If you try to delete orders in the backend, you will find out that you can only set the status to “cancelled” and the order is still there. Unfortunately, Magento doesn’t allow us to delete those via administration, so you will not find any “Delete order” button. This can be quite frustrating both to developers and the merchants.

You need to create php script in Magento root folder, copy this code into script and run script.

After you have it executed, the test orders will not be in the database any more.

So keep in mind that this will delete ALL orders, in the database. So, you should execute this queries immediately after launch.

This script is tested on following Magento versions: 1.6.1.0 CE, 1.6.0.0 CE, 1.5.1.0. CE, 1.11.0.2 EE, 1.10.0.2 EE, 1.9.0.0 EE, 1.11.0.0 PE, 1.10.0.2 PE and 1.9.0.0 PE.

Enjoy the coding 🙂
