Helped with site migration
It’s not kind of an extension you would use every day but it is worth the money spent even if used occasionally. It helped us to migrate our site and change its structure a little. I can’t even calculate the time this mod saved for us.
At first we had a few problems but support fixed them, thanks. But you’d better still create a backup before its installation and before duplicating the categories.

Helpfull but not perfect
Verry helpfull and reliable in duplicating categories, but one improvements would be fine (therefore one star is missing):
- Value of the field "is anchor" is always reseted to "no" instead of copying or asking for it. When copiing long catalog trees, thats a lot of clicking-work to do afterwards.

Awesome tool
I'm glad I've picked up this addon together with some more Amasty mods. The tool is as easy as it can be, and that's awesome, cause in our store we have to create a lot of similar categories and manually fill them with hundreds of products. Now the problem has gone, it takes me a couple of minutes to duplicate and edit a category. Thank you, guys!

Thank you, Amasty!
What would have taken me weeks to complete took me under an hour. When it comes to Magento and future work I might need, Amasty will be the first company I look to! Thank you!

The best module for categories duplicating I have found
First, i would like to thank developer(s) of "Duplicate Categories" extension.

I have looked around to find something like this, and finally i found it.

I'ts a great extension for duplicating categories. I'm using Magento 1.4.0.1 and it just work perfect.
I now can duplicate the whole root category to a new "root category" or to any of the existing "categories" with all sub-categories and product-relations without any problem.

It saved me a lot of time. : )

I would recommend using this module on 1.4 too.
You can first try a demo, if you want to, in 1.4.x.x

Great extension
Andrei installed this extension in our development environment for testing after we purchased the extension for testing. It worked perfectly! He also installed it in our production environment when we wanted to go live. This is a very responsive developer and support is great!

Perfect timesaver
I just purchased and installed this timesaver.

What can I say - It works absolutely flawless. It has been the first extension i've bought which installs without any problems, works without any problems. We are on vServer (not dedicated) and it runs perfectly. Deleting the duplicated categories have not been a problem - i tried everything out.
As always on Amasty Extensions -> No Spaghetti Code in the extension. Other extensions have messed up many things in our store, but never on Amasty's work.
