Manage your products with statuses
Product statuses help you manage and organize products as you're getting ready to sell them, or retiring the ones you no longer sell.
Use the draft product status to work on products at your own pace until you're ready to make them available. Once you've got all of the details down, set the product status as active, so your products can be made available to customers through selected sales channels and apps. Use archive for products that you no longer sell to keep your product lists organized and free from clutter without losing the information for these products.
