Floris G.

Never do business with them again

2019-12-03

Pros

The reporting tool and the dashboard which gives you an overview.

Cons

It's extremely expensive compared to their competitors and their client service is -from my experience- bad. Also the way they try to extend a contract is not very 'client-friendly.'

The opportunities that Import.io opens up is immense

2019-03-20

I first discovered and used Import.io back when they had a free desktop browser - this led me to working with Import.io across a number of projects, something that I wouldn't have been able to do without the free browser. It's a shame that this has gone, but I still can't fault the value behind the product these days.

Pros

- Powerful - there's more to just extraction these days, with manipulation and reporting - SO easy to get started with, with smart data extraction, there's a lot that can be done without REGEX or XPath - Scalable - Great support

Cons

- It's not affordable for the single user anymore

Great data extraction tool

2014-07-28

import.io is a good, relatively simple API creation tool. Their UI may not be the prettiest, but once you actually drill down into using the tool it can do some pretty powerful stuff.

Lots of power for non-programmers and friendly pricing

2018-03-28

Pros

Import.io gives you the ability to generate custom data through web scraping.

Cons

Some workflows could have better UI: sometimes there can be a lot of clicking for repetitive and simple tasks, especially on websites with many pages.

Great tool for what it does!

2016-10-10

We primarily used import.io in conjunction with a Twitter search engine app to compile structured data for searches based on specific hashtags, keywords, and usernames.

Avoid Import.io

2018-06-26

Pros

It's a good tool and has successfully built a product that can easily collect data with just a few clicks.

Cons

They have changed their terms and are now claiming overuse - despite the fact there used to be an account query limit that prevented you exceeding your plan. They have removed this limit, not updated any terms and conditions and have not notified their customer base in order to try and catch out users and hit them with a large 'overage fee' despite there being no mention of this anywhere on their website.

Useful Keyword Tool

2019-02-13

As someone who runs ppc ads, this tool is useful for extracting data from websites that can then be deployed as keywords

It's an 'okay' tool, with the worst customer service

2018-05-17

Pros

The user-interface was easy to navigate.

Cons

We tried to close our account ahead of the scheduled relapse date, and Import ignored our calls & messages until the relapse date had passed.

Extracting data from website couldn't be easier

2017-10-14

This saved me at minimum days of manual entry from websites. And that was for a small project. With a large extraction job this would be a life saver.

Pros

I set up a extractor to use for data analysis of URLs of many different groups and it was pretty easy to do.

Cons

I wish products from other for collecting/using data were as good, and that I still had projects that used this excellence product.

The WORST customer experience of my life!

2018-07-19

Pros

You know, I really did like using the software in the beginning - it helped reduce a ton of time-consuming data collecting.

Cons

As soon as I had issues, there was ZERO help. They just defer your requests and hope that you'll give up. I did NOT want to renew, so I went to cancel my annual subscription a few weeks before it was supposed to renew. It turns out they require a minimum of 4 weeks notice to cancel! They refused to cancel my subscription and charged my credit card. I spoke to a salesperson and he was the rudest person I've ever spoken to - making false promises and never following up. So now we're stuck with this EXPENSIVE software for another year. If you're thinking about subscribing to their software, my advice is to stay far away!
