How to schedule a product to become available in the future

  • updated 6 mths ago

This article shows how to schedule out a product to become available for a specific production day.

Many merchants want to schedule products to become available for weeks, months, or maybe even years into the future. To do that, Bottle has a unique widget within each product (inside of the Store) that allows you to schedule products out so that they become available for a specific production day.
