Set Up The Best Sellers Protection App
Use this app to prevent competitors from snooping around by automatically hiding the best selling sort option on your collection pages. The app does 2 things:
- If you have a sort options dropdown on your collections pages, it will remove the option "Sort by bestselling."
- If a competitor tries to append this string - ?sort_by=best-selling - at the end of your collection page URL, when Vitals has loaded will redirect the page using this string - ?sort_by=manual - basically making sure the competitor will not see your best-sellers.
Check this Products link, for example, where you'll find the ?sort_by=best-selling link redirected to ?sort_by=manual.
You should know, however, that this is not a bullet-proof solution against a developer. For example, they might stop our app from running in their own browser and have access to all your best-sellers.
