1.1: Configure the Product

What you must do

The following are required for Merch Bridge to function properly:

  1. A custom product type "Manifold" must be added to the product

  2. Token Exclusive items must have a high price point set

1. Set Product Type to "Manifold"

In order for Manifold Merch Bridge widgets to take effect on the product page you are creating a gate on, you must first mark the product as "Type" "Manifold"

Find and click the product you plan to gate in the "Product" section of the your Shopify store's admin panel.

In the "Product organization" section, find the "Product Type" field and type in "Manifold" (make sure the M is capitalized)

Click "Save" in the top right corner to save changes.

Price Point Settings

For Token Holder Exclusive Products

If you intend the product to be an exclusive item for NFT holders, you will need to set an extremely high product price (e.g. $10,000) and apply a discount for NFT holders to bring it back down to the expected price.

The way Shopify is built, there is no underlying ability to restrict who can sell a product. Anyone with a bit of technical knowledge can bypass any gate by directly making the Shopify storefront add the product to the cart.

To get around this limitation, we recommend set a prohibitively high price and discount it for token holders. Any individuals bypassing the gate would result in an extremely high cost to that individual, and could be caught and cancelled if needed.
