How to delete products in bulk


Deleting multiple products in bulk.

To delete many products at once we need to set the products to inactive through a CSV, XLSX or XLS file export/import and then delete all inactive products.


  • Vend for Mac or PC 


Exporting your product list

  1. Navigate to Catalog -> Products
  2. Click Export List
  3. Download exported CSV or XLSX file

Setting the products to inactive

Important: Make sure you remove all inventory columns from this spreadsheet before reimporting it.

  1. Open the file
  2. Scroll across to the Active column header in the file you exported
  3. Change the '1' to a '0' for each product you are deleting
  4. Save the file
  5. In Vend, Click Products
  6. Click Import
  7. Import your file by drag and dropping or by searching for the file location

Deleting the inactive products

  1. Navigate to Catalog -> Products
  2. Filter the status drop-down from Active to Inactive.
  3. At the top right, Click Delete all inactive products
