The Multi User Extension turns a standard Magento®customer account into one with multiple users and sub accounts with different levels of access permissions and unique logins. It creates sub-accounts under a parent customer account (main account).

This multi-user extension is a perfect solution for companies that own a B2C or B2B Magento® online store and would like create one account with multiple sub logins. Companies can control advanced permissions and limit sub-user access and abilities.

For example, one person could be granted the ability to buy merchandise, while another can only view orders and customers, and so on.


Cart Approvals by Account Owner

One of the most important features is the ability to send orders for approval. While a sub account user can add products to the cart, he will need to get approval from the account owner to purchase. This functionality depends on the sub account user permission as set by the account owner.


Using the Multi User Account extension:

  • Multi-User Account– Allow account access to other users
  • Sub-Logins- Create unique sub logins for multiple users
  • Sub-User Abilities– Allow sub-users to create orders, track sales, and modify profile information, depending on defined roles
  • User Management– Add, edit, or delete sub-users and user roles in your Magento® online store
  • Manage User Permissions– Control user permissions per each individual user
  • Security– Prevent site errors and protect sensitive information with strict user permission access controls
  • B2B- Solution for B2B stores that need to grant limited access sub logins
  • Order Viewing – Allow employees to see all orders or only their own
  • User Roles – Provide another person the ability to perform actions on your site according to their role in the company
  • Delegate Store Tasks – Allow online store tasks to be completed by multiple employees, reducing admin time
  • Access Permission Levels – Read Only, Modify Account Information (like addresses, names), Order Creation, Order Creation & Modify Account, Order Creation with Approval
  • Cart Options – Sub-users can share a shopping cart or each user have own separate cart
  • Order Approval – Request for cart approval from the account owner before being able to complete purchase.
  • API – Methods for managing and creating sub-users


Multi User Account Permissions Level:

  • Read Only – Users can view information such as purchase history and reports, but cannot make modifications
  • Modify Account Information – User can only modify general profile information such as addresses and names
  • Order Creation – User can create new orders, but cannot modify profile information
  • Order Creation & Modify Account – User can create orders and modify profile information
