Managing multiple stores

If you run several Ecwid stores, you can manage all without logging in to the admin panel of each store separately. For this, you can bundle your Ecwid accounts with a common login.

Are you creating Ecwid stores for your friends or clients and want to manage them all in one place? Check out our Partner Program for more details.

How to create an additional store

One Ecwid account allows you to have one Ecwid store which you can add to many websites. With one Ecwid account, you can also add different store categories to different sites if category products share the same store setup.

For a different new store with its own settings, you need a separate Ecwid account registered to another email address of yours.

You can easily make several Gmail addresses out of one, using the plus tag in your email address.

To manage the stores effectively, you can then bundle your Ecwid accounts with a common login and quickly switch between all stores' admin panels.

How to manage multiple stores

To manage multiple stores without having to log in to each Ecwid account separately, you can bundle these stores with the help of a staff account. You can add your admin login email from one Ecwid admin panel as a staff login email to your other Ecwid admin panels. Once you do so, you can sign in with your admin login email at https://my.ecwid.com/cp/ and choose what Ecwid store to manage.

Decide what email address you want to use as a common login. Is any of your Ecwid stores already registered to this email address? If yes, you can add a staff account with this email address to the admin panels of your other stores. If no, add a staff member with this email address to all of your stores.

Staff accounts can be added on Business plan and higher. 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

Let’s say you have two Ecwid accounts, "Store A" and "Store B". You can easily switch between their admin panels if you bundle these Ecwid accounts:

  1. Log in to the admin panel of "Store B".
  2. Navigate to My Profile → Staff Accounts.
  3. Click + Add staff member:

Add a new staff member

  1. Add your login email of the "Store A" to the Enter the email of the person whom you would like to invite field:

Enter your email and click Send invite

  1. Open the inbox that is associated with your "Store A" account and accept the invitation to join the "Store B" team.

That's it. Now when you sign in at https://my.ecwid.com/cp/ with your admin login email of the "Store A", you will be offered to choose the admin panel you’d like to access - either the Ecwid account to which you have full access as the admin (“Store A”) or an Ecwid account where you are the staff user with the same email address (“Store B”):

Select a store you want to manage at the moment

Staff account has no access to the Billing and Plans and Staff Accounts sections of the store managed by it. You’ll need to log in directly to that store’s admin panel using your admin credentials in order to access that information there, if need be.

After you bundle admin panels, in the top right corner of the accessed store you will find the My Stores link — click on it to see the list of your bundled Ecwid accounts and tap the name of a store to quickly switch to its admin panel:

Switching between stores

You can unbundle the stores at any time by logging as administrator into the admin panel of the “Store B” and removing the "Store A" login email from its staff accounts (My Profile → Staff Accounts).
