Hiding products is not uncommon in eCommerce. Whether it’s a retail or wholesale store, out of stock or suspension of a product happens all the time.
Its causes could be simple or complex depending on the circumstances.
Some websites hide products because they are not able to supply and produce that specific product anymore. Others hide the item simply because that item is not profitable enough to be featured on the website. Others could just want to simply put the item away, especially if it’s a fashion item since the season or trend is already over for the year.
Whatever the reason, it’s pretty understandable for a store owner to want to hide their products so badly on Shopify. Most of them often choose to hide the products temporarily or permanently depending on their wishes.
In some cases, besides temporarily hiding the product, the store owner also redirects the product page to the store homepage. This particular practice isn’t recommended since it could result in confused and unhappy customers and end up being a negative for the search result.
