FAQ

What happens if a Make/Model already exists?

The extension checks if a Make or Model already exists before importing it into your website. By doing so we’ll prevent the creation of duplicate Makes or Models.

Note that if a Make already exists that you selected for import, the extension will still import all of it’s models that don’t exist yet.
