What's this Guide For?
A situation may arise where you wish to temporarily disallow orders on your various seller platforms. You'll find that most platforms have the option to make this a reality but unfortunately the option to do so is something we are unable to do through StoreFeeder.
What we can do though is provide guidence as to where's best to go when attempting to close off your store temporarily; please find below a list of links that will do just that.
For both eBay and Amazon you can quickly enable 'Holiday Mode' to prevent any new orders being made.
