Hello @lunahlife ,


1) Create a Wholesale Collection:
First, create a collection specifically for your wholesale products. You can do this by going to your Shopify admin panel and navigating to "Products" > "Collections," then clicking the "Create collection" button.


2) Tag Wholesale Products:
Tag all the products that you want to be considered wholesale products. You can do this by editing each product's details and adding a specific tag, such as "wholesale."



Modify Your Theme:
To hide wholesale products from search results, you'll likely need to modify your store's theme code. This requires some coding knowledge or the help of a developer. Here's a general idea of what you need to do:

Navigate to "Online Store" > "Themes" in your Shopify admin.

Find and click on the "Actions" button for your active theme, then choose "Edit code."

Locate the search.liquid or search-results.liquid file in the templates section (the exact name may vary depending on your theme).

Edit the code to add a condition that excludes products with the wholesale tag from being displayed in search results. The code might look something like this:

{% for result in search.results %}
  {% unless result.object.tags contains 'wholesale' %}
    <!-- Display search result here -->
  {% endunless %}
{% endfor %}


Save the changes to the code.


If you're not comfortable modifying your theme code, you might consider using a Shopify app that provides more advanced search customization options.
e.g. Searchanise

You can hide the wholesale product from the search result using metafield settings.

Refer to the below video for the same.



To remove the product in the recommended section

Use add below code in related-product.liquid

            assign isWholesale = false
            for t in recommendation.tags
              if t contains 'wholesale'
                assign isWholesale = true
          <li class="grid__item"  {% if isWholesale %} style="display:none" {% endif %} data-isWholesale="{{ recommendation.tags }}">


Please refer to the screenshot to get the info about line no.



Hope this will help...

Hello @lunahlife 

You may use the Wholesale Lock Manager app, or look for one up of your choice on the Shopify App Store. You can use this app to hide specific products/ collections from certain customers and give access to the restricted content using Passcodes, Customer-tags, or Login-credentials to the customers of your choice. I’m leaving a link to our FAQ page here so that it may help you get a better understanding of this solution. The reason why I’m recommending an app over a custom code is simply because of the ease of use, our app alongside most of them on the Shopify App Store is plug and play, so that means you don’t need to spend time creating a custom code Lock.


I am a customer success specialist at Wholesale Helper. Happy to walk you through too if you’d like a personalized demo. 


I hope this helps 🙂
