When you create a product, the status is automatically set to “published” by default. To unpublish the product, you’ll need to change its status to “unavailable ” in the Shopify products overview page. Simply click the “Actions” tab and click “Make products unavailable.”
Alternatively, during the product creation process, you are given the choice to either immediately publish your product or to publish it manually later. On the right side of the screen, click the “Manage” button under “Sales channels.” Here, you can choose whether the product is sent to your online store.
If you wish to remove a product permanently from your Shopify store, select the product, click “Actions,” and select “Delete selected products.”
