Having a multi-user Magento extension allows a single user to have multiple sub user accounts. It’s essential for any Magento store.
The multi-user extensions in this list are top rated, high quality, and have a range of important features for a successful Magento store. They are all good ways to have multiple users and sub accounts under the same master account but with different user permissions, without much hassle.
1) Ultimate Multi-User Magento Extension
With the multi-user extension from CreativeMinds, the admin can create multiple sub user accounts and the account owner can create an unlimited number of sub accounts. Employers can make separate logins for each employee and different permissions can be granted to different people based on role.
The extension is available for $149 for 1 live website and 2 test hosts. Free 12 month support is included and there is the option of a $59 fee for installation.
The admin can delete user accounts at any time and filter sub users by name, email, permissions, etc. The extension is also available for Magento 2.
The Magento 2 extension has everything users need to create and manage sub logins under one Magento account.
2) Advanced Permissions
With this M2 extension, admins can manage multi-stores and assign new custom role permissions to specific managers. These sub-admins can only view and edit particular products, categories, and websites that the admin allows.
As with other multi user extensions, this provides an extra layer of security, as the admin can select which users have access to sensitive data or actions, such as deleting products.
3) B2B Company Accounts
This extension offers parent-child hierarchy for company accounts. They work similarly as any B2C account, albeit with company fields such as VAT and address.
The admin can choose roles and permissions of child-accounts, including if they can see and/edit orders, quotes, credit information and more.
B2B Company Accounts cost from $199 to $279 with free installation and the payment restriction module. The price affects the support life.
4) CedCommerce Vendor Sub Account
The Vendor Sub Account is an addon with free installation. The vendor sends requests to multiple users to add a sub user. Sub accounts are used when the vendor is unable to manage products or create users with restricted access.
With this addon, users can accept or reject sub vendor requests and vendors can disapprove the sub accounts. No two sub accounts can exist with the same email ID which is also an extra security measure.
The addon is $99, but requires the base Marketplace extension, which costs at least $60, making the combination $159.
In conclusion, all of these multi-user Magento extensions are helpful solutions for creating and managing sub accounts in the platform. Some have more features than others and it is important to choose the right extension for your business and products.
