If you need to create a new product in your X-Cart store and know that you already have a similar one in the catalog, you can clone it not to fill out all the required product details.

To create a product by cloning:

  1. On the product listing page of your store's Admin area (Catalog > Products), select the product(s) you want to clone.

  2. Choose to clone the selected product(s) with the "Clone selected" tool.


  3. Confirm your intention to clone the selected product(s) when prompted.

    • If you select several products, you will be redirected to the Cloned tab of the product listing page (Catalog > Products > Cloned), where you will see the list of cloned products available for further editing.

    • If you select one product for cloning, you will be redirected to the cloned product details page for editing.

    NOTE: The store will create an exact copy of the selected product(s) and autogenerate the name and SKU based on the original SKU with the addition of "-clone-N," where N is the clone number id. the rest of the info will be identical.

  4. Edit the information of the clone product(s) as you require.
    The Cloned tab of the Products page (Catalog > Products > Cloned) allows quick editing of the product SKU, name, and price.

    To edit other details, use the Pencil icon to the right.

  5. Save the changes to make them active.
