Duplicate Finder , 28 reviews
We did not expect much at first when we got this app because it was priced low, and seemed basic, but when we got it, we were very impressed with how powerful of a resource it was. It was able to help us identify duplicates based on title, sku, barcode, and more. We used it mainly to find products (and variants) without images, and it was a huge help! We reached out one time for support, and got a response within 24 hours, and he resolved the issue. Great work!
I used this app to help me get a bunch of duplicates removed from my store. It seemed to work well, but I do wish that when exporting the duplicates, that you were able to change the fields that are exported. For example, to make sure which duplicate was the right one to delete, I needed to see if the product had a description or not. Otherwise, the only other thing I would fix is the UI. It isn't too user friendly and kind of hard to follow. Other than those issues, It worked as expected and did what I needed.
Duplicate Finder gave me a birds-eye view of what was wrong with our store data, and the bulk deletion options offered several detailed ways to address it. Once I figured out how to sync my data (the navigation is a little unintuitive until you get the hang of it) everything worked great.
This app is a life saver. You wont be disappointed to use it. The app will save you a lot of time by simpifying your task. Before I use the app, I would take me a long time to sort thru my duplicated title and SKU. With this app, it takes second to find them and the app will also delete the duplicated one for you. I highly recommend this app.
5 Stars A1 Service via Skype. This Duplicate Finder App helps us save time looking for many types of images duplicates and data duplicates to export. I had some requests to add delete features and to have the advantage to delete duplicates in bulk or by selected. DF's superior customer service rep did so in a timely manner matter. Great work DF support team!
Incredible support service. And the app is absolutely perfect for my needs and help me to save LOT of time. Thank you so much Raman for helping!
I want to start off with saying this company is hands down one of the best that I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Here comes the lengthy version now, well worth the read.
I have been stuck in the ICU with Covid Pneumonia for several weeks now. Sadly as a small business owner I have been working 12-15hr days still with a ventilator in my lungs. Our website had a lot of duplicate issues, and where causing account level problems with Adwords and Google Merchant Center. Raman from Webappslive and his amazing team not only was able to help fix our issues, but he really took the reins and was able to help while I couldnt. My oxygen level is low, and I am on so much meds that half the day I am out of my mind literally. The 4-5hrs I get of 100% I focus and push hard but the other hours I waste a lot of time right now. Honestly without this team and the amazing work I would be stuck weeks behind still. If there was a 10 star option here I would leave it. A++++ AMAZING THANK YOU GUYS as I owe all of our success here to you and your team of skilled workers!
An incredible time saver - just make sure you have only the specific options you want so you don't delete things by mistake. Probably wise to export everything as a back up first.
Great app - does what it says it does perfectly. Most imptly, Raman is always available to help! 5 stars!
**EDIT: within 24 hours of posting a review of this app complaining about the new "customer information" permission, I received an email from support politely explaining the process that had happened to cause this addition, and reassuring me that my customers' privacy was safe and that I could reinstall the app. The text of that email is as follows: "Hello Jacki's Boutique Admin,
Thanks for posting a comment.
I apologize for it. Actually a few weeks ago few of our clients requested us to provide a tool to find duplicate customers based on duplicate phone numbers and duplicate billing addresses in their store. So due to such clients we changed the request permissions to access customers also. Since they needed the customer based tool very very urgently, we changed the default scope to access customers also in hurry. I agree that it should not be done for everyone, but since it was required by them urgently so instead of wasting time in changing it through our core code files we changed it immediately through settings (just by ticking the checkbox in our admin panel). But now we have removed that customer's access permissions. You can use it again without any worry. We are always ready to resolve and fulfil the needs of merchants, you can reach me any time by using the contact information given on the app. I also want to inform you that we do not keep the data of stores on our servers. If you open the sync page of the app then you will find an erase button on that page. If you click on that button then immediately any synced data of the store gets erased from our backend. This also helps us in cleaning/ freeing the space of our server. For the UI, actually we are busy in providing the core functionality based tools. We believe that the needs of merchants should be fulfilled as early as possible by providing them core functional tools. Design of web-pages are not so necessary & required. Merchants are not coming to the app to see fancy parts on our app's pages, they need to do their tasks on a daily basis by using the app. But I agree with you and respect your feedback that UI and flow should be improved. We are working here in our office to improve the UI & flow of the app and will update it continuously.
At last I would like to invite you again on the app, You can use it without any worry." I'm quite impressed with their logical explanation and good customer service, for a FREE app nonetheless, and I'll go ahead and reinstall after updating this review.** ORIGINAL REVIEW (now inaccurate): Summary: Functional but now it wants my customers' personal information. Basic functionality was good for a while - not the best UI or procedural flow, but it was free, so that was fine. However, a recent update now has it requesting the following access:
This includes: customer data.
Duplicate Finder will be able to access personally identifiable information about your customers, including names, email addresses, phone numbers, and physical addresses." This app has NO NEED to access this information, and it is absolutely a security breach for shop owners to provide it to the developers. I will be uninstalling the app entirely unless guarantees are made that my customers' information will NOT be viewed, edited, or accessed in ANY way by this app.
