Automatically Unpublish (Hide) Out Of Stock Products And Show Them When Back In Stock in Shopify by Using
Mr. Arigato Task Automator
If you don't want to show products you don't have in stock, this workflow is for you. When it comes back in stock, the product will reappear in your store.
You can now import the ".arigato" workflow file you downloaded into the app.
- Open the Mr. Arigato - Task Automator app in your Shopify admin.
- Visit the "Import & Export" page within the app.
- Scroll to bottom and upload your file to import the workflow.
This workflow fires when a product is updated. It checks if the inventory quantity has recently changed and that the total available quantity is zero. Then, it unpublishes the product and adds a tag for tracking this change. Additionally, the workflow listens for the product to go back in stock. If it finds the item has stock again, it will republish the product and remove the tracking tag.
This workflow can be customized to only fire for certain products or other custom conditions, but it also works well "right out of the box".
