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:
If this is a private collection, no further action necessary. If the collection is meant to be viewed by all customers, you'll also want to use the "force open other locks" setting on the lock for the entire store.
