Marking your products as active allows you sync your products with your buyers and list on their stores.
First, you'll need you to sync your products into Convictional. To sync your products, connect your platform.
If you have already connected your platform or setup products, they will be visible in the Products tab.
Marking Products As Active
To determine whether your products have synced into Convictional, head to the Products tab.
Your list of products will look like the image below:
Each product will have a tab in the right-hand column titled "Active?". Below is an example:
Toggling the tab "on" (blue) will make that individual product (and its variants) available for all of your partners.
Toggling the tab "off" (gray) will make that individual product (and its variants) unavailable for all of your partners.
Toggle Active State in Bulk
Active states can also be toggled in bulk. To do so, click the checkbox in the top-left corner of your products table. A "Actions" button will then appear. Click this button to display various actions that can be applied in bulk, such as activating, deactivating, or deleting pages of products; adding or removing tags; or assigning google categories:
Clicking "Toggle Active State" will turn all "on" (active) products to "off" (inactive), and vice versa.
Syncing New Products
Depending on your connection method, new products may automatically sync into the Products tab in Convictional. New products synced into Convictional will default to being active ("on").
You can also configure your price lists so that new products are automatically priced for your partners (this is not the default setting). See: automatically price new products.
Combined, this means any new product you sync into Convictional will be automatically priced and synced to your partners.
Activating Products vs Deleting From Price Lists
A common question is whether sellers should mark products as inactive or delete them from a specific price list that they attach to one of their partners.
Marking a product as inactive makes it unavailable to sync with all of your partners.
Deleting a product from an individual price list means it is unavailable to that specific partner (or any partner using that price list).
