In some cases, you may want to publish a product to your Ecommerce solution that isn’t quite ready for shoppers to see. For instance a product that will need a long description or is missing photos.
Accumula allows you to control the visibility of your products using the Keyword fields on the Web tab of the Product Card in Lightspeed Onsite.
NOTE: For products that already exist online, this feature is controlled by the Update Visibility switch in your Accumula settings.
Adding the word “hidden” to a keyword field will instruct your Accumula integration to adjust the visibility of the product in Magento or Shopify. When Hidden, the product will not be visible to your shoppers.
Magento and Shopify respond differently to the hidden keyword.
Shopify Users: Matrix Child Products (Variants) not affected by the “Hidden” flag. Setting a Parent Product to “Hidden” will automatically hide all of its associated Child products.
There are two methods to make the product visible again:
- Update Visibility Set to ON: Remove the hidden keyword in Lightspeed.
- Update Visibility Set to OFF: Adjust the hidden status in your ecommerce solution's admin area.
