Password protection

Password protecting (or hiding) your store will lock it, and hide everything so you can continue setting it up. Some themes will also display a "Coming Soon" splash page.

Password protecting your store is a good idea while you are still adding products or designing its look and feel. This is especially important if you have set up a credit card and payment gateway but don't want to start accepting sales quite yet.

Your store can be password protected in the Preferences -> General Settings -> Password Protect Access to your Store section of your store admin.

When your store is ready to go, you can then simply un-tick the Use password protection option and click the Apply Settings button.
