Enable/Disable Gooten Products Types

Enabling/Disabling Different Merch Product Variants


Merch products come in a variety of options, different brands, sizes, colors, models... If you are looking to offer only a specific set of variants, for example only one brand of T-Shirts or only one size of Pillows Cases, follow the steps bellow.

  1. While you are in your Art Print Store, click on the Media tab > Merch tab, and then click the blue Edit link next to the Product for which you want to review variants. In this example, we will review different T-Shirt variants.

  2. This will take you to a new section, where you can start looking through all the variants of T-Shirts, by filtering the different Brands, Print Placements, Sizes and Colors.

    Note: Different products have different filters. For example, on T-Shirts you can filter through different Brands, while on Tote Bags you can filter just through different Sizes.


  3. Let's say we want to disable all Black variants of Bella + Canvas brand. Under Filter By Brand, we'll select Bella + Canvas, and under Filter by Color we'll select Black. Then click on Search.

  4. This will list out all the variants of Bella + Canvas in Black color:

  5. Here, we can use the Toggle All: Off button, to toggle off all variants of this brand and color, OR use the individual toggles next to a specific variant to toggle it Off/On.

  6. Here we will use the Toggle All: Off button to disable all black Bella + Canvas T-Shirts. This means that all of these variants will not be available on the product page for they buyers.

  7. By using the different filters, you can fine tune your offering to a specific brand, size, color, print placement.

 

Lock Image Position

Every Merch Product has embedded image movement tool on the live site. This tool will allow your customers to resize, rotate and move image in positions they prefer. However, you have the ability to pre-determine image position, scale and rotation angle, and take away the ability of the customer or site visitor to that, which ensures that the image will be printed the way you have intended it. You can do this with our Lock Image in a Position Tool, and it is done per product. 

  1. Locate the Product you'd like to Lock Image in a Position for in your Art Print Store, and click on edit

  3. Here you'll find a list of all enabled Merch Products that this particular product can be printed on. Next to every option, you will see "Lock Image Position" link. Clicking on the link will take you to the Lock Image Position page.

  4. Here, you will be able to adjust the image on the selected Merch item preview. Once you are done, select Lock Current Variant. This will lock the image in a position and disable the image editing tool for merch on your website.

Troubleshooting

  1. I don’t see sliders for merch product types on my site.
    1. If you aren’t seeing these sliders, you may be on the wrong tab or you may not be connected to a fulfillment vendor. First, try making sure you’re on the tab labeled Merch.
    2. If you are on the Merch tab, scroll down and see if you have the sliders. If you don’t, you aren’t connected to a vendor. Email cs@artstorefronts.com and they’ll be able to resolve this for you.
  2. My changes to the sliders won’t save.
    1. You likely need to use an approved browser. If you’re using anything other than Firefox or Chrome, you should stop and use either Chrome or Firefox.
    2. If you’re using an approved browser, you may need to clear your cache. Check out how to clear the cache by using the article on How To: Clear your Cache.
