Giang at Joomdonation/Ossolution, the plugin developer, was very helpful. Not only did he recommend an upgrade to Virtuemart 2 and assist me with that but he also helped me import the data.
I'd strongly recommend this plugin and especially the support provided.
With outstanding, friendly and very fast service from Giang I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this extension. Many thanks, you saved me hours of work!
I am a returning fan of Joomla not having used it for nearly 3 years and have forgotten most of what I knew. My php and SQL skills are mostly looking and hacking other peoples code at the most basic level and I really needed a quick way of importing products for a very difficult client. She wants it all for a bargain price.
It would have taken me around 6 hours to import each product and image into VM but I found this CSV import extension and thought it would do all I wanted. Unfortunately after spending around 7 hours trying, I was no further forward. It would import the products ok but wouldn't set the shopper groups or import images. The extensive documentation unfortunately assumes greater knowledge than I possess!
As I had paid for it I decided to try to get some support.
Quite honestly, this was (almost) the most pleasant experience I have ever had in my life.
Giang the developer talked me through things over the course of 2 days. I sent him my (very complicated)import file which he ammended and simplified and made some changes to the product code to make it do all I wanted.
Now instead of having to import Products and then do the same for images, the same template does the whole thing in one hit.
I can now produce a master csv sheet for my client to fill in with the product details; name, description, image details etc. and let me organise the sku, paths etc.
Now when the client wants changes to the shop inventory, I can use this to update everything in a couple of minutes. All I need to do is upload the images and run the script.
Along the way, I gained a lot of knowledge into how the script works.
My heartfelt thanks go out to Giang who has restored my faith in Customer Support!
The old module for loading a CSV-file from our CRM-system onto the website didn't work anymore in Joomla 2.5, so i looked at CSV Advanced and it promised exactly what i needed.
I have never payed for a Joomla extension before, but this was a pleasant experience. I ran into a small problem and e-mail to mr. Giang from the support team, next morning a got an update in my e-mail to resolve my problem!
This extension works simply very well with user-definable templates, fields, delimiters and settings.
Great value for money and friendly support. Surely the best Virtuemart CSV importing tool. Recommended!
