To duplicate a WordPress/WooCommerce plugin, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Find the plugin file in your WordPress plugin directory. This can usually be found in the "/wp-content/plugins/" folder.
  2. Create a new folder in the "/wp-content/plugins/" folder with a unique name for your duplicated plugin.
  3. Copy all the files from the original plugin folder into the new folder you created.
  4. Rename the main plugin file to match the folder name. For example, if your folder is named "my-duplicated-plugin", rename the main plugin file to "my-duplicated-plugin.php".
  5. Open the main plugin file with a text editor and update the plugin information such as the plugin name, version, author, etc. This is important for differentiation between the original plugin and the duplicated one.
  6. Activate the duplicated plugin in the WordPress admin dashboard under the Plugins section.
  7. Test the duplicated plugin to ensure that it is working correctly and does not interfere with the original plugin.


By following these steps, you should be able to successfully duplicate a WordPress/WooCommerce plugin.
