What criteria is used to determine if a product created in the GT Backend is available for purchase through online purchase channels?
The web product flag determines whether or a not a product created in the GT Backend passes through the API for online integrations.
If a product is missing from your integration platform, confirm that web product status is enabled by looking for the Web Data tab on the product's details page or by selecting Actions > Edit Product and confirming the Web Product box is checked. If there is no Web Data tab, enable web product status by selecting Actions > Edit Product, then checking the Web Product box.
To review the status of multiple products at once, select Products > New List and use the Column visibility button to add Flag: Web Product to the visible columns.
