Shopify Installation

This guide outlines how to Photolock on a Shopify store.

It only takes a few minutes to install Photolock on your website. Once installed, you’ll be able to control & limit actions that your website's visitors can perform on your site.

Installation


You can install Photolock at Shopify App Store. Select a plan to start your free trial and the code will be automatically added to your Shopify theme. 

Configure Domain:


After you install the script on your site, go to Photolock dashboard and click "Locks" in the navigation menu.

Find Website settings and add your custom domain
Updating Domain Settings in Photolock


Your website domain must match the value here. Most websites these days use multiple domains. At a minimum, you have a domain with "www" and also a root domain as shown below.

www.mysite.com
mysite.com

Therefore it is important to configure a primary domain for your website and add redirects to the primary domain. Photolock only accepts a single domain. In case users visit your site with other domains and there are no redirects to primary domain, Photolock will not activate.

In Shopify, you can configure your primary domain under Online Store > Domains

Shopify Domain Settings


Now you're ready to start using Photolock.
