I’m using this plugin on my website and I can tell you that plugin works exactly as intended and it’s simple to configure and set up. Updates are also frequent and does not break things. Also, support is the best and the most responsive that I have ever come across in any plugin that I’m using or I have used. Developer will help you set up the plugin and explain how things works, even if he don’t need to. He is very responsive on emails, so that’s a very big plus – especially when the plugin like this one should work all the time. Anyway, if you are looking for such plugin, I recommend it a lot!
