How To Block Unwanted Orders [Shopify]

Are you a Shopify store owner looking to customize your checkout process to block certain orders? Perhaps you have personal reasons for not wanting to sell specific products to certain regions, or you need to enforce brand restrictions. Whatever your requirement, Shopify doesn’t inherently offer a feature to facilitate this. But fear not, there’s a solution!

Step 1: Introduction to Cart Block Checkout

Firstly, let’s familiarize ourselves with the Cart Block Checkout Data app. This tool allows you to add conditions to your Shopify store’s checkout process. If these conditions are met, the app automatically prevents customers from proceeding with their orders.

Step 2: Installing the App

Navigate to the Shopify App Store and install Cart Block on your store. Follow the prompts to complete the installation process.

Step 3: Setting Up Conditions

Once the app is installed, you’ll need to create validations to determine when orders should be blocked. These validations act as rules that Shopify will follow during checkout. For example, you could create a validation to block orders for products tagged as “special.”

Step 4: Creating a Validation

Let’s create a validation for our example scenario. Name the validation (e.g., “For Special Customers”), specify where the error message should appear during checkout (e.g., email field), and define the error message itself (“This product is for special customers only”).

Step 5: Adding Conditions

Now, it’s time to add conditions to the validation. In our example, we’ll select the condition “Tags of product in cart” and set the value to “special.” This means that if a product tagged as “special” is in the customer’s cart, they’ll receive the error message specified in the validation.

Step 6: Testing the Validation

After saving the validation, apply the “special” tag to a product in your store. Try adding this product to your cart and proceeding to checkout. You should encounter an error message indicating that the product is only for special customers.

Step 7: Exploring Additional Options

Cart Block Checkout Data offers various customization options, including the ability to add multiple conditions, specify operators (e.g., “and” or “or”), and target specific markets.

With Cart Block Checkout, you can easily tailor your Shopify store’s checkout process to block unwanted orders based on your specific requirements. Whether you need to restrict sales by product, quantity, or other criteria, this app provides the flexibility and control you need.
