Product 2:

Note – In order to delete variations, you need to filter the Product type as ‘Variable (Variation)’ in the Filter tab. Also, you can filter the products based on your requirements. Here, I am filtering the products based on their categories as well. Check the screenshot below:

Once you have filtered the Product type as Variable (Variation), you will be able to view all the variations of the filtered products on the Preview tab.

If you want to keep any variation without deleting it, you can uncheck that specific product variation. To delete all the variations, you can proceed to the next step.

On the Edit page, you can go to the Delete option. There will be two options available when you click the drop-down list such as ‘Move to Trash’ and ‘Delete permanently’. You can select an option as per your requirement.

In our example, we will be deleting the variations permanently so we will select the Delete Permanently option and continue.

Once we finish the job of deleting variation, on our Product page, we will now see that all the Variations which we selected have been deleted.
