    Prestashop Add Sub-User Account for Buying

    To understand the significance of the Prestashop Add Sub-User Account for Buying module for your eCommerce shop, let me just quote a famous & popular Ethiopian saying.

    When spiders unite, they can tie down a lion

    The proverb is very much practical & keeps the importance in our everyday lives. It conveys a very simple meaning that a work performed by several people tends to complete faster. Whenever there are many people overlooking the completion of work, it completes at a significant rate. And, for such speedy rate of work only, we are bringing this module to you.

    The module upon installation allows customers to add multiple sub-users under them. So that a customer can allow multiple sub-users to create multiple orders & the main user can accordingly place those orders. This thing is quite useful for:

    • Customers who have a large number of family members with varying needs.
    • An organisation having multiple departments with varying degrees of work.

    Now, with this module, customers can allow their subordinates/other family members to create a cart & assign them. After analysing carts, parent users can easily place the orders of their sub-users from their account.

    In the configuration settings, there are two options which I think needs some extra explanation. As you might notice, in the following screenshot two options are highlighted.

    Enabling parent user & sub-user registration option

    On enabling the above two options, a user can choose whether he/she wants to register as parent user or sub-user.

    Create a Parent User

    After the installation of the module, two new options add on the customer registration page at the back end.

    Those two options are:

    • Manage Sub User: If you enable this option, then the customer will register as a parent user. And, you can also add some sub-users under this parent user afterwards.
    • Is Sub-User: If you enable this option, then a new user will register as a sub-user on the shop.
    Create a new customer

    While creating a sub-user, you can also select under which parent user you want to keep this sub-user.

    Create a sub-user from the front end of the shop

    In order to create the sub-users, a parent user needs to sign in to his/her account on the shop.

    Login to the shop using customer credentials

    After signing in to the account, a parent user can see two new tabs on the dashboard. The two new tabs are Sub-Users & Assigned Cart.

    two new options added on customer dashboard

    On clicking the Sub-Users tab, following page will open. In case, if the parent user has no Sub-Users then the list will be empty.

    To add the new sub-user, you can click on the “Add New Sub-User” button.

    Add new sub-user

    On clicking the button, a page same as customer registration page open on the front end of the shop. Here, enter the details & click on the “save” button to create a new sub-user.

    enter details to create a new sub-user

    After saving the details, a new sub-user is added on the shop. You can also choose to edit the details or delete the sub-user upon requirement.

    New sub-user created

    After the parent user creates a sub-user, the sub-user adds to the list of inactive sub-users at the admin’s end. The new sub-user add to the inactive sub-user list only when their account approval & email verification is made mandatory. Otherwise, these sub-user accounts will verify automatically.

    Inactivated sub-users

    The following screenshot shows the template of the email that sub-user receives to verify his/her account.

    On clicking the verify account button in the email, user will redirect to the front end of the website again. And, the screen like the following screenshot will open to notify that account is verified.

    After the approval of account, the name of the sub-user is also removed from the list.

    Assigning the Cart

    Now on proceeding to place the order, a sub-user gets an option to assign the cart to the parent user.

    Assign the cart to parent user

    On assigning the cart, status will now show to “Assigned” in the sub-users account.

    Now, when a parent user wants to see all the assigned cart, he/she can go to the “assigned cart” tab.

    Under “Assigned Cart”, a parent user also gets an option to proceed to checkout & place the order.

    order the assigned carts of sub-users

    After clicking on the “Proceed to Checkout” button, the process is same as placing the order on PrestaShop.

    After the parent user successfully places the order, the status also changes in the sub-users account.
