Adding and removing staff accounts

Last updated

As the store owner you can provide your staff members with their own account to access your Ecwid Control Panel. Each member you invite will have a permission to manage your store, but will not be able to access to your financial information or invite additional staff members.

The Business plan includes 2 staff accounts. You can have as many staff accounts as you'd like on the Unlimited plan. Upgrade to get this feature

Adding staff accounts

Only you (the account owner) can create staff accounts by sending an invitation to a staff member. Each user must have an Ecwid account to be able to confirm their account and create or reset password.

To add a new staff account:

  1. Go to your Ecwid Control Panel → My Profile → Staff Accounts 
  2. Click Add staff member:

  1. Enter the email address of the staff member you would like to invite:

  1. Click Send Invite and you are done!

An email invitation to create an account will be sent to the new staff member.

When your staff member receives the email invitation to open a staff account for your Ecwid store, they have to: 

  1. Click the link in the email to accept the invitation
  2. Log in to their Ecwid account.
If the invited member does not have an Ecwid account, they will be prompted to create one. If they already signed up with Ecwid, they need to login and choose the store to manage.

Staff permissions

Once the staff member has accepted the invitation, they will gain full access to your store except for the store's subscription billing and other staff accounts.

We don't have different staff roles yet. We will add more staff roles in the future, so you will be able to give your employees access only to certain areas of the Control Panel.

Removing staff accounts

As the store owner you can remove a staff account. To do so:

  1. Go to your Ecwid Control Panel → My Profile → Staff Accounts
  2. In the Staff account’s card click Actions → Remove user:
