Free is okay, Paid is terrible
By , for WP 4.3

This is a review for the Pro version which is $150. I made a rash decision to purchase the pro version of Ultimate CSV Importer (the Pro version has WP Types support, which was perfect for my needs)... the entire process was pretty horrible. I didn't get a license for days despite paying $150 for the plugin (kinda high for a plugin). Once I finally did get the license and the download, I ran into problems and errors as soon as I activated it... it took bunches more time to try to get to resolution. Ultimately I went with a different solution and I figured as bad as the beginning of this process was, I really couldn't imagine what maintenance/upgrades would look like, so I asked for a refund. No joy. The guy basically took me for $150. This is such poor practice. Joke's on me for not being more careful, but I got excited and jumped the gun. In any case, just wanted to warn folks, I'm pretty sure this is just one guy who frankly isn't very understanding or reasonable.

produces javascript errors, can't use

Produces java script errors when trying to change settings. does not appear to be a stable or immediately usable product.

Bait and switch for the pro version
By , for WP 4.2.2

Don't bother unless you want to buy the Pro.

Terrible customer service, terrible plugin, all terrible don't use!

I have a site I'm developing for a business and I need to get it done somewhat quickly. I needed to be able to upload a bunch of custom post data into the site. I installed this plugin because so many others had and though it looked good. It was glitchy from the beginning and would only upload 40 items at a time and was missing info and just weird and screwed up.

At that point I needed it to work so I went to their site and ordered it online and paid for it. The site said I would get an email with all the info I needed. I never received the email, the pro plugin or anything. I was in a bind and got no responses from anyone.

I bought and loaded http://www.wpallimport.com/ which worked wonderfully and I highly recommend. Not glitchy, no missing data. just an all around better product.

At that point I was hoping to get my money back. I emailed the developer and he basically said it was a digital product and I should "buzz off". I wasn't getting anything back. I've emailed them numerous times with no response.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE. IT'S A RIP OFF. AVOID THEM!

Convoluted, clunky plugin
By , for WP 4.1.1

The installation process is arduous (requires rooting around in ioncube and htaccess), and once I had my hosting settings updated to match the requirements, the CSV import failed in WordPress 4.1. If you're prepared to pay for a CSV importer plugin, don't waste your time with this, get WP All Import instead.

Furthermore the license is for just one domain (doesn't even include subdomains or work in a local environment! So frustrating for working on test sites).

Sorry - I have to say this is SEVERELY broken
By , for WP 4.1

Stops all posts from making a preview
Breaking other well made plugins

Please take a hard look at you latest update as it's in really bad shape. I hate to even say this but, but it need to be said to protest other users

Best of Luck : )

Removing the tables this plugin creates should not be a PRO feature
By , for WP 4.0

The export functionality for custom post types doesn't appear to work. I just get a white screen on the export.php file. Also, there's a few pages in here, that the whole page is just a picture of what the pro version looks like. I clicked on the picture quite a few times before I realized they weren't buttons. That is very uncool. Thanks for wasting my time. Also, there are JavaScript errors on every page of this plugin.

This plugin leaves junk tables in the database after it's deactivated. There is a setting to remove the tables upon deactivation, but when you click to enable that function, a message box pops up saying this is only for pro version...

Why would someone pay $149.00 for the PRO version if they're going to DEACTIVATE AND DELETE IT?

not working
By , for WP 4.0

after uploading the csv file it shows white screen
already it is conflicting with most of popular and important plugins
i dont know how a poor plugin like this , can be sold for 149$ it is really a big scam

dont even think to download the free version it is waste of time

horrible: errors that you can't figure out, and doesn't work
By ,

After spending several hours trying to figure out what the error messages displayed really meant in order to get it to run, it didn't import any of the custom fields I specified. This plugin is just really badly coded.

wasted money into pro version
By , for WP 3.9.2

a lot of trouble and not able to activate because of ioncube trouble.
ioncube works fine, installed and tested with loader-wizard.
Switched to woothemes csv-import-suite and this works great.
poor support (always same answers and instructions, not really productive) and no money back warranty.
