Hi,

since shopify has a rule of 5000 products per collection filter then the button will disappear

i thought of a work-around but need some help.

I want to limit all my collections to a max of 4999 products. So new arrivals will still show all the newest products coming in but after 4999th product they will delete therefor never crossing the 5000 threshold.

can someone tell me how to implement this.

my site is https://luxurymrkt.com

 

thanks Mike

You would most likely have to build a custom app, which subscribes to webhook and whenever a product is added to collection it would check the count of products in that collection and if it is equal to 4999 it would remove an old product from that collection.

I am founder of WishIt.app, you can create any theme edit task on our app - WishIt.app : Custom CSS / JS and we will do it for you. The first task is FREE!

Is there a simple way to override the 5000 cut off filter ? Without using a 3rd party app for $150 a month for the amount of products

Thank You | mike

Hi @Luxurymrkt 👋

As @Wish-It has pointed out, you can build a custom app. It is very technical, but you can hire a Shopify partner at https://experts.shopify.com, or Fiverr to build it.

Apparently not. Shopify wants you to pay for some garbage apps. Just raise the limit. Wish I would have known this before choosing shopify, I would have gone another route...
