Hi there, for this you could use tags and some logic to hide the add to cart buttons for products belonging to that collection. You will want to apply that logic if you are using dynamic checkout buttons as well.

 

Let us know if you need a hand.

 

Take care.

You may not have the dynamic checkout buttons activated in your theme. Are we able to take a look at the site? The key is you need to make sure all add to cart buttons are removed, not just from the product page view, but the collection grid view too.

 

Cheers.

Hi @MAREE1 

You can create a new product template for those products and then remove buy now button block from that template. You can learn how from this article: https://help.shopify.com/en/manual/online-store/themes/theme-structure/templates
