Product SKUs cannot be deleted. This allows ShippingEasy to maintain integrity in its database and reports.
However, if you have Products that you wish to exclude from your catalog, you can mark a SKU as inactive. This will cause ShippingEasy to ignore the saved SKU values and orders will rely on the information pulling in from your store for specific SKUs. Any product marked as inactive will not be reactivated if orders with the same SKU syncs in, nor will any of its information be updated.
How to mark individual products as inactive from the main PRODUCT CATALOG page:
- From the navigation menu, go to the PRODUCTS then PRODUCT CATALOG.
- On the PRODUCTS page, click the name of the product you want to make inactive.
- On the Product details page, click the grey Edit button.
- On the EDIT Products page, uncheck the box next to Active in the lower right corner of the page.
- Click the Save Product button to complete the process.
How to mark multiple products as inactive from the main PRODUCT CATALOG page:

The selected products should disappear from your Active product list and place it into your Inactive product list. To view your Inactive products, use the Active filter on the left side of the Products page to select Inactive.
