Why are out-of-stock products not deleted from Google Merchant Center by the AdNabu app in Shopify?

Generally, we do not delete the out-of-stock products; instead, we push them as regular products to the Google Merchant Center.

We do this on purpose because if we delete the out-of-stock products, those products will be permanently removed, and when you re-stock, you have to again go through the google approval process, which can be time-consuming.
In this case, whenever you re-stock these products, the status will be changed and updated.

You can also check the app Easy Google Shopping Feed app by AdNAbu.

You can get in touch with our experts and request a demo. 

Hope this helps.

Generally, this is how all apps work. When an item is out of stock they still exist in Google Merchant Center.

Google automatically does not advertise products that are out of stock within 24 hours.

However, in reality with free shopping, out of stock products do need to be removed. As it will otherwise flag disapprovals.
