In use cases where the shop/downloads site is intended to be completely free, it would be nice to have checkboxes to completely disable/remove the Woocommerce basket and checkout pages and any endpoints.

I created a page titled "E-commerce functionality disabled" with content "Sorry, e-commerce functionality has been disabled for this website". Then I set in Woocommerce settings > Checkout > Cart and Checkout pages to point to that page. I then permanently delete the original basket & checkout pages generated by Woocommerce.

When someone tries to access the original basket or checkout pages, they won't exist. If a client created a priced product by mistake and the user ends up adding it to the basket, they'll see the e-commerce disabled page.

Kind of makes things airtight for 100% free download sites!

    Interesting idea mate, I'll put something on the list for the pro version.

    This is an option in version 1.0.92 now mate. You still need to set your products up correctly, but purchasing products is disabled completely.
