We will dive into Shopify's product status meaning in this article. They have 3 product statuses: Active, Draft, and Archived.
Active: This status is set when you want to sell a product by making it available to your active sales channels.
Draft: By default, this status is set for newly added products. The products are in your store but not visible to the public eyes.
Archived: You set this status when you no longer want to display a product in your online store, but you don’t want to permanently delete the product.
Note: To let a product display while using Product Filter & Search, merchants need to set it as Active and enable the Online store for Sale channel and apps.
