I sell handmade clothing, and I am wanting to open up my new autumn/winter pre-orders earlier for a specific group of people (earlier than everyone else). So I want to have them hidden/password protected at first.
After a bit of research, I have found that I will probably need an App such as Locksmith to do this.
My question is, can this App hide certain items within an existing collection, or can it only hide whole collections..? Ie: would I have to create a new Collection, and hide that?
I would rather have them in my existing Collections if possible
Elias here with Shopify Support. That's a great question!
Looking at the screenshots in the Media gallery on Locksmith's app page, it seems that you can hide specific products. However, since Locksmith is a third-party app and they offer a 15-day free trial, I'd recommend trying the app in your store or reach out directly to the developer. If you need any help with this app, you can reach out directly to the developer through the contact information found in the Support Section of their app's page.
I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, don't hesitate to let me know!
