Wipeout app will only publish BACK-IN-STOCK products - Products that were out-of-stock the previous day and have been re-stocked since then.
This means : if you turn OFF Automatic Publish and then press the Manual Publish button 10 days later or turn back ON the Automatic Publish option 10 days later, only the back-in-stock products since the 9th day will be published. Any products that might have come back-in-stock during the time Automatic Publish was OFF will have been missed by the app and will never be published by the app.
If you have deliberately hidden an in-stock product that was visible to customers then the app will not publish it since it is not a back-in-stock product. This way products you don’t want published will stay hidden.
When you newly install the app for the very first time, only products back-in-stock AFTER the installation date will be published. Because the app has no way of knowing whether a product was out-of-stock before you installed the app.
In addition to Back-in-Stock products, the app will also publish below products like it has always done :
newly created in-stock products (may be discontinued in future due to Shopify limitation)
in-stock products that now have a photo. (may be discontinued in future)
in-stock products no longer excluded in the app
The app will NOT hide or publish products that customers can purchase even if out-of-stock. This is because such products are considered to be always in-stock.
Products that were out-of-stock the previous day and have been re-stocked since then.
Newly Created products:
In-stock Products newly created since the previous day.
In-stock products kept hidden because they do not have a photo will be published when a photo is added.
In-stock products that were excluded in the app will be published when their exclusion is removed
