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and to the point I have hundreds of products that I needed to appear in order of popularity based sales that are not in magento, This extension allowed me to add my products to the categories in the order I wanted. It gives me the freedom to change a lot more stuff without worrying that I will have to spend hours recreating stuff. Perfect when I need to get new categories onto the live site that I have previously tested on my develop site. I have only needed to contact the dev on two occasions. The first time my email was answered in 10 minutes, the second time in less than 2. I am very happy with this and would recommend to anyone else. I am using it on Magento Community 1.9.1.0

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful Just downloaded almost 900 categories within 30 minutes. Definitely worth time saving

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very powerful extension and very fast support I bought this extension to update a large number of categories with different informations according to store-view: everything worked perfectly. Moreover I had some questions about it and support service answered very quickly. I absolutely recommend this extension.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved me hours of work I bought this extension to transfer our site to a clean install. I exported all our categories and imported them to the new site. What would have taken me hours and hours to do manually this extension did in 20 minutes. Great support too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and great. What a developer, everything is simple yet extremely useful. Any issues he goes the extra mile to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
