Marking Products as "Coming Soon"

I have looked around and have not had much luck with finding a complete answer, perhaps because I am new to Shopify. I am customizing the Debut theme and want to change the words "Sold Out" to "Coming Soon", So far I have managed to change it when you click on the product itself (https://www.myfavebag.com/products/the-umbrella) but I cannot figure out how to change it on the thumbnail (https://www.myfavebag.com/collections/all/the-brelly). Can you let me know where I might check so I can fix it?
Thanks!

Hey, @stephanierobo. That’s great! I’m happy to hear you were able to figure out how to change the button. Feel free to provide more detailed information as to how you went about doing it, in hopes that it may help other merchants that discover this thread.

 

Theme coding is out of my scope of knowledge I’m afraid, so I am not able to advise on your coding questions. However, I recommend reaching out to our live support so that a Support Advisor can submit your request to the Theme department and we can find out for sure if this is something they are able to customize for you. For reference, more information about the type of customizations that are possible using your design time are found in the post: What Can Be Covered in Free Design Time.

 

Alternatively, there is also always the option of reaching out to a Shopify Expert as well, if by chance this is not something that the Shopify Theme department is able to assist with. You can read more about the Experts Marketplace and how to go about working with an Expert in the Help Doc Hiring help

 

Let me know how it goes!

Hi Helen,

Can you help me hide prices of specific products on my store?

Welcome to the Community, @Kelvin1988! I’m happy to point you in the right direction on how to go about doing this.

 

As mentioned above, if you are comfortable with coding, there is a tutorial for hiding all of your product prices in order to make the customization yourself. However, if it is just the price of certain products that you would like hidden, then this will require some assistance to implement.

 

Which theme are you using? If It’s a Shopify-made theme, then we'd be happy to check with our Theme department to see if this is a customization they are able to support. While we’re not able to provide account-specific support via the Shopify Community at this time in order to coordinate with the Theme department for you, please visit the Shopify Help Center and log in to your account to create a support request for it there.

 

Alternatively, if you are using a third party theme, then please reach out to a Shopify Expert in the Experts Marketplace to discuss your customization requirements, and arrange to hire an Expert to help you with this. 

 

Let me know if I can help with anything else!

Hi Helen,

 

Thank you for sharing! This was very helpful - but now it turned actual product that I won't be restocking to "sold out products". Can we have both sold out and coming soon exist? I have new product coming but I don't want customers to think we'll be restocking actual sold out items.

The translation method is a 1 to 1, so it's either sold out or coming soon.

If you want to have more product statuses you need advanced customization.

Shopify does have a pre-order customization you could subvert to be "coming soon" instead.

Good news, as mentioned above, there are solutions for being able to have some products as “Sold out” and others as “Coming soon”. To summarize, the options are:
