I can assign multiple products into a category when I am creating a category, but how can I assign a category to multiple products at once?

I have tried to check multiple products in Manage Products and then Update attribues but I cannot edit category from there. I have also tried Manage Categories too.

  • I did everything but i am not getting products under category, please help me. thanking you in advance – user3008 Aug 22 '13 at 5:07
  • In your backend, go to Catalog -> Categories -> Manage Categories.
  • Select the category you want to add products to.
  • Click "Category Products" Tab
  • Reset the Filter, select your products, Save Category

Addition to Erfan's answer:

If there had been no products assigned to category before, there would be no products at all listed under "Category Products" tab.

Reset the Filter - clicking it is a must even when you see blank list (no products assigned). It will then show all products in whole shop.


An easier option would be - Mass Category Assignment, under manage categories. Helps you allot products throught a CSV file.

  • Is that a part of core Magento 1.x, or maybe a 3rd party extension? I don't see that option in – Eric Seastrand May 11 '17 at 18:11
  • Yes that has got to be a third party extension. – shaune Jun 8 '17 at 21:30
  • your answer is wrong as it suggest to use a third party extension without even name it ... – Fra Oct 27 '17 at 4:17
