How can i clear all the products and services?

I had mistakenly create around 400 products and i don't want to make them inactive each of them. How can i permanently delete all of it.
I don't have problem if everything is erase.


Hi aveshnaik007 ,

Let me help you delete your products and services.

Making a product or service item inactive will not completely delete it. It will only be excluded from your data so that it won’t show on your reports and when creating transactions.

To permanently delete them, you can wipe or purge all your data including transactions, customers, suppliers, and so on.  If you still won’t mind erasing all your data you can follow the steps below. Make sure your account is not more than 90 days old. Otherwise, you won’t be able to purge it.

Here are the steps to purge:

  1. Go to your Dashboard.
  2. On the address bar, change the word “homepage” to “purgecompany”. Example:
  3. Press Enter.
  4. Review the data and some important notes.
  5. Type YES at the bottom right corner of the page.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Enter the correct information on the next page.
  8. Click Wipe Data.

Once you’re done with the step, you will be redirected to the dashboard with your data already wiped.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
