We are very pleased with this extension overall this product is making our job and updates a lot smoother and easier. There was a small hiccup at first but had great help from Jackie. Her quick response , customer service and assistance to the matter was amazing
I highly recommend this extention to anyone with 2000+ products that constantly update.
Thank you so very much, I'm happy with your service and excellent customer support. I was confused at first and you provided me with answers to my questions. In addition to installing it for me. I highly recommend this extention to anyone looking for a great way to add static urls. It works.
At first I had some troubles importing the images. The issue was caused by a server minsconfiguration but the staff supported me for a whole week and made any effort to help me solve an issue not related to their software (even my host refused to help me!!!).
At the end everything is perfectly working! Thank you Geeks, this is the best expense I've ever made.
A great product that easily solves something Magento should offer as standard. When I had trouble installing it (due to my PHP settings and nothing to do with the product), the support was excellent and they had it fixed for me in no time. Would highly recommend the product for affiliate sites and the service is second to none.
Fastest support and great extension!
I had problems to run external images with three of my third-party extension (for example a product-scroller). Jackie`s support was so great that now all my extensions are showing external images without any problems. Thank you very much for supporting me!
Anyone considering this extension are making a good choice. This is a great little extension that does exactly what it says it will. We used it in a 1.6 store and it's performed really well.
In addition the support we received from Jackie was first class. In all I thoroughly recommend both.
