Channel Product Restrictions


Overview

You can restrict products and brands from selling on specific channels. Products individually specified, as well as those related to restricted brands, will not be posted or updated on the channel(s) and will be excluded from inventory and pricing feeds.

Restricting a product already posted on the channel does not exclude it from the feed. Instead, it sets the sent quantity to zero.
