Great Extension, Even Better Support
The extension itself is great, and really easy to install on Connect Manager. We realised that it didn't quite do what we wanted from it but we contacted the support and within a few days they had tweaked a few settings so that we can now import new categories & sub-categories so that they import into the correct category, import category updates and export categories with all the editable information. Couldn't recommend the support enough, they know so much about what they are doing and are very quick and helpful to get you sorted. We are now looking into their other extensions.

Useful extension, fast support
The extension is very useful to what we need to do - which is updating every year the contents of a product catalog. It allows us to import quickly hundreds of categories and subcategories in 6 languages, including also category description, category image and basically most category attributes. We encountered a problem we thought it was an issue of the extension but it proved to be just an inconsistency in our import file. The Magebees support was very quick and helped us by pointing up this inconsistency.

  • Amazing Features! - for Product Labels extension
    This extension has really shined through all the others we tried. Simple to work with, lots of customization and conditional options. The support team and developer are great at helping to resolve issues and answer any questions you have. I highly suggest this over any other label/banner extension out there!

  • Great extension & support! - for Best Seller Products extension
    Great extension & support!

  • Excellent Extension with great support! - for Import Export Products extension
    When we tried to use this extension to import hundreds of configurable products associated with 46 simple products, the process was very slow and sometimes we will encounter the 500 Internal Server Error. We therefore contacted the developer for help. They responded quickly and provided us a file without the re-indexing code. This speeded up the process a lot and made product import went smoothly. Thank you!

  • Perfect tool for our needs - for Quotation Manager Pro extension
    We needed a tool to allow customers to submit requests for quotes to sales engineers who would work with the customer on their final product. Working around some of the limitations of the Magento 1.9 interface, QMP is just what we need, and offers a number of unique -- and uniquely useful -- features. The documentation is not as thorough as I would have liked, but their support has been excellent and that more than makes up for any shortcomings.

  • Great Import Tool! - for Import Export CMS Blocks extension
    This extension provided us the ability to import specific data that is not available through the standard Magento CE import tool. We desired a quick way to create a large number of blocks which we could then connect to their specific category page and this tool was up to the task. In addition, MageBees support is first rate. They were extremely responsive and helpful. I would highly recommend this extension!

  • Excellent Extension!!! - for Lazy Load Images extension
    Installed easily with no problems (Magento v1.9.3.10). Just had to figure out: A: Which file to add the cwslazyloader class/data. B. Where to add them in the file. My site uses an Ultimo theme & is heavily modified. So the file was in a different location & the code was slightly different. However, once I got them in the correct place - BINGO it does what it is supposed to do. Thank you Magebees team for this FREE & functioning Extension!

  • most comprehensive and good support - for YMM Products Parts Finder extension
    I've gone through the amasty and another part finder. They are both good but have their limitations. The magebees one had a lot of extra features to make the set up easy and when I had a query they handled it within 24 hours.
