With such intensity and speed of filling the Magento 2 extension market, the question arises what the difference is between multiple variants presented. How can one select decent and substantial software? We have developed Improved Import and Export for Magento 2 with these questions in mind.
When it comes to the native import and export within Magento 2 no one can argue their clear, accessible logic. The process of data transferring follows simple patterns of adding, upgrading, replacing, and deleting. Unfortunately, despite the user-friendliness of the method some significant limitations hold down the potential stated in the description provided by the Magento team. The native functionality allows importing products of all types with related images, advanced pricing data, customer info and customer address data. The maximum size of an import file by default is bound to 2MB; you can set the bar higher only if php.ini on your server has relevant settings. Once the transfer is done all the imported data are implemented into a database according to the selected import behavior. While most of the supported data is open for updates via the import, changes in product SKU can not be applied this way. You also must be careful with special signs in your data structures. The equal sign, greater and less than symbols, single and double quotes, backslash, pipe, and ampersand symbols can sabotage your import. Native import and export work strictly with CSV files (and the same file type archived in ZIP) that also set some sort of boundaries during data transfers.

Combining all the solutions, we have created an omnipotent extension with the upgraded logic for successful data extraction and implementation.
