Working Perfectly

I purchased the pro version of the plugin and it’s working perfectly – displaying images from another site on my woocommerce category pages. The developer was quick to respond & very helpful when I had a small issue.

This was a culprit

I was getting following error message from PageSpeed Insights and finally found this was the culprit.

“An error occurred while fetching or analyzing the page”

I’m not sure this was affecting the ranking but my worry resolved by removing this plugin.

Superb Support with Integration with WP All Import/Export

I purchased the Pro version to utilize some of the import/export functionality. The developer was quick to add an additional feature that allows for directly exporting the Featured Images in WP All Export (Image URL column) and importing them to the fifu_list_url custom field. Super functionality!
