In this quick tutorial, we want to show you how to delete all WooCommerce orders at once with just a few clicks.
If you try to do it manually in WooCommerce, you can have some problems with your server because the plugin will try to delete them all at once. Also, you can spend lots of hours depending on the number of orders you have to delete.
That’s why we want to show you how to do it quickly using the WooCommerce Orders Spreadsheet. This plugin displays all your orders on a spreadsheet and allows you to apply bulk changes and do advanced searches in seconds.
Of course, you can save a lot of time because the Bulk Edit tool will allow you to delete all orders in seconds. And you can forget about server problems because the plugin applies changes in batches, so it’s perfect for small servers.
Once installed and activated, you can open the orders spreadsheet by going to WP Sheet Editor > Edit Orders. You’ll see all orders with their detailed information displayed on the spreadsheet.
Now just follow these steps:
1- Open the “Bulk Edit” tool
This tool simplifies your life because it allows you to edit thousands of orders in seconds. You can open it with one click on the toolbar.
2- Delete all orders
To delete all orders at once, you need to select these values in the Bulk Edit fields.
- Select the rows that you want to update: Edit all the rows from my current search (even non-visible rows)
- What field do you want to edit: Status
- Select type of edit: Set value
- Replace existing value with this value: Here you can select “Delete completely” or “Trash”
- Click on Execute now to delete all orders.
That was really simple!
After these two simple steps, all your orders will be deleted. You’ll now have problems with your server because the batches will give it some rest.
With the WooComerce Orders Spreadsheet plugin allows you to do advanced searches and apply massive changes in seconds! It’s really easy to use!
