Hi Georgina!

If you want to keep your store running but you don't want to offer checkout functionality, you can pause your store in the Shopify Admin (under Settings > Accounts). This will make your store "dorment", which disables checkout. To do this, you simply have to write this is to your theme. 

...ok, maybe not so simple! Depending on the theme, it can be tricky, but here are the 3 basic steps:

1. Add a Theme Setting: Go to the Shopify Theme Template Editor and open configs/settings.html. Add the following bit of code at the very bottom to add the box that will allow you to disable the "Add to Cart" button: 

<fieldset>
  <legend>Checkout Function</legend>
    <table>
    <tr>
      <td><label for="disable_checkout">Disable add to cart and checkout?</label></td>
      <td><input type="checkbox" id="disable_checkout" name="disable_checkout" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
       <td><label for="coming_soon_msg">Replace Price with message</label></td>
      <td><input type="text" id="coming_soon_msg" name="coming_soon_msg" value="" /></td>
    </tr>
  </table>
</fieldset>

 

2. Hide the Cart Links: This is where it can get a little tough, since this step can be different depending on the theme you are using. You'll need to indentify instances of the cart in the theme.liquid file. You'll need to find the for the navigation bar with the cart bottons, then add the following just before: {% unless settings.disable_checkout %} and add this just after: {% endunless %}. 

3. Hide the Add to Cart Button: Again, this step can vary depending on the theme (ahh, so complicated!) but you will need to look in either product.liquid or in a snipped called product-form.liquid (or something similar...crystal clear eh?). In this 
file, look for the <form> code. This is what controls the adding to the cart as its submitted via a HTML form. You should see a line like {% if product.available %}. This lets the theme show the item as sold out if the inventory is 0 and we don't sell bellow zero.

We want to find that code, and surround it with the following:

{% unless settings.disable_checkout %} and end it with

 {% else %}

    <p class="price"> {{ settings.coming_soon_msg }}</p>

 {% endunless %}

Hope that was helpful!! 

Cheers,

Ariane

Hi there!

One way to disable checkout is to temporarily hide your "Add to Cart" button. This can be accomplished by going to the Edit HTML/CSS page and finding the product.liquid file in Themes. Once you've opened the page look for this code:

<input class="btn" type="submit" name="add" id="add-to-cart" value="Add to Cart" />

Wrap it in Liquid comment tags so it looks like this:

{% comment %}
<input class="btn" type="submit" name="add" id="add-to-cart" value="Add to Cart" />
{% endcomment %}

Once that's done, save your template. When you're ready to undo this, just remove the Liquid comment tags. 

You can find more information here: https://docs.shopify.com/manual/configuration/store-customization/page-specific/product-page/how-do-...

 

There is also a great Shopify app to help with Affiliate Marketing: https://apps.shopify.com/leaddyno. It will help you launch your Shopify Affiliate Program quickly and easily, as well as track your marketing and share via social media.

Hope this helps!

Hi Georgina! It's Victoria. 

If you want to deactiviate your checkout the best way of doing this is by pausing your store. 

If you are the account owner you are do this at any time! What pausing your store does is that the checkout option is disabled but your 'store' runs at a reduced cost. 

Basically, your customers would be able to see your products but they will not be able to purchase them. 

Of course if you would like to start selling again at any given time you may start your original plan again :). 

Here is the best way to do this!

To pause your store:

  1. Log in as the account owner.

  2. From your Shopify admin, click Settings:

     

    #

     

  3. Click Account:

     

    #

     

  4. Scroll down to Cancel or pause your store.

  5. Under Pause your store, click Find out more.

     

    #

     

  6. An explanatory dialog opens. If you're happy with the terms and the charges, click Yes, I want to pause my store. Otherwise, click Cancel.

I hope this helps you and if you have any more questions do not hesitate to ask!

Victoria

That's a great way to do it! If you didn't want to change your plan, you could also just edit out the Checkout buttons from your Cart page or disable all your payment gateways!
