I have a website with categories & products. Some of the categories & products also have images attached.

I want to:

  1. Export all the categories & products.
  2. Delete all the categories & products from another website.
  3. Import the first exported categories & products into this new website.

Is there a fast way to do this?

P.S.2 My other websites are cloned. They have the same attributes.

P.2.3 I need to do this without any purchased tools.

How to import categories

By default, there is no way to import/export categories in Magento. You have to use free mageworks extension to do such process. Install this into your system. After installation, you can export from Mageworks->Export profiles.
