Is there anyway i can hide a product that doesn't have a price or 0 for its price?

We use stock import tools (Magmi Data Importer) and so some products imported don't have a price. How can i check each product has a price and disable it if it doesn't.

I've tried overriding the getStatus() method from Mage Core but this seems to disable the whole product and not just a product which is part of a group.

Run this after the import:

$zeroPriceProducts = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->getCollection()
             array('attribute'=>'price', 'eq'=>'0'),
             array('attribute'=>'price', 'isnull'=>true),
$ids = $zeroPriceProducts->getAllIds();
    array('status' => 2).

This should identify the products with price zero and disable them.

  • Hi Marius. This doesn't seem to find 0 priced and instead is printing out every product in the DB. It seems that the attribute to select doesn't do anything?

  • @Marc Sorry I should be addAttributeToFilter instead of addAttributeToSelect. I fixed it.

  • If this answer or any other one solved your problem, mark it as accepted. Let's keep a clean website.

  • Just marked it solved as a quick one to check for NULL can i just add ->addAttributeToFilter('price', array('eq'=> NULL)); that way if the price doesn't exist also (which is mainly the case) it would also get disabled?

I would create a backend script to fix this issue

require_once('app/Mage.php'); //Path to Magento
$Products = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')
                        ->addAttributeToFilter('price', array('lt' => '0.01') // you can change this accordingly
                        ->addFieldToFilter('status', array('eq' => '1');

foreach($Products as $product){

Remember to backup your db before run this script

  • Good answer except one thing. You should not use save in a loop. It's time and resource consuming. You don't need it if you are going to change one single attribute for all the products.
