Deleting Stock Items

Deleting a stock item will not only remove the stock item from the Linnworks inventory but also if that stock item is also linked to sales channel listings, this linking will be broken when the stock item is deleted. Please note that the listing is unaffected, orders that are downloaded from the channel for the item will be unlinked. This is represented as a red question mark icon. In the case that the listing was made through, the template will also be removed.

  • If the user doesn't have permission for removing/deleting items from My Inventory The user will have not access to this type of Import
