Permanently Deleting Products in WooCommerce


On occasion, you may need to permanently delete products from your WooCommerce site. Because these products exist in multiple locations (WooCommerce, the integrator, and your PoS system), we want to be absolutely sure they are deleted correctly. In this article we'll show you how to make sure the products you're deleting are deleted permanently.

Permanently Deleting Products

In order to permanently delete a product, you'll want to make sure you have the product SKU on hand. From the Modern Retail Integrator page on you WooCommerce back end, you'll want to head to the Scripts menu pictured below.


As you can see, there are three tabs at the top of the Scripts page. Click on the one labelled Search by SKU to proceed. Enter the SKU for the product you want to delete (enable the Show Variations checkbox to make sure you get each of the product variants). From there, click on the Delete permanently button in the Post ID column to delete the product. Make sure you double check the product SKU to make sure you're deleting the correct product.

That's how you can delete products permanently in WooCommerce! If you have any additional questions, pleas feel free to contact us with a support request in the Admin Panel.
