Hi, I'm a newbie to Shopify,I run the store through the Shopify API.

Now,I want to delete all products quickly,then upload new products.

The key point of this case is that I have 80k+ products in store, I only found a API to delete product per request one by one or delete them by operating on admin page,but it also only 50 or 50+(I don't know what actually is the number of that ).Now the operating of bulk delete on page is dosen't work :(

Hi, I have the same issue.

 

I did exactly what Rockpapercopy posted and clicked on Products->All Products->Clicked the select Checkbox -> clicked on "select all 50+ products from your store" -> confirm -> then I sleected the action "delete selected products" and confirmed it.

Then it says "deleting products in background" and nothing happens. I can leave the page open, I can trigger this job 10 times, I can refresht the page, nothing happens, not a single item is being deleted. I even tried to trigger the job and leave the page open "Over night" and still... no result at all.

When I open the details page of any product and click on "delete" and confirm it, the deletion works but this cant be an option as I have to delete 60k products here I want to upload anew.

I also lost the shopify article-id references in my own database which means I cannot delete them by API anymore.

Please help to solve this issue, thanks.

Hey @TR 

It seems like deleting all products from Shopify seems to be a sort of struggle.
If you are open to using apps, then we can offer you to use the Excelify app. There you can easily bulk export all Product base information to excel, mark all of them with a "Command" - DELETE and import the file back with the Excelify. 

That will delete all the Products listed in the exported file.

Here is our tutorial that explains exactly how to do this - Bulk delete Shopify Products.

 

The price of the app and doing this depend on how many items you will need to export/import. For that, you can check out our "Pricing" page.

 

If you have any questions regarding the app you can always contact us by any means listed in our "Contact Us" page.
