This is the best solution i've found to migrate a multisite subsite to another multisite network. Awesome plugin and the support is truly committed to providing the best service and solving the problem.

This is a great plugin if you which to migrate single site to multisite without having to mess around with the database manually which can be quite cumbersome for a multisite as the user meta table need to be merged. As far as i now this is the only plugin which can export and merge a single site to multisite with a few clicks. The team is also offering excellent support and seems to be very open to introduce more support for tings like bbpress based on user feedback.

After spending two days searching for a plugin that is compatible with multisite migration, this plugin was able to do the trick! Very easy to use, and the developer did a great job providing documentation to walk me through the process. Thank you for providing such an invaluable plugin! It'll be my go-to migration plugin from now on (multisite or not).

One of the only plugins to offer Multi-site to Single-site migrations in it base functionality so was perfect for my requirement. I hit a bug during my migration so raised a support ticket and received excellent, knowledgeable and timely support that was above and beyond the support levels I have experienced from paid-for plugins. Many Thanks. 6 stars 😀

Thank you for such a great plugin, it's definitely the best competitor to most popular migration plugins, I tried most of them and Prime mover really surprised me with its functionality and simplicity

I tried using many many free plugins for migrating my site from localhost multisite setup to server host single-site setup. but none worked successfully. Prime Mover plugin finally did the job. However, the IMPORT feature inside the plugin gave some difficulty but uploading the migration package directly to the server via FTP solve the problem. I had sent an email to the developer and within 24 hrs got a reply with a proper solution. When you want to migrate your sub-site from a multisite setup to single-site setup, you will face many problems with free plugins. some will not support multisite, some will throw errors, some will not support localhost.
