This plugin is, by far, one of the easiest and most flexible I found (and I've been working with WP since version 1). The best feature of this plugin is the support: professional, patience, precise and quick. Highly recommended

Really impressive, flexible, easy-to-use and reliable plugin with the ability to purchase individual add-ons - some of which are not available on competitors. But the most impressive thing is the support - the best I've received on any Wordpress plugin! Francisco and the team went well beyond what was reasonable and solved my problem. Hugely thankful. Highly recommend AutomatorWP as your first choice for WP Automation.
