Deleting SKUs

Steps to delete your SKUs

  • Log into your MercadoLibre CBT account,
  • Go to Flat File > Upload Files,
  • Select "Delete SKU",
  • Select the file from your computer,
  • Click "Upload".

To delete a SKU, you will need to reference your MercadoLibre Product ID (MPID). You can find the MPID by downloading a snapshot of your inventory from the File Download section or by downloading the success file from the File Upload section.

The MPID is our unique reference to your SKUs. It is the key to your products while interacting with the MercadoLibre platform. You can access your MPID by downloading a snapshot of your inventory.

To delete a SKU, the only required field is the MPID.

Once we have processed the file, we will indicate its status on the Flat File interface. These are the available statuses:

  • Pending: File is in the processing queue, but we have not yet begun to process it.
  • Processing: We have started processing the file.
  • Success: We have processed the file and successfully deleted SKUs from MercadoLibre CBT
  • Error: We have processed the file but found errors

Once we have processed your file, you can download a response file from the Flat File interface. If we successfully processed your file, the success response file will contain your SKU and its reference MPID (MercadoLibre Product ID).

If we find errors while processing your file, an error file will be generated that will contain the SKU and the error message.

It is normal for a file to have both a success response file and an error response file. For example, if you tried to delete one hundred SKUs, we would send you a success file indicating that ninety SKUs were successfully deleted and a response file indicating that ten SKUs could not be deleted because we didn't find them in the system.
