free version is empty
By , for WP 4.3.1

In order to have a catalogied, you must buy the plugin. Free version does nothing. Waste of my time to find this out, not paying for this.

Can't do anything - AVOID
By , for WP 4.3.1

You can't do anything unless you buy it. Even the main options and settings are disabled so you can't see how things might look when you change the settings.

Even though it says 'The possibility of importing/exporting products in CSV will allow the user to make quick changes and to update the catalog easily.' in the description, I can't find any way to perform these actions.

Seems to me the developers are more interested in taking your money than they are in giving you the chance to see if their product is any good.

AVOID.

Do not buy the full version of this plugin if you want to customize anything - I planned on adjusting the plugin to my needs and thought I could css my way out of it, but every style is hardcoded (!) and placed inside a million tables(!!!) The output and url's are not SEO friendly in any way.

Bad presentation / Can't do anything
By , for WP 4.2.3

The way you put a free version, but with literally every option of the plugin blocked, is really frustrating. When i download a free version i want to be impressed, i want to be excited to see what the pro version is able to do.

Here it was a waste of time. I downloaded the free version, but couldn't do anything without paying for the pro version.

If you can't do absolutely nothing with the free version, why make it available for download?

I don't think you can delete these reviews, but at least I got here in time to edit it.

Turns out it was my own fault, and the plugin works as advertised. Sorry for the rating.

Major hole in its design

You can't upload data into the catalog from a spreadsheet or csv. It must all be entered by hand.

As far as I am concerned, this makes the plugin completely useless in any real environment.

Unless you purchase it, this isn't worth using or trying. Very limited
