The addon allows the store administrator to control what access level different users have to the back-end functions. For this purpose a store administrator creates additional staff accounts as administrator users and defines roles for each staff member who needs access to the back-end functions. A user can have more than one role. 

Here is the list of available roles:

  • Root access – means no restrictions at all;
  • Manage catalog – allows users having the role to edit the product catalog;
  • Manage users – gives users permissions to edit user profiles;
  • Manage administrators – gives users permissions to edit administrator profiles;
  • Manage orders – allows users to view orders, update order statuses, change products, make refunds, etc;
  • Manage import – allows importing products to the online store catalog;
  • Manage export – allows exporting the catalog;
  • Manage banners – allows uploading and configuring banners in your eCommerce website;
  • Allow unfiltered HTML - allows pasting the script code right inside the WYSIWYG areas in the static pages or product descriptions;
  • Manage news - allows adding, editing and removing news to the news section in the storefront;
  • Manage coupons – allows managing coupons;
  • Manage volume discounts - allows configuring discounts based on the total price of ordered products and customer's membership level;
  • Manage conversations - gives access to the messages that customers leave to their orders and allows chatting with them.

You can extend the list by creating custom modules or installing extensions from X-Cart Modules Marketplace.

For example, the Simple CMS addon (enabled by default) adds two more permission groups to the list:

  • Manage custom pages – allows users to create and edit custom website pages;
  • Manage menus – allows editing the primary menu and footer links.

Multi-vendor addon adds the following roles:

  • Manage vendor's catalog;
  • Manage vendor's orders;
  • Manage vendor's shipping settings.
