Support Made It Awesome
by Kevin K
The support team, specifically Jack, made the extension awesome by helping me with the importing of many products. We realized some of the errors was with the actual data that was being imported, so we got that worked out. Support was very knowledgeable and ready to help. The extension did need fixed by the support team, so keep that in mind. Keep mind they are located in Germany, so support times vary.
A class extension / support
by Danel
I needed some extra functionality, delivered in few days, A+ class support!
Excellent Support
by Norman Francis
Our team needed the ability to update an FPT (WEEE) attribue for several thousand SKUs. However, this functionality is not a part of the M2 core. We reached out to the Firebear team about the issue and they promptly got to work. Within 24 hours, we had an updated version of the extension, complete with the ability to update FPT attributes. This saved us dozen of hours that would have potentially been spent updating SKUs manually. Highly recommended.
Great support & great extension
