If you ever want to "close" your Product Page, use the simple Checkout Redirect feature to send your visitors to the destination of your choice.
Here's how it works...
- First, pick a webpage you want to redirect your visitors to, and copy the URL of that page.
- Then, from your SamCart Products tab, select any product.
- On the Product Edit Page, click Advanced Settings.
- Paste the URL into the Checkout Page Redirect field.
- Click Save Changes.
After your changes are saved, anyone who attempts to visit that Product Page's URL will be redirected to the Checkout Page Redirect URL you've set.

Where Should I Redirect My Visitors?
You can redirect your visitors to literally any webpage on the internet. Let's try to narrow it down a little and list some "best practices" for closing down a Product Page.
1: Build A Waiting List
Redirect visitors to a page where you can build a waiting list. You know that any visitors are interested in buying, so build a waiting list while you're closed.
When you open again, you will have a perfect group of eager buyers!
2: Redirect To 'Full Price'
If you were selling a product at a discounted price, use Checkout Redirect to send visitors to a full-price Product Page.
This allows anyone who really wants to buy to place an order, and you get to pull in a few extra sales with even better margins.
