KB: How to delete SKUs in bulk

Scenario

I have a lot of SKUs that I no longer need and I would like to delete them all at the same time

Solution

Deleting items in Linnworks can be done using a specific import type called Delete. Firstly, prepare a CSV file with a column for SKU, no other information is required.

  • Navigate to Settings > Import Data
  • Click  Import Now
  • For the Import Type, select Delete and for the Sub Type, select Delete Stock Item
  • Click Next
  • Click Choose Template and select the prepared CSV file
  • Map the column to SKU, if it didn't automatically map and click  Run Now

Please Note! This will also break any links to listings mapped to this SKU. Deleted SKUs cannot be undeleted, they will need to be re-created including all associated extended properties, listing mapping, images, supplier details and channel specific titles, descriptions and prices.
