If you created sample data while setting up your store, it is possible that you created some attributes that aren&rsqou;t really needed for your catalog. To ensure that you have access to the full number of attributes that you have available in your plan, you can delete any attributes that you don’t need.
When an attribute is deleted, it is removed from any related products and attribute sets. System attributes are part of the core functionality of your store and cannot be deleted.
To delete an attribute:
- On the Admin menu, select Catalog > Manage Attributes.
- In the attribute list, click to open the attribute that you want to delete.
- Click the Delete Attribute button to remove this attribute from your store.
- When prompted to confirm, click OK.
