Temporarily Disable Checkout

Hi everyone,

I am looking for some advise please.

I want to soft launch a website so customers can view all the products and their prices but for the time being I dont want them to be able to checkout. Instead I would like to display a message asking them to get in touch.

Is this possible easily does anyone know?

Would simply removing all payment methods from the store front prevent this?

Many thanks for any suggestions in advance :)

May be this can help


Appreciate the response thank you. This however would not work as desired unfortunately.

I have instead removed all payment methods for the store. This appears to allow users to browse the site and even add products to the cart. They can calculate the shipping costs as expected in the cart but the checkout button has been removed. This allows potential customers to see the costs without being able to place the order.

Thanks again
