Bulk Category Update by Maex allows you to change the categories of all selected products on one screen in one click. Looking for an easier way of changing the categories of multiple products instead of opening each individual products? Well this is the solution! This extension adds a new tab 'Category' to the core "Update Attributes" functionality. Within this tab you will be able to select new categories for selected products and update them in one click.

Features of Bulk Category Update for Magento:

  • Ability to update category or categories for multiple products selected via Catalog -> Manage Products in Admin Panel
  • The old categories of the products will be rewritten
