Restricting customers to a specific collection
With Locksmith, it is simple to lock down a specific collection, so that it can only be viewed by a specific set of customers. However, some merchants want to take it one step further and make sure that those customers can only access their collection, while the rest of the store is restricted to them.
Part 1: Create the collection lock
Add a lock to the collection that you want these customers to access. Use the search bar in Locksmith to search for the collection by name:
Under "Keys", choose how these customers will gain access. You can use whatever method of access you want. The most common way of granting access in this scenario is to use "customer tags" to grant access:
Make sure the "Master key" setting is turned on for this lock. Use the following guide to do this: Using the master key setting. This setting is important.
Part 2: Create a lock covering the rest of the store
In order to make sure that these customers can't see the rest of your store, you need to actually add a lock to your "entire shop":
For your key condition, you need to use the opposite of the first key condition:
For this key:
1. Using the following to invert the key: Inverting keys. The result is that it will show "unless" instead of "if", as in the above image.
2. Once again, turn on the master key setting.
