In this article you can find information on how you can deactivate live products according to your connection type

Options for deactivating live product

  1. Set the stock availability to 0
  2. Change the status to inactive
  3. Delete the product

A deactivated product is not visible on the website and it is not possible to add it to the shopping cart. It can only be traced by the MALL ID.
By setting the stock availability to 0, the website will displays "Sold out", and when the status is set to inactive, the website displays "Currently unavailable".

One option is also to completely delete the product. Please use this option only when you wish to permanently exclude the product from your portfolio. Repeatedly deleting and uploading products puts a significant strain on the system. Therefore, to deactivate a product we recommend using options the first two options.

Manual deactivation in the MALL Partner portal – only for Manual connection

Products can be deactivated manually only by partners with Manual Input connection. This option is not available to other connection types because the automatic feed synchronization and API immediately rewrite any changes made manually.

Instructions for manual connection can be found here.

Setting stock availability to 0 can be done by quick editing in the product overview list or directly in the product detail and in case of product variants, in the detail of each variant.

Setting the status to inactive can be done in the product list.

Deactivation of products for Heureka XML feed connection

For connecting Heureka with an XML feed it is not possible to use the product setting method as inactive as with other types of connections.
It can be deactivated by setting zero inventory in the availability feed or complete deleting a product from the product feed.

Another way to deactivate the product works only for Heureka XML feed and is enabled by the function product management.

This feature moves products between categories. To deactivate a product, just use the inactive category. We have prepared a CSV with the invalid category and you can download it here:

Procedure:

  • Download the CSV template for deactivating products and fill in the first column with your product IDs that you need to deactivate (attention: the category under the ID "SMAZAT_PRODUKT" must be listed for each product ID)
  • Follow the instructions for moving products to upload the file.

After uploading, a list of products to be moved (deactivated) will be displayed.

Since this setup is done manually, we strongly recommend the process switch to live to be done with full care to prevent these situations.
