A fabulous app for a small business, we all need a break from time to time but shopify unfortunately does not have a holiday (or vacation) mode like Etsy or Ebay yet. This app fills that gap, offering a simple way to keep your shop running while you are away. No impact on your SEO or traffic with a simple install to remove the add to cart button, which is replaced with a simple message your away.

You can easily mod the message and say what you like, so an opportunity to keep on brand or tweak to local language (e.g. vacation vs. holiday). You can also set it up to automatically turn on again while you are away, so close your shop a week before you go and reopen again while you are away so you have some work to come back to, brilliant.

It's well thought out, not bloated with irrelevant or overcomplicated functions and John in support as other have said already, is a really super nice guy and who will help set things up if needed. This app allowed us to take some family time away from shopify, emails, social media and other apps just for a week. It was a real blessing after years being stuck on a treadmill (like many family businesses). Highly recommended.

FINALLY is all I can say - what a great and useful app for taking a break with your store and not having to follow the ridiculous suggestions by shopify to put the "coming soon" / password protected page back up - I don't care what kind of message you put on that page - it makes you look like you have gone out of business - and no one can browse your store!

With Magical Vacation mode - you can close for as long as you want, and still keep your shop open with a message (configurable) on the home page and product page so that customers don't get frustrated or confused.

Simple and lightweight - doesn't bog down the store. I personally have needed this app for years and am thrilled with the ease of set up AND the responsiveness of the developer who helped me tweak it to my needs.

Take a break, close for inventory - go on vacation - at the push of a button. 5 stars all the way!

The customer service team was incredibly helpful, and the ability to personalize the vacation-mode message adds significant value. This feature allows you to maintain your brand's personality while utilizing the app.

Just what I needed, easy to use and does what it says, simple as that! The setup took me less than a minute and everything is working well, thank you.

What a blessing this milestone app is.

For years I confused my customers by doing the only thing that Shopify allows you to do: Password protect your site.

Most of my not so tech savy customers hence believed that I went out of business....

Thank you, Magical Apps!!!

As a one-woman show, this app is a life-saver!! I wanted a way for people to still be able to browse through my website when I take an occasional break, but not be able to actually place orders. It's a WAY better solution than putting a site into password protection mode.
It was the easiest thing to implement on my entire website, and it works like a charm. 100% thumbs up from me!

L'application fait très bien son boulot, allez y les yeux fermés ! Idéal pour le tournage vidéo d'une ad.

Very easy to use, and do exactly what it said !

To devs : You might need to add different languages ;)

Neat app, super handy, makes it really easy to put your shop in vacation mode while customers can still explore the shop. Easy access to vacation mode variable through Liquid. Thank you!

This is a very, very useful app for Shopify, and it's completely free, at least for now. Finally a tool with which you can temporarily (or longer) block the sale of products without having to "hide" your entire shop. This can be helpful for many small companies if, for example, the entire work cannot be done due to illness.
The app works immediately and flawlessly. You can add an additional popup where customers can register during the "closure". The good thing is that this email registration is linked to "Shopify email", so that the "double opt-in" (DOI) works, which is mandatory in the EU.
The display of this popup was previously in english. Thanks to a mega top hammer SUPPORT, this has been changed, at least for German-speaking shops, so that the ad is now available in German. The app does this automatically if the shop has the language "German". So: A useful little app with fast, good support. We recommend !
