Creating staff accounts

In order for your staff to access Commerce7, you will need to set them up with a Commerce7 account. To do this, you must have unique email addresses for all staff accessing Commerce7.

It is also important to note that only Admin Owners on your account will be able to add staff accounts.

For improved security, Commerce7 cannot add accounts on your behalf and Partners (i.e designers, developers etc.) can only add staff from their own Company.


To setup a staff account in Commerce7 start by clicking on Settings > Accounts.
