Special Order Button

Hello I'm using the Simple Theme. I need to make a Special Order button on items that have a certain tag. So instead of saying "Add to Cart" it would say "Special Order" if the item has that tag on it. Is this possible? Or have even a small Splash page pop up and let the customer know that the item is Special Order that has that tag. I have added on the product page advising that these items are already Special Order but I guess people don't read and still order assuming the items are available. Any help would be appreciated 

Thanks.

Hello, @Matt_Evolved.

Thank you for reaching out and posting this question!

It is possible to create a separate product page template and change the add-to-cart text to say "Special Order," then this template can be assigned to certain products. This way, you can manage your products simply by changing the templates.

If you're not comfortable working with coding (eg. HTML, CSS, Javascript, or Liquid), then this is something that our Theme Support team can help you with. However,  it's important to note that our Theme Support can only support Shopify themes and your store also needs to be subscribed to a plan in order to be eligible for the complimentary design time. While we’re not able to provide account-specific support via the Shopify Community at this time, we’d be happy to continue assisting you through live chat, email, or callback. Please visit the Shopify Help Center and log in to your account to create a support request.

I'd love to know if this is a solution for what you're looking for. Keep me posted!

I don't think I can do it that way because I have 60,000+ Products that can potentially be Special Order. I have a 3rd party app that connects with my Distributor and items get added and removed all the time but they add a Tag for Special Orders automatically to each item that needs it. So it needs to somehow work with tags not templates.

Hey, @Matt_Evolved.

Thank you for following up!

I think it may still be possible to accomplish this with tags through custom coding. However, you may need to hire a developer to assist you with this, as this level of customization does fall outside the scope of our design policy. If you need help finding a developer, I'd recommend taking a look at Shopify Experts. Shopify Experts is our directory of certified developers that are experienced with custom coding, and they'll be able to create a solution for your store. 

I hope this points you in the right direction. Keep me posted!
