Dropship - Managing Teams

Premier plan in Anstrex Dropship allows you to manage teams of multiple people who can selectively manage your stores via Anstrex Dropship Web App and Chrome Extension.

The procedure varies depending on which store platform you are using and are described as follows:

Team Management for Shopify Store Owners


It is important to note that Anstrex Dropship relies on Shopify's internal staff/team management feature for addition, removal and permissions of individual team members.

  1. On your Shopify store's admin console, go to Settings > Users & Permissions > Staff section.
  2. Click Add Staff

    Create Staff/Team Member Account on Shopify

  3. Provide team members credentials and gran permissions as described below
    1. If you intend to allow the team member to manage products on your store (add/remove/edit products), please grant Products permission
    2. If you intend to allow the team member to manage orders on your store (fulfill orders, change the order status), you must grant Orders permission and all the secondary permissions under the order tab
    3. You must grant permission to access Anstrex Shopify App to allow him to access Anstrex platform as shown below
