I am wanting to refresh the products in my store and first want to delete all the existing products. I have 50,000+ products. Having tried some small batches it seems to be taking around 1.5 seconds per product so i am looking at 22 hours of so to purge my store.
- does this seem normal in terms of timescales for bulk deletion?
- is there any way this can be speeded up?
Thanks in advance
Deleting thousands of products from your store will take some time. From my experience, probably a couple hours per thousand. And it seems to me at times that the operation stalls out and it helps to reinitiate the deleting process after several hours. It can take all day to remove tens of thousands of products.
