      Items/products that has been created in the search result by searching the vendor, won’t be deleted after the vendor is deleted or got a lower rank (e.g. Customer).

      By-default when you delete the vendor/author then product will not deleted, the vendor’s products goes to “draft” status.
      If you want delete vendor’s product if the vendor is deleted,

      Add this code to your child theme’s functions.php
      In case you do not have child theme then add code using this plugin –

      add_action('delete_user', 'my_delete_user');
      function my_delete_user($user_id) {	
      	if(wcfm_is_vendor($user_id)) {
      	    $args = array (
      	        'numberposts' => -1,
      	        'post_type' => 'product', //for all posts by this user: posts, pages, attachments, etc.. use post_type => "any"
      	        'author' => $user_id
      	    $user_posts = get_posts($args);
      	    if (empty($user_posts)) return;
      	    foreach ($user_posts as $user_post) {
      	        wp_delete_post($user_post->ID, true);
