Saved a ton of time developing a custom connector!
First off , the connector for Akeneo to Bigcommerce was a must for a current project and until I found that WebKul had a solution we had spec'd the job to develop our own. With the time and money I was able to save my client with the connector they were not only happy but impressed.

There were some issues during installation, however the team at Webkul were quick to respond and RESOLVE all issues I had. Over the last several years I have directed clients to use WebKul plugins and have always been delighted with the strong support team and quality code delivered. I look forward to working with you again!

Keep up the good work !
