Manage Users

From time to time, you may want to add or remove a user from your account.

The User Management page allows you to create, remove, and edit usernames in your account.  Once you have logged in, click on the Account tab and then click the User Management sub-tab. This will open the User Management page where you can create, remove, and edit usernames in your account.

The username table lists all usernames on your account and the date that they were created. This table also provides you with access to change the username’s access settings.

  • Basic Editing – Provides the user with access to edit basic account information (Contact information, Shipping information, Site Management) and preform sale maintenance (cancel recurring, refund, mark shipped).

  • Financial Read Only – Provides the user with access to view your payment information.

  • Financial Editing – Provides the user with access to change view and change banking wizard information.

  • Admin – Provides the user with access to create, manage and remove usernames.

  • API Access – Enables read-only access for the username. The username can be used to retrieve information from the account, but cannot edit information.

  • API Updating – Enables read/write access for the username. The username can be used to retrieve information from the account, as well as make modifications to products and other account information.

Please Note: A username with API access cannot be used to log in to the vendor account, as it is used only for authentication purposes.
