Delete WooCommerce Products by Stock, Name, Date Modified, etc. Without Import
In WooCommerce, deleting products in bulk is performed via their Bulk Actions > Move to Trash feature. Also, WooCommerce allows filtering products by category, product type, or stock availability and then deleting the filtered records.
But you may also need to delete products based on other criteria, for example: stock quantity (less or greater than…), product name containing some word (like “test”), products which have a sale price and more.
