+ TO DELETE/DISABLE A PRODUCT

If a product is temporarily out of stock or temporarily unavailable, rather than deleting it, you can "Disable" it so that the informaiton stays in the backend, but that product won't show up in the store to shoppers.

If a product is discontinued and won't be brought back, deleting is the better option.

  • Click on the "Edit Product" button right next to the price
