Sometimes, there is a need for us to let go of the things that we are holding on. On your Shopify store, you have an option to delete a single product or delete multiple products at once using a bulk action. Please be advised that when you delete a product, it's permanently removed from Shopify and deleted products can't be restored. If you run out of stock or no longer want to display a product for any reason, but don’t want to permanently delete it from your store, then you can hide the product instead.
There are quite a few reasons why we need to remove an item from our shop. Whatever the reason be, we will walk you through on how to do it per item and by bulk.
Delete a Product
1. What you need to do first is to access the Shopify Admin. Login to your Shopify account at http://www.shopify.com.
2. Click the Products section on the left side to access all the products that you have listed.
3. Just Click on the Product Name to access the product information page.
4. Once you're in and you have confirmed that this is the product that needs to be deleted, then scroll down to the bottom and look for the Delete Product button.
5. It will give you a pop-up prompt that this is irreversible. Please be advised that once you have deleted the product, you can no longer retrieve it. So once you confirm that you really wanted to delete this then click the Delete Product button.
It should give you a black callout at the bottom saying that the product has been deleted.
3. Look for the products that you wanted to delete and select it by Putting a Check on it.
4. Click the Actions Drop-down and select Delete Selected Products on the menu.
5. A pop-up will show up informing you that you can't recover deleted products. So if you're absolutely sure that these are the products that you want to delete, then just click the Delete button to continue.
It should say Deleting Products In The Background while it is still processing it. The products will be automatically removed from the list.
So that is how you remove a product on Shopify. If you decide to just hide a product from your Online Store, watch out for our next tutorial.
