As I’ve mentioned in the writing about how to hide the add to cart button, after you’ve done it, you can replace the button with an email link or contact form. This will increase the interaction between you and your customers. In addition, you won’t miss any prospect who intent to buy your item. Your customers will use the email or the contact form to contact you, ask about when the product will be for sale again or other information. Follow the below steps to insert an email link or contact form in an effortless way.

After the last step you’ve made in the writing how to hide the add to cart button, point to a new line below the Liquid {% endcomment %} tag. Then, make sure to enter the HTML code for your email link:


Please <a href="mailto:{{ shop.email }}">contact us</a> if you are interested in this product.

Don’t forget to add your own email link instead of shop.email.
