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.
