One of the most helpful and "must have" plugins out there. The premium version can save you tons (and I mean tons) of work.

Do not lose your time on this plugin as it offers ONLY POST capabilities and the rest is all paid. Not worthy at all. Besides, they are not frank about the free and pro version in both description and screenshots. Ethically speaking, I'd never use them.

I had the pleaser to work with Jose Vega, he helped more than any support I received from any other product thank you, Jose you are the best

9PM and I have duplicate attributes with hundreds of products spread across 40-50 duplicate terms. The chat operator was more than happy to hear my query and started a Zoom instantly to show me how to do what I needed to do. Now I have one attribute with one set of terms and all the products correctly sorted. In minutes. Its a complicated plugin for sure but its so capable and I'm blown away by the support. Thumbs up. Im done for the night. Thanks a mill.

As stated by previous reviewer, I greed that the free version is clickbait, there is nothing free version can do. Free version cannot do anything. I regreated installing this plugin, and wasted my time writing this message.
