INSTALL

Locksmith is for access control, on your online storefront. As a tool, Locksmith’s power comes from a super-versatile yet super-simple idea: locks to protect your content, and keys to let different people in.

Once you’ve locked something, use keys to grant access if the customer:

  • has a certain tag
  • is signed in
  • gives a certain passcode
  • arrives via a secret link
  • is not signed in
  • does not have a certain tag
  • gives one of many passcodes
  • subscribes to your Mailchimp list or newsletter
  • subscribes to your Klaviyo list or newsletter
  • has one of many email addresses
  • the customer’s email contains something specific
  • has purchased a specific product
  • has placed at least x orders
  • has a certain product in their cart
  • has a certain variant in their cart
  • has at least $x in their cart
  • has a certain IP address
  • is visiting from a certain country
  • is visiting before a certain date and time
  • is visiting after a certain date and time

Or, grant access using any custom condition by using a little Liquid code.
