In this article, you will learn how to move multiple product from one category to another. This can be extremely helpful for reorganizing or restructuring products in a new system, especially after you have made a copy of the system.
Often times, you will have a set of older products or discounts that you might still want to keep in the new system, but you might not want to have them all divided into quite a few different categories.
For organization’s sake, it can be much easier to have these products all located in another “Old Products” or “Previous Discounts” category. More on all of this below.
To move multiple products, first make sure you are on the Product Management page. Navigate to the Settings drop-down menu. Select Products to get to the Product Manage page.
