Sometimes it is necessary to bulk move all WooCommerce products from one category to another. If this situation ever arises, either due to error or poor planning, the Term Management Tools plugin is an easy solution.
This tutorial will show you how to merge all of the products in a category into another existing category. If you want to change the category of a selected group of products, please see the article How to Bulk Edit WooCommerce Products in WordPress.
Go to the WooCommerce Product Categories admin page:
Products > Categories
Click the two category checkboxes to be merged together (or multiple categories you want to merge into one category).
Once the categories have been checked, click on “Merge” in the Bulk Actions drop-down menu.
You will be given an input box to type the name of the category you are merging into. This is the name of one of the existing categories you have checked. When you are done click the “Apply” button.
NOTE: Only the specified category will be kept. The other checked categories will be removed.
This is a handy tool for quickly moving ALL products at once from one WooCommerce category to another.
If you would like to change the categories of selected products, you can find instructions in the article How to Bulk Edit WooCommerce Products in WordPress.
