Subaccounts for WooCommerce

Skildring

Subaccounts for WooCommerce allows the creation of subaccounts for your WooCommerce customers and subscribers.

Two modes are available:

  • Sub-User mode: multiple separate accounts grouped together under one parent account (e.g. Holding Company).
  • Multi-User mode: multiple users have access to a same master account (useful in case of Corporate Accounts).

The ability to create multiple subaccounts tied to a main parent account is extremely useful in all of the following usage scenarios:

  • companies that need to add and manage accounts for their employees
  • stores that need to place orders from different branches
  • businesses with multiple decision-makers for purchases
  • when parent accounts need to supervise and monitor all the activities made by their own sub-accounts (purchases, expenses, quotes, etc.) and even place orders on behalf of them;
  • in the case of company accounts that need to place orders from different purchasing departments or through multiple purchasing managers (B2B and similar);
  • in those situations where a sales agent or sales representative needs to create new accounts for newly acquired customers and, if desired, place orders on their behalf.

What is a subaccount?

A subaccount (or sub-account) is a secondary account that sits under a main parent account.

What is a Manager?

A Manager is a parent account.

How many subaccounts can be created for each customer/subscriber?

Subaccounts for WooCommerce (free version) gives you the possibility to create up to 10 subaccounts for each Manager (parent account).

With Subaccounts Pro (premium version) each Manager can have an unlimited number of subaccounts.

Can a parent account (Manager) place an order?

Both parent accounts and subaccounts can place orders. Parent accounts can also place orders on behalf of subaccounts, while a subaccount can place orders only for itself.

Is it possible to create multiple nested subaccounts (e.g. a subaccount of another subaccount)?

Only the creation of two account levels is allowed: a main parent account (so called Manager) and one or more subaccounts tied to the parent account.

With Supervisor Add-On it is possible to set a parent account (Supervisor) above a Manager account type, thus allowing you (as an administrator) to create a three-level structure of nested accounts.

Is it possible for an Administrator to create and set a subaccount for a customer from the WordPress backend (admin dashboard)?

This option, along with many others, is only available in Subaccounts Pro, the premium version of the plugin.

Is it possible to switch from Sub-User to Multi-User mode and vice versa after some orders have already been placed?

We have done our best to ensure the highest level of compatibility between the two modes. Despite this, switching from one mode to the other after some orders have already been placed may result in some data being inaccurate.

For this reason we strongly recommend that you choose the mode that best suits your needs and stick with it.

Does the plugin work on multisite installations?

WordPress Multisite installations are not officially supported for now.

We have tested the SubAccount plugin for our corporate wordress site, and it gives us many new administration abilities for our different kinds of user roles. The plugin is great, and the support provided by Mediaticus is very effective ! Thank you for your wonderfull work.

This plugin is outstanding! Was able to create subaccounts for my clients with multiple branches out of the box. Also, their customer support is great, they got back to me within a few hours (while using the free version!!!). Will be upgrading to the pro version very soon to take advantage of the additional functionality. Highly recommend this plugin!

This plugin is perfect for our needs. It is easy to use. The support is amazing! You can rename the attributes with Loco Translate easily. With some CSS you can hide the Company field and you can use it for purposes outside of the business area where subaccounts are needed. When a subaccount is created you can make a purchase with the Manager's account, therefore these data will show up in WooCommerce - The purchase is made on behalf of the subaccount by the Manager's main account. It is useful to read the support and review thread to gain more information. This plugin can be used for multiple purposes not only for company use. The beta version for Multiple Users is under development - it is good to keep an eye on the evolving and new features. Thank you for this great plugin!
