In order to make it easier for you to start your online business, all of our shops will be set online immediately, as Google usually needs a few weeks to list the shop anyway. But you don't want your shop to be online until it's finished or you do maintenance? Here is your manual:

  1. Click on Designs
  2. Go to professional mode with your current design

    3. Click ''plus'' to create a new file
    4. Name the file (e.g. maintenance etc.) and select HTML as file type
    5. Copy the following code, add it to your new file and click on save

<!doctype html>
<title>maintenance mode</title>
  body { text-align: center; padding: 150px; }
  h1 { font-size: 50px; }
  body { font: 20px Helvetica, sans-serif; color: #333; }
  article { display: block; text-align: left; width: 650px; margin: 0 auto; }
  a { color: #dc8100; text-decoration: none; }
  a:hover { color: #333; text-decoration: none; }

    <h1>We will be back soon!</h1>
        <p>We apologise for the inconvenience, but we are currently carrying out some maintenance work. You can contact us at any time. Otherwise we will be online again soon!


    6. Click on Master and you will already have the maintenance message (prepared             by us) on your landing page, so your shop and your products are not accessible.

    7. Click on ''open store'' to make sure everything went right
    8. As soon as you want to publish your shop again, simply delete
        the file and set the 'master' file as master again.
