Reviews

No invoice & no support

The plugging is extremly good. The bad thing is that they dont give you invoice for the plugin. I paid the plugin with my company card. I gave them 5 emails asking for the invoice and giving them the company details. I recived an invoice after 2 weeks that wasn’t on the company. I hope that they will give me soon the invoice i need so i dont have problems. So how i said the support is very very very very bad

Very awesome plugin

This plugin is great – it pulls down just the right items, and with photos! Very easy to use and helpful for the customers. We had issues setting this up but their tech support worked closely with our developer and had it working in no time. Worth the money.

Hoax?

Pay attention this is not a free one 🙁

Also notice that it’s not clear who exactly are the people behind this company as they have no contact form, team or company behind it – do we trust them to handle our sensitive information?

Lastly, I have never seen a plugin that has the same number of Total Downloads and Active Installs – declaring red alert on this one community.
