Conceal any collection in your store and make it accessible via a secret URL only.

After hiding a selected collection, it can only be accessed by a secret URL, which you can share with your selected audience. This feature is useful for those wanting to run promotions, early access deals, or even a private group sale. Integration with Storefront Search makes it user-friendly. You can be confident that your secret collections remain hidden to Google search and the storefront but are searchable and purchasable like any other products once accessed by the secret URL.

Hidden collection link works well when embedding on a mailout, but customers often get hidden error message when copy paste link for some reason? Also the items in the hidden collection are still searchable in store, so thats a bit useless, wish was a way to hide the items from store search.

Hi there! Any chance you could email us with a screenshot of the error message? We haven't had any reports of this and would like to look into it.

Re: search, we include hidden products in search results once you've accessed the private collection (its like you unlock secret products on the store, then they appear like normal).

Could you double check that you're not logged into a secret collection by using a new "incognito" browser window to search your store? And as always please reach out if we can help with an issue! And just so you have it handy, our support address is support@impress.store

Thanks!

*Edit*: This review was while the app had just launched and I've moved it to 5 stars. It works great! The team reached out to me and got it working for my premium theme and I'm quite pleased with their engagement, understanding, and enthusiasm. Very very pleased with this and I'm impressed with how this simple idea works so well. Definitely recommend this if you want a super-easy mechanism to offer secret collections to your VIPs.

Even when I had trouble initially, the app was very gentle to my theme and didn't mess up anything on install/uninstall. But now everything is working great!

My original review for reference:
Really wanted this to work, but did nothing with my theme at all. Doesn't look like it even tried to install. Didn't show me anything but manual collections to hide and then didn't hide anything, etc.

I imagine if you have an easy/simple theme then it would work okay to do its thing, but though it could generate links that took you to the collection, it didn't do anything to hide the product/collection from search/etc without its theme changes.

2 stars because it didn't destroy my store on uninstall -- but otherwise I would have done 1 star because it literally didn't do what it said it would.

Only leaving a review because it had none, otherwise I would just assume it's not intended.

do not install this app, I never write reviews but these guys are terrible. I tried to remove their app and found out you need to remove their code manually. I followed their instructions to the letter, and it deleted almost all of my home page, luckily I had a back up. I reached out to them for support and they have not replied, there are far too many app providers like this on Shopify these days, avoid like the plague.

Hi Joann, thank you for taking the time to leave a review and I am glad we were able to resolve the issue over email!

This app is super glitchy and with over 1 month waiting for support nothing has improved. I share the vip link to a collection and then it doesn't work. This is beyond frustrating!
