The Duplicate Categories extension for Magento 2, helps you save 99% of your time on category management by adding a duplicate category button to your edit categories, allowing you to duplicate or copy category structures with or without subcategories and products, from one category to another with a single click.

The Duplicate Categories extension is a must-have tool for any store with many categories. It simplifies the repetitive task of creating similar categories. You will no longer create duplicate categories manually. 

On top of that, the extension provides a clear user guide in the administration panel, to describe how to duplicate categories.


Choose a parent category during the duplication

The Duplicate Categories extension, allows you to choose a parent category when duplicating a category. You can place the copied category where you need. After the duplicate, the new copied category with structure will be placed under the selected parent category.

Duplicate or copy categories with or without subcategories

The extension allows you to choose whether to duplicate only the selected category or to duplicate the category including subcategories. 

To includes the subcategories during the duplication, set the "Include subcategories" field to yes. If you need to copy a category with no subcategories, set the "Include subcategories" field to No while duplicating.

Duplicate or copy categories with or without products

With the Duplicate Categories for Magento 2, you can include the category products during the duplication, set the "Include product relations" field to yes, to copy products during the duplication. If you need to copy a category with no products, set the "Include product relations" field to No while duplicating, and your category or subcategory will be duplicated without any products assigned to it.

Quickly find and replace content while duplicating

The extension allows you to quickly find and replace content in the category name, description, meta keywords, and meta description fields while duplicating.

For example :

  • If you want to copy your "Jacket" category and rename it to "Men Jacket", search for "Jacket" while duplicating and replace it with "Men Jacket". 
  • If you want to replace the category meta keywords "clothes" to "men clothes", just search for "clothes" while duplicating and replace it with "men clothes". 

The changes will be applied automatically.

Support multiple websites, stores, and store views

The extension allows to duplicate or copy categories with subcategories and products structure per website or store.

All categories will be duplicated according to the store view.
