Remove SKU - Mark Inactive How To

Product SKUs cannot be deleted. This allows ShippingEasy to maintain integrity in its database and reports.

However, if you have Products that you wish to exclude from your catalog, you can mark a SKU as inactive. This will cause ShippingEasy to ignore the saved SKU values and orders will rely on the information pulling in from your store for specific SKUs. Any product marked as inactive will not be reactivated if orders with the same SKU syncs in, nor will any of its information be updated.

Mark Individual Products As Inactive From the CATALOG

  1. Click the name of the product you want to make inactive.
