Functionality

Beautiful, yet customizable interface which gives this tool a very fluid feel. I found it quite efficient to work with and a strong companion for mass updates! I especially appreciate the error and history functions one can consult after a mass update to see what went through and what needs to be corrected. Also, the dry run function helps eliminating many issues beforehand!!

Ease of use

I have been using this extension now for many years on different migration projects. It reaches very far into solving issues one might encounter along the line. While there might be a slight learning curve to exploit this extension to its full potential, the built in help function is always present and there when you need it.

Support

The support is fast and precise. The developer has an excellent understanding of problem solving and helps big time. He is very open to new requests and implements them in future releases.
Thank you!

Documentation

Excellent! While I found many extensions for Joomla lack of good documentation, this one has actually a special J-Import Help section with a search function built into the tool! Whenever, I did not find what I needed, support was fast in helping.

Value for money

This extension has saved me a lot of time in many aspects and I can highly recommend it. Therefore the price tag is more than reasonable in my opinion.

I used this to: Before I started with my many projects, I did some extensive research on importing and migrating data into Joomla and JomSocial and tried different tools, but I have not found anything coming close to this one. I mainly use it for fresh imports, major upgrading, monthly and annua
