How to Turn Off A Shop Checkout Temporarily

There may be instances when you wish to temporarily prevent customers from ordering from your shop - maybe when you're taking a well-deserved holiday or need to update your stock. Fortunately you can easily switch the shopping basket facility off on your shop to prevent ordering.

To do this please follow the steps below:

  1. Click onto "Shop" from the top menu
  2. Click on "Shop Settings" from the left hand menu 
  3. Next click on "General Configuration"
  4. Look beneath the heading "General" 
  5. Select "Off" from the drop down for "Shopping Basket"

We would recommend that you also place a message on your Home or Shop page to notify customers "orders can be placed after "x" date" (once you have returned) to keep them updated.
