How do I phase-out products (with and without a date)?

There are multiple ways to phase out a product. This article tells you how.

You can 'Phase out' a product via our frontend, the public API, and through a bulk upload. 

Front-end

You can phase out a product as described below 

  1. Go to the 'Products Page' and select your product
  2. In the overlay, set 'Phase out' to 'True'

Set a date

By default, the product be phased out without an end date. If you would like the product to automatically be purchased again, you can set a date. When this date has passed, we will start purchasing this product again. 

API

If you have several products that need to be phased out. You can do this via the API. Use the products endpoint and the notBeingBought attribute. 

Bulk Upload

Below you can read how to phase out multiple products at once by means of a list. 

To phase out products we need the following information. A template of the file below can be found here.

skuCode, notBeingBought
123-ABC; TRUE
898-OIU; FALSE
093-PEX; TRUE
098-WEK; TRUE

Note, to phase out a product, set notBeingBought = TRUE

Date

It is also possible to phase out products until a certain date. Deliver the list of products in the following way:

skuCode, notBeingBought, resumingPurchase
123-ABC; TRUE; 2020-01-24
898-OIU; TRUE; 2020-10-29
093-PEX; TRUE; 2020-05-06
098-WEK; TRUE; 2020-08-15

A template of this file can be found here.

Of course you can also inform us that products need to be purchased again. You can also switch products on (true) and off (false) in one list:

skuCode, notBeingBought
123-ABC, FALSE
898-OIU, TRUE
093-PEX, FALSE
098-WEK, TRUE
