Block access to the Shopify Storefront so that customers use Private App instead

New Member

I've built my Shopify Store using Gatsby and Shopify's Storefront API. But when customers go to checkout, redirecting them to, they can access links that take them to the made-by-Shopify store. This is confusing, but it's basically: I want customers to only be able to use my app to shop, and not the default Shopify app. 


Anything to point me in the right direction will be helpful. I haven't seen this topic on the forum before.

Hey @JacobBelanger 

You can setup a JS redirect in your shopify theme from the admin, to refer traffic back to your Gatsby site.
