How to activate product on Shopify?
Updated over a week ago

Activating a product on Shopify channels involves making your products available for sale on various sales channels like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Amazon, eBay, and more. Here's a general step-by-step guide on how to activate a product on Shopify channels:

  1. Access Your Shopify Admin: Log in to your Shopify admin panel using your credentials.

  2. Add or Edit a Product: If you're adding a new product, go to the "Products" section and click "Add product." If you're editing an existing product, find the product you want to make available on channels and click on it to edit.

  3. Product Details: Fill in or edit all the necessary product details, including title, description, price, and images. Make sure your product is well-optimized for selling on multiple channels.

  4. Variants (if applicable): If your product has multiple variants (e.g., different sizes or colors), ensure that you set up the variants correctly and provide unique details for each variant.

  5. Inventory: Set the inventory settings for your product, including stock levels and whether to track inventory. This is important for managing stock levels on each channel.

  6. Pricing: Review and adjust your pricing strategy as needed. Consider any channel-specific pricing or discounts.

  7. Visibility: Scroll down to the "Sales channels" section on the product page. Here, you can manage which sales channels you want the product to appear on. By default, your product is usually visible on your online store, but you can expand to other channels by clicking "Manage" under "Add sales channel."

  8. Activate Sales Channels: In the "Manage sales channel" pop-up, you'll see a list of available sales channels. Check the boxes next to the channels where you want your product to be available for sale. Some channels might require additional setup, like connecting your Shopify store to your social media accounts or marketplaces.

  9. Channel-Specific Settings: Depending on the channel, you might need to configure some specific settings or provide additional information. Follow the prompts and instructions provided by Shopify for each channel.

  10. Save and Publish: Once you've configured all the settings and activated the desired sales channels, click the "Save" or "Save and publish" button to make your product live on those channels. Be sure to review your product listings on each channel to ensure they display correctly.

  11. Monitor and Manage: Regularly monitor the performance of your products on each channel and make adjustments as needed. You can track sales, inventory levels, and customer feedback through your Shopify admin.

Remember that the specific steps and options may vary slightly depending on the version of Shopify you're using and the sales channels you want to activate. Always refer to the latest Shopify documentation or reach out to Shopify support for channel-specific guidance and updates.
