Hi Dan,

Although it is not possible to simply duplicate some categories, you can import necessary categories structure via CSV file. This can be done in Ecwid control panel > Catalog > Products section. Once you are there, you will need to click on the “Import products” button and then “X-Cart” tab.

As you can see in the above screenshot, you can specify your own category path separator there - you can use any character which doesn’t occur in the category names, so please do not use / as separator as you already have it in your subcategory names). You will need to use the chosen separator in your CSV file itself.

As regards the format required for categories in CSV file, here it is:

So your CSV file will look similar to my example below (I’m using semicolon as delimiter and | as category path separator there):

You can use some plain text editor to prepare a file for import and, when it’s ready, you can save it as CSV and import it into your store.
