You can’t delete a product type while their are still products associated with it.
Once all your products are no longer associated with a particular product type, that type no longer exists.

So to remove a product type, you just have to change all your products that are associated with that particular product type to a different one and it will be removed automatically.

Will it actually give you the option to delete the product type? I don’t want a client to have the option to select said product type.

Mikulla,

Like dan said (and this applies today):

Once all your products are no longer associated with a particular product type, that type no longer exists.

The need to delete a non-existing type is, well, non-existent.

Fact - it does NOT delete the product types once there are no items under it.
Does it take some time beyond 10-15 minutes? If so that should have been mentioned here.
I have been refreshing, restarting, etc, for 15 minutes and none of the unused product types are gone.

As you can see here, you are wrong. Removing products does not delete them. How do we delete them?
