In order to create a copy of a product in the store catalog, locate the product in the database using the product search mechanism, and use one of the two methods:

  1. In the search results page place a checkmark to the left from the product name and click on the 'Clone selected' button. Once the product is cloned, you get redirected back to the search results page which now contains the clone of the original product as well. Using this method you can clone multiple products simultaneously by placing several checkmarks in the corresponding fields.
  2. Click on the name of the product in the search results screen, and then in the 'Product info' screen click on the 'Clone' button. Once the product is cloned, you get redirected to the screen, which contains the details of the cloned product.

Duplicate products are created in the same categories as the original ones and have all the parameters identical to the original products, except for the product names, which have the marker '(CLONE)' added to them (Figure 5-22).
