Can I Archive Products in Shopify?

Yes, you can archive products in Shopify. Archiving a product means that it will no longer be visible in your online store, but you can still access it and make changes if needed.

To archive a product in Shopify, follow these steps:

Step 1: Log in to your Shopify admin panel and go to the Products page.

Step 2: Click on the product you want to archive.

Step 3: In the product's details page, scroll down to the "Organization" section and click on the "Archive" button.

Step 4: Confirm that you want to archive the product.

Step 5: If you need to access the archived product in the future, you can find it by clicking on the "Filter" button in the Products page and selecting "Archived" from the drop-down menu.

NOTE: that archiving a product does not delete it from your Shopify store. If you want to completely remove a product from your store, you can delete it instead of archiving it. To do so, follow the same steps as above, but click on the "Delete" button instead of "Archive".

The Takeaway

A clean store is a happy store. Don’t hoard because you think you “may” need it in the future.

You should aim to “clean” your store at least every quarter. This means deleting images, removing products, and any unnecessary scripts, and processes.
