product, categories and manufacturer bulk transfer in Opencart

Portal 1 or store 1 is from where you are copying the categories and portal 2 or store 2 is to where you are copying the categories.

After choosing the portals or stores, you will be able to see the list of categories that are not already in portal 2.

For eg. if Desktop is already in portal 2 then it will not show in the list.

If you don’t want to transfer some of the category then unchecked the checkbox and click save. Unchecked will not be transferred.
