If you want to keep a product hidden from your customers on Shopify, there are a few different ways you can do it. You can either hide the product completely or make it visible only to certain customers.
Why Would You Want to Hide Products?
There are a few reasons you might want to hide products in your shop. Maybe you’re selling digital products and don’t want physical products to show up in your store. Or maybe you’re selling products on consignment and only want the items that are currently in stock to be visible. Whatever the reason, Shopify makes it easy to hide products from your store.
To hide a product, go to your Shopify admin and click on Products. Find the product you want to hide and click Edit. Under the Visibility section, select “Hidden”. Save your changes and the product will be hidden from your store.
If you ever need to unhide the product, simply go back and edit the product again. Under the Visibility section, select “Visible” and save your changes. The product will then be visible in your store once again.
The Different Ways to Hide Products In Shopify
There are a few different ways that you can hide products in Shopify. You can either use the built-in functionality or you can use a third-party app. Let’s take a look at both options.
Shopify has a built-in setting that allows you to hide products from your store. To do this, go to your product’s page and click on the “Visibility” option. From there, you can select “Do Not Display This Product” and save your changes.
If you want more control over which products are visible in your store, you can use a third-party app. There are a few different apps available, but we recommend using the “Product Hider” app by VITAVERDE Co. This app allows you to create rules that determine which products are visible in your store. For example, you could create a rule that hides all products that are out of stock.
Using either of these methods, you can easily hide products in Shopify. However, it’s important to note that hidden products are still accessible if someone knows the direct URL. So, if you’re trying to keep certain products hidden from the public, it’s best to use a password-protected page.
Hiding Products from Specific Collections
If you want to hide products from specific collections on your Shopify store, there are a few different ways you can do this.
One way is to go into the collection settings for each collection that you want to hide products from and deselect the products that you don’t want to appear in that collection.
Another way is to create a new collection and only add the products that you want to appear in it. This can be done by going to the Collections page in your Shopify admin and selecting ‘Create Collection’ from the dropdown menu.
You can also hide products from your store’s homepage by unchecking the ‘Featured’ box for each product in the Homepage section of your Shopify admin.
Hiding Products from the Online Store
If you need to hide a product from your online store for any reason, follow these steps:
1. Log into your Shopify admin.
2. Go to Products.
3. Find the product you want to hide and click Edit.
4. In the Visibility section, select Private and save your changes.
Products that are set to private are not visible on your online store, but can still be accessed and purchased through the direct URL.
Hiding Out of Stock Products
If you’re looking to hide products in your Shopify store that are out of stock, there are a few different ways you can go about doing this.
One way is to simply delete the product from your store. However, if you think there’s a chance the product may come back in stock at some point, you can choose to unpublish the product instead. This will remove it from your store frontend, but keep the product information and settings intact so you can easily publish it again later.
To unpublish a product:
1. From your Shopify admin, go to Products > All products.
2. Find the product that you want to unpublish, and then click Edit.
3. In the Visibility section, click Unpublish.
4. Click Save.
Another way to hide out of stock products is by using a “Hide out of stock products” app from the Shopify App Store. This app will add a setting to your theme that allows you to globally hide all products that are out of stock, or only those products that are low in stock.
There you have it! A few simple tips on how to hide products in Shopify. By following these steps, you can keep your inventory organized and tidy, and ensure that only the products you want customers to see are displayed on your shopfront. So go ahead and give it a try!
