Many WooCommerce store owners are constantly looking for solutions that will help them manage their stores better. This is critical for them when trying to update relevant prices, relevant product inventory, and a host of other actions that can help increase sales.
Up until now, there weren’t any convenient solutions for managing the store on the go. That is, if you own a physical store and want to manage the online store at the same time, you must devote valuable time to this issue, and sit down at your computer to update prices for existing products or if you want to temporarily remove a product from the “shelves” if it’s out of stock.

The official WooCommerce app does allow for some actions, but when it comes to partitioning and sub-users, it’s simply not enough – though, it’s definitely changing!
WooCommerce app + users + websites
Most retail businesses have employees. Although these employees are responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business, they are sometimes called upon to help manage the online store as well. But there lies a problem – the business owner does not want the employee to have access to extensive financial information or maybe change details of products offered for sale online. This poses a challenge.
Many businesses that have tried to work with WooCommerce’s official app have discovered that in order to connect a website, they had to install a heavy add-on called JETPACK on it, then connect to a WordPress.com account, and only then could they access the online store – to all of it. It isn’t suitable for business owners who want to watch for compartmentalization and privacy of information.
Therefore, in our app – we have a different approach.
We mean it, ask us anything!
Multiple Websites and Users in the WooCommerce Application
The WEmanage app for WooCommerce websites, (download for Android | download for iPhone) was designed by us – a website management company, that truly knows the field and bases the design over insights provided to us by our many customers.
That’s why we’ve created the following actions for our app users:
- 1. Adding several websites to the account (for those who have additional stores).
- 2. Adding several users to each website, with different access permissions.
Basically, what we’ve done is that we have enabled adding several websites to a single account, and on each website, you’ll have the option of granting different or the same permissions to every sub-user. That way, the sub-users only have access to the information that is relevant to them, and you can delegate the day-to-day operation between several different employees, each according to their personal responsibilities.
For each website, you can choose what kind of access you wish to grant each user:
- Authorization to manage products (inventory and prices).
- Authorization to manage orders (handling and information).
- Authorization to manage communications (chat and inquiries).
- Authorization to manage promotions (coupons/promotions).
- And any additional action that will be developed in the future could also be separated between the different users.
This way, you can ask one employee (for example, a warehouse worker) to take care of updating prices and stocks, while another employee (for example, a cashier) deals with the orders that are received when the business owner is constantly dealing with their other customers that arrive at the physical store.
Although these capabilities sound simple, they are advanced and complex to implement, because the different notifications must be regulated according to the website, the sub-user’s access, and, of course, according to the individual settings of every user.
So, try it, enjoy it, and you can thank us if we’ve made your life a little easier 🙂
