User rights / Capabilities: duplicate product for shop mananger

WooCommerce has a nice feature which allows you to duplicate a product and create new products starting from there. This saves a lot of time to shop managers and administrators.

But they are the only two (roles) who can duplicate products by default.

What if somebody needs the same feature, like a vendor?


There’s a filter in WooCommerce which you can use to change the capability needed to use this feature.

We know that vendors created with WooCommerce Product Vendors have the capability edit_products which allows them to edit their own products.

So, open your functions.php file located in wp-content/themes/your-theme-name/ and add this code at the end of the file:


* Allows to duplicate products with the capability edit_products
add_filter( 'woocommerce_duplicate_product_capability', create_function( '', 'return "edit_products";' ) );
view raw functions.php hosted with ❤ by GitHub


This will allow any user who has the capability edit_products to duplicate products. It includes Administrators, Shop Managers, Vendors, or any other customer user role created with other plugins.
