1. Auto Publish Products  - It only publishes the product for the variant quantity that is more than zero only.

  • Do not apply: Don't make any changes

    For example: If you don't want to make any changes to publish the products you can select this as no changes.

  • All products in store: Auto publish all products in store if any one of the variants has a quantity of more than zero.

    For example: In your store having 50 products that have more than zero quantity, it will publish all the 50 products in your store. 

  • Matching products within a feed fileAuto publish all matching products within the feed file but the variant quantity should be more than zero

    For example: if the feed that scans the quantity is more than zero, it will auto publish all the products. If the supplier feeds updated 10 products with more than zero quantity, it will publish those 10 products. 





2. Auto hide product for all sales channels - It only hides the product for the variant quantity is zero and the continued selling out of stock should be disabled


The products that you would like to hide should disable this option in Shopify admin. Can refer to this article  Continue selling when out of stock to know more.

This option is actually for only hiding the products from the online store instead of hiding products from all sales channels


For example: One of your products is in all sales channels like Facebook, Instagram, and so on. If you want to hide only in the online store so you just need to enable this option after selecting Auto hide product for all sales channels.
