This seemed a decent tool until I purchased it...
It is too basic and not flexible enough, it does not allow you to associate the DB fileds with the spreadsheet columns and it not allowing to perform a mass update within Virtuemart itself after you have imported the products.
$30 is not a lot but for something that does a lot of things but none of them good its not worth it.

I strongly suggest CSV Advanced as the best extension for bulk importing massive data (products, categories, manufacturers, etc.) into Virtuemart, by using a standard CSV text file.
Thanx to CSV Advanced and its support team I've imported about 5k products in a snap.
GREAT extension (CSV Advanced) and GREAT support team (thanx Giang).
5 BIG STARS for sure!!!!!

This is not a proper review, I never write those. But I have to give props if someone has helped me out like Dinh did. :-)

I bought this extension to save time not having to build an import function on top of Virtuemart for csv files myself. There was one problem with the extension that I could not solve quickly (without having to look at the code). After checking the support forum turned out this needed a small custom change on the code. I applied and Dinh was very quick to help me out on Skype for a very reasonable price.

Thanks again Dinh!

Was looking for an extension to import 500 products extracted from an ASP website into an online catalogue website using VirtueMart.
Quickly picked one and yeah, it's been my right choice ever.
The component is so good, it can automatically generate associated info/columns of other tables.

Due to the lack of detailed documentation, I was seeking some helps from Giang. The customer support was responsive. Overall fully satisfied with the service.

Gave him some suggestions, I believe the future version will tackle all current cons.

This product, once configured correctly is excellent. However, the configuration is understandably quite time consuming and combersome.
As your working with CSV files it is quite unforgiving when it comes to mistake.
The customer service at times has been excellent but reently has been slacking (I'm awaiting support for 3 weeks and counting for one issue).

I recently purchased CSV Advanced to populate almost 700 products into a Virtuemart shop. I was having some issues with the pricing import. The issue turned out to be confusion between virtuemart_vendor_id and virtuemart_manufacturer_id. Giang was very helpful in sorting out the issue, talking with me on Skype as my site wasn't publicly accessible.

Highly recommended.
