How To Hide A Product From Your WhatsApp Business Catalog

Do you have an item that’s out of stock on your collection or catalog on WhatsApp Business? Or do you have a product or service that you want to offer to your customers in the meantime? In any case, you can hide them from your catalog on the app. Follow our quick guide below, and we’ll teach you how to hide items on WhatsApp Business.


When you add an item to your catalog on WhatsApp Business, your customers can view them whenever they want. In this way, they can immediately ask you if the product or service is available for them to buy.

However, there might be times when you want to temporarily remove an item from the display. Although you can delete the product in the meantime and add them back later, there’s a better option.

You can hide any of the items on your WhatsApp catalog from your customers on the app. In this way, you won’t need to remove the item from your shop completely and just unhide them instead when it’s time to display the product again.

Here’s our guide about adding items from your WhatsApp Business catalog.
