Scheduling products

You can schedule a product to appear on your site later, at a time you specify. This way, you'll create the product in advance and hide it from visitors until you're ready to sell it. This is a great option if you release new product lines periodically and want to launch a new collection all at once.

For help creating a product, visit Adding products to your store.

Dates are based on your time zone

The scheduled date and time are based your time zone set in Language and Region Settings, not a visitor’s local time. To ensure your products publish when you want them to, ensure your Language and Region Settings are correct.
