How to Change Your Product Visibility in Shopify

You may have a number of reasons to don the old invisibility cloak. Whether your item is no longer in season, a product is out of stock, or you want to offer exclusive in-store products, you have the option to hide your products from view.

Once the season or inventory comes around, you might want to change product visibility. Let’s get to it.

Step #1: Go to your Shopify Admin and click “Products”:

Step #3: Click the name of the product to edit or if you are adding a new product, click “Add a product”:

Step #4: In the Visibility section, check “Online Store” to make the product visible within the store. If you uncheck this box, then the product will be hidden from the store:

Step #5: Click “Save” to save your changes:

Changing the visibility of your products from your online store is very simple. If you keep track of which items are visible when you are out of a product, the hassle of refunding customers will be avoided.

Happy Shopifying!

    You could also use inventory tracking so it’s not shown when out of stock – though you might still want to hide the item for other reasons that you mention.

    (Our product recommendations app makes sure we don’t recommend out-of-stock items, by the way!)
