The My Account section allows you to manage the administration of your Hike account, including purging, or permanently deleting, data from Hike.
As you will see, there are significant changes that anyone with Admin access can make to your Hike account.
We strongly suggest you take this into consideration when deciding which staff will have Cashier, Manager, and Admin access.
On the My Account page, you can view the Purge Data section.
Use this to permanently delete your products, sale-related data, customers, suppliers. Mostly used to clear test data created during the trial period. Not advised for actual transactions. Also, please note that it won't help in case you would like to clear all the data and bring it from a third-party platform. If that's what you want, please contact our support team before taking the action.
IMPORTANT!!! Once purged, selected data will be removed permanently. This operation cannot be undone.
