    Prestashop Add Sub-User Account for Buying

    Updated 31 March 2023

    The extension 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 organisation which has multiple departments with varying degrees of work.

    Note: Prestashop Add Sub-User Account for Buying is compatible with PrestaShop version 8.x.x.

    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.

    These 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.

    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 store front

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


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


    On clicking the button, a form opens on the page where a parent user needs to fill in the details to create a 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.


    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. Else, these sub-user accounts will be verified automatically.


    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 gets removed from the list.


    Assigning Cart

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


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

    Parent User’s Account

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


    Under “Assigned Cart”, a parent user can:

    • Proceed to checkout and place the order.
    • View the cart.
    • Delete the cart.

    On clicking the View button, a popup appears on the page where a parent user can view the cart details.


    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.


    The details of an order by parent user is also available at the admin’s end.
