Because if you need to do this, this is going to save you so much time to be able to just wipe all of your products and do a reimport, right, or whatever your reason is, if you have a lot of products, and you delete them, you know that you need to do it.

You know, and if you have 50,000 products in there, that's just not going to cut it, you need to wipe it.

Let me show you the easy way.

So you go to products, product categories.

All you got to do is click to select all of your categories.

And click the trashcan.

Now this will delete your categories.

So I'm assuming that you're okay with deleting your categories.

I assume that when you run the report, it's going to recreate your categories.

But this is the easy way as you delete all the categories.

And it says that these categories contain 46 products or in your case, maybe 50,000 products.

Do you want to reassign these to another category, which is what you would normally do if you're just legit deleting a category because you don't want the category?

But in this case, we're trying to delete all these products.

So let's just choose to delete the products in all these categories that we're deleting, which is effectively all of the products in your store at once.

Boom, they go.

Products view products.

Nothing is left.

I hope this is a huge time saver for you guys.
