What WordPress Import Plugins/Tools do you use?

I tried WP All Import, but my concerns are:

  • It requires complex coding (a cost that I am trying to avoid getting started) to import changes only, rather than doing a full import. Right now, I am doing a full import every 12 hours to meet my Board's requirement of keeping data and photos updated at least twice a day. I can only manage to import approximately 1,200 properties in time before the next 12 hour import happens. This is not efficient.
  • It actually deletes my listings from time to time. It does not affect properties that I manually add, just the ones that get imported. WP All Import is setup to match against the MLS # and delete records that no longer appear (status change from Active to something else). I believe what happens is (for example), after 7 records during import, there may be a deletion requirement and for some reason it deletes everything else. In the end, I am left with ~7 properties on my site until the next import, which usually re-imports everything back in. WP All Import could not find the issue and kept trying to claim that my property import file contained ~7 records, but it always contained the full ~1,200. To their credit, they did refund my money in full.

I am looking for a more straight-forward solution that has some coding already done for real estate sites.
