Managing collections on your sales channels

After you create a collection, you need to make sure that it is available on the sales channels that you use. You can also specify a future date when the collection will be published.

Change the availability of a collection

You can publish or hide a collection from your active sales channels by changing the collection's availability settings. There are a few reasons that you might want to hide a collection:

  • It's a collection of seasonal or sale products that you want to make available for only part of the year.
  • You want to sell only one type of product with a particular sales channel.
  • The products in the collection don't meet the eligibility requirements for a particular sales channel.

You can set a specific publishing date for a collection to become available in your online store.
