Deleting tags on Shopify is an easy process. Once you open your chosen product page, all you need to do is click on the (X) sign next to the tag text and then click on the save button. You can also bulk-delete tags by selecting all the products and clicking “Remove tags”.

Deleting Shopify tags from products, orders & more

You can remove tags from anywhere you originally placed them. Whether the tags are associated with products, transfers, blog posts, orders, customers, or draft orders, you can remove them using the same three easy steps.

  1. Open the product page or the tagged item (transfers, customer, order, draft order, or blog post) you want to alter.
  2. Next to the tag you want to remove, you should see the symbol “X“. Click on it. 
  3. Click on “Save“. The tag will disappear.
  4. You will need to remove that same tag from all products to completely delete that tag from your Shopify.
