Any workarounds to create a store that is not public?
Posted: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 1:43:58 PM
I'd love to be able to create a store where I could share a URL to buyers to gain access to purchase, but not have the products listed to the public.

This would be for groups who don't want their logo or design available to anyone, but also don't want to have one person who collects & manages sizes, colors, shipping addresses, payment, etc. If Zazzle could allow me to set a store as URL Access Only, then provide that URL, we could have people choose & buy their own items. Saves us work taking orders and opens up the market of people who don't want to keep inventory.

Good markets for this:
International online groups
Family reunions
Any smaller group - weddings, bridal showers, memorials, fund-raisers
First responders, restaurants, any other work places where employees buy their own goods.
Causes - people who support a group or attend a specific event

Still have one person as Admin who sets up the products and settings, but then anyone with the link to the store could buy any items with those art designs.

Has anyone figured out a workaround?
I thought maybe don't put any tags on the items, but they might still show up because I don't know how Zazzle decides which products show in their regular promotions or searches.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts on this and Zazzle's consideration for future development!

Set the products to "direct only," and they won't show up publicly, accessible only via a direct link given to the customer.

You can create products with a visibility of Direct-only - so only those who are sent the link can see it.
