I really want to go live with new merchandise, and invoice customers for these items. I do not want to make them active on the website until the following week to entice people to watch and order from the live. Is this possible?

This is an accepted solution.
This is Summer from the Social Care team at Shopify. Thanks for your question! Releasing new merchandise through a live stream is a really awesome strategy. It's a great opportunity to connect with your customers and showcase your products in real-time.
It is definitely possible to hide a product from your website but sell them to specific customers through invoices or draft orders. Simply go through the following steps to do this.
Once you're ready to add them to the website, manage the sales channels again and check the Online store, as well as all the sales channels you want to add them to. You can then add the products to collections and add the collections to your menu.
