I bought that plugin a month ago. It’s not even able to import what’s exported with it. It can’t connect attributes to variation, it removes attributes, in some situations, I guess that it replaces products in wp_posts, as post_date was set to the date of importing, which then makes old products to be shown as new in sliders and search. When I try to add one attribute, it removes all others… I’ve thrown my money… I am very disappointed…
