Memberships: Buy Buttons

If you’re using a Membership or NFT to gate access to a product in your store, you need to follow the steps below. 


Shopify’s standard Buy Button has limitations around how gated products work and can prevent some customers from being able to purchase them, even if they’re one of your members or holding the right NFT in their connected wallet. 

What do I need to do? 

Your store has a standard ‘default product’ page template, which is created automatically by Shopify and includes standard ‘Buy buttons.’

To ensure your customers are able to purchase your gated products, you need to edit that template to replace Shopify’s standard Buy Buttons with the ones Single has created for you. 


Note: These instructions only apply to Shopify 2.0 stores with app blocks. If your theme is still on Shopify 1.0, we recommend upgrading for the best Shopify experience. If you're unable to upgrade, please submit a support ticket for assistance with resolving this issue.


How to Install "Buy Buttons" in Single

In the Single app, after you gate a product we will surface a module that has a  button, which automatically installs our custom Buy Buttons. This block ensures your gated products function properly.

To install this way, simply:

  1. Go through the flow of gating a product behind a Membership or NFT Collection
  2. In the module (pictured below), click the 'Install Now'  button, which will open your theme editor and install Single’s ‘Gated Product Buy Buttons’ App Block 
  3. Position the block on the page where you want 
  4. Delete Shopify’s standard ‘Buy Buttons’ section 
  5. Click ‘Save’ 
  6. Note: You only need to do this one time

    1. Click the drop down and choose ‘products’
    2. Next click ‘Default product’ to load this page template 
  4. Once you’re in the template, look at the left rail where sections and blocks are located 
  5. Click ‘Add section’ 
  6. Navigate to the ‘Apps’ section where Single’s app blocks are available
