I paid 49$ for the pro version 🙁 Completely useless. Tried 10 times and gave up. Why would you pay so much for a buddypress csv import plugin that does not work straightforward? Found a BETTER and FREE one at : [ Redacted. Don't do that, OK? Keep the review about this plugin ]

In-fact last since last 6 Month we are appreciated by so many customers both for the product features, support and custom modifications. Regards Team YTL

Hi, I have purchased the plugin but I have not received a confirmation email or a download link. Submission for on support site does not work. No very impressed so far

I think developer is not supporting the plugin for both pro version as well as free version. The support form on websites returns with error and he doesn't reply on WP forum either.

The CSV file is designed for US addresses only (city, State, ZIP). To the best of my knowledge, the web extends beyond US borders (humor intended, not sarcasm). Could we please have a field for country? Thanks!
