The products hub suppliers add will display on the hub's storefront and be available for customers to purchase.
Note: This is a step hub suppliers can do independently from their own account, direct them to our Hub Supplier User Guide for instruction. However if required, a hub administrator can add products on behalf a supplier and assign it to them.

Note: If you do not wish to Track Inventory, deselect this field by clicking to green check mark. Once a product is set up to track inventory it cannot be reversed.
If your product only available for specific seasons or time frames (example, Ontario asparagus season runs from May to June), you can enter it with the calendar picker. If it's not presently May or June, customers will not be able to order it.
You can choose to manually remove products from your available products by switching the toggle to “Off.” It will remain in the catalogs you've added it to, but will not be visible to customers or available for purchase.
If turned off, this item will be visible to you and grey in colour.
Best Practice: As a best practice and to preserve the accuracy of your historical data, don't edit existing product details. If a product requires a change, disable its visibility and add a new product with the updated details. Likewise, don't delete a product if you no longer wish it to display on your storefront. Instead, just unassign it from a catalog or disable its visibility.
