Hey there! I'll be brief:

Locksmith will solve your secure-access problems, and free you to segment your shop's content like never before.

And now: Locksmith supports recurring customer subscriptions, at no extra cost. Create a subscriber-only area, and charge your customers automatically every month for access. Apart from the industry-standard credit card fees, this feature is included with your Locksmith subscription – making Locksmith the most cost-effective way to add memberships to your store. :D


“The app works exactly how we hoped, wildly simple, and amazingly effective.” —Vs. Cancer Foundation


“This is probably one of the best investments I've made.” —Runners Supply


This project is trusted and supported by thousands of merchants around the world – from bootstrapping businesses to Fortune 500s – and we'd be over the moon to help you help your customers too. :)

Here are just a few things you can do with Locksmith:


  • Manually approve customers to access a protected collection.

  • Protect your monthly special with a new passcode every month.

  • Offer a subscriber-only blog, and offer recurring subscription plans for access. (No charge, after the usual credit card fee!)

  • Add industry-only product variants to your existing listings, and make sure that only industry members can see them.

  • Restrict access by the visitor's country.

  • Use customer autotagging to track acquisitions via secret links.

  • Require customers to subscribe to your Mailchimp list, before granting them access.

  • Pre-approve customers in bulk, by importing them with a tag already added.

Locksmith's power comes from a super-versatile yet super-simple idea: locks to protect your content, and keys to let different people in.

Under the hood, this is powered by an system that intelligently understands your theme's code, and updates it automatically to enforce tight security. This auto-integration saves you time, putting all the control in your hands.

Updated review based on the responsiveness and flexibility of the staff. Stand by the recommendation regarding just having a pricing plan more closely linked to the consumer's use of the Locksmith product directly, but very impressed by the developer. I can't do 5 stars as I'm not using the application currently - but would absolutely reconsider if I hadn't already found another solution.
----
Pricing plan methodology is inappropriate. We're forced to use a Shopify plan instead of basic for a single issue, and the difference between $9 and $29 a year for a startup shop is excessive. Had to uninstall.

Good app, does what its supposed to. I'm not a developer so I don't know what goes into the day to day, but I feel the app is overpriced.

Similar apps (those that just add code to your website) are typically around $5 or $6 USD, which seems more reasonable.

The reason I gave this 3 stars is because after I stopped using it, it still blocked some of my products. I was driving ads to some of my pens, but the sales just stopped. It took me a while to realize that the app was making it so those products wouldn't show up, even though I cancelled the service and "unlocked" the products.

If you just check to make sure your products are appearing you are good to go.

Great customer service.

Really useful app and the team were responsive to setup questions we had.

This app works exactly like a wholesaler, but minimal costs, especially for those starting out. You can hide page with products. The only thing is you would need to duplicate products and create different pricing for different groups. It works if you have few products. Brilliant and love it!

This worked really well for our website. Simple to use and just what we were looking for.

An easy app to use to create a separate section of the store. I ultimately went with something else that didn't require making duplicate products, but this is a great solution if you don't mind duplicating products.

I installed the app on one of my 3 stores this weekend and was very pleased with both how simple it was to setup and how effective the app is at doing exactly what I needed it to do.
