Deleting Discontinued Products?

We need to clean up our database and would like to delete some discontinued products. However, with other inventory management systems, if we deleted a product in our system, it affected reports of previous completed sales, etc.

Will the same thing happen if I delete products in Shopify? 

Thanks!

Hi Ktpupp,

Stephen a Shopify Guru here :)

You can remove any discontinued products from your store removing these products will not change any of your previous orders or reports.

Hope that helps, feel free to drop us a line at support@shopify.com if you have any other questions.

Hi @Stephen_T  or Shopify staff, when you say feel free to "remove" as it won't affect orders or reports, just double-checking you mean delete forever.
