Data Loader delete contacts
Currently, with DL you cannot delete contacts (but you *can* delete orders).
Would be nice to be able to use DL to delete contacts, and yes, if a contact is delete it would/should cascade.
Data Loader does offer a Delete option, within the Import Contacts job type.
When setting up your import, navigate to the Configuration tab and open the General section. One of the options is Import Action, and the choices are Add, Delete, Update, Add & Update.
If this is not working as expected I would recommend reaching out to our Support Department for assistance.
Thanks so much!
