Archiving Products

This article describes the product archival process within Stock&Buy.

As your business grows, you may discontinue a particular product or brand of products. While deleting products can be a viable option for you to hide the discontinued items, it might not be ideal. Deleting products will remove them from your sales history and historical inventory data. Another viable option would be to archive the products you do not carry anymore and hide them from your inventory listing.

Archive a product

Steps:

  1. From your Stock&Buy account, click on Inventory
  2. Click the product you would like to archive. This action will open the product details page
  3. Click Archive under dropdown options next to the Save option

The product will automatically change its state to Archived and will disappear from your inventory listing.

View archived products

Archived products are hidden from the inventory listing but are still kept in the background. You can view all archived products by:

  1. From your Stock&Buy account, click on Inventory
  2. At the top left corner of the inventory page, click on Filters
  3. Set “Would you like to show archived products?” to ON
  4. Click Apply

The actions above will display your full inventory listing including archived products. Archived products will have a tag “Archived” next to their name.

Unarchive a product

Steps:

  1. From your Stock&Buy account, click on Inventory
  2. Click the product you would like to archive. This action will open the product details page
  3. Click Restore from archive under dropdown options next to the Save option
