Very good support and easy to get up and running.

The plugin works perfectly, the support is super attentive and they help you with everything, it's worth paying for the license, I have done it and I am very happy with it!!!!

Too intrusive

By Misophoniq (Ruben.cc) on August 25, 2023

Does the simple thing it needs to do, but is way too present in the admin area. The developer was quick to respond and fix it though, but I already moved to a better alternative.

Great plugin with first class support

By crisp5 on August 17, 2023

I purchased the plugin for the ability to play local hosted mp4 videos as the featured product image. There was a slight issue with the autoplay which was solved quickly by the first class support on hand to help. The support for the plugin really is exceptional and worthy of 5 stars. Thank you FIFU!

Absolutely amazing

FIFU is a real life saver, especially if you work with a ton of products and can't host every image locally. It works flawlessly out of the box (with documentation info and compatibility for other plugins such as WP All Import) and it's crafted to pure perfection. Also, mad respect for its developer, Marcel, as not only did he create a truly unique plugin, but is also super kind and helpful whenever you need any help!

Amazing Support

By s4xton on January 26, 2023

I inherited a site with FIFU installed. Honestly didn't use the plugin much. BUT! I can say that the support was absolutely stellar and fast, and truly worthy enough for me to leave a 5-star review. Thank you!

Great Customer Support and Great Plugin

Great Customer Support and Great Plugin!

Long awaited answer

By txshellie on October 19, 2022

I've been waiting for a plugin that pulls and displays a video thumbnail as the featured image for my video-oriented posts for years. (My theme does not support a blog video post format.) FIFU grabs the thumbnail of the youtube video and posts it automatically as the featured image. Perfect. We've worked with the developers to iron out how posts that are not video posts but contain a video are handled. They've been responsive and addressed our issues right away. Highly recommend.
