A complete package
September 16, 2021
You can export almost all data with this program and also migrating from M2 to a clean install of M2 is also possible. As we all know the many upgrades ESPECIALLY form 2.2 to 2.3 has made for a lot of garbage in the DB, this module will allow you to migrate to a clean install with minimal work. Their customer service is also great.

works well
September 16, 2021
I am using this this with Magento Community Edition. I am fairly new to Magento and have a large inventory of products. I was finding it difficult to use the product import that comes with Magento.
Improved Import Export has solved my issues. It was easy to install (maybe a bit difficult if you're completely new to PHP etc) and it worked pretty well straight away.
After upgrading, I ran into some issues. I contacted support and they were fantastic. They had my problems fixed and I was back up and running within a couple of days. I'm in Australia, so some of that was due to time zone issues.
Anyway - I would recommend this product if you are having trouble with the standard product import features in Magento Community Edition.

amazing support and help
September 16, 2021
We had a planned data load using the firebear export/import tool of MSI data, unfortunately we hit an technical issue on Friday.

This issue would potentially delay importing production data, however we were lucky to have Hitesh Suthar from firebear support who arranged a remote session and worked patiently with us and resolved our issue in a very professional manner.

I was extremely impressed with the manner and patience Hitesh answered my questions regarding SKU and other questions I had about the utility after fixing the issue above and beyond comes to mind.

What can I say 5* Firebear you guys are awesome!!
