How to manage users in X-Cart

Review on how to manage the users on your X-Cart website

This tutorial will review the user management in X-Cart. You can create customer roles and assign them to new or existing users on your website. This is a good feature that allows you to manage your employees and what your customers see on your website.


You have the option to create users or create different roles on your website. This is an important feature as you may want to add employees to your website, responsible for different tasks. This way, you can group the employees together, instead of adding them and configure their access rights one by one.


To fully manage your userbase, you will need to:

Step 1 Create Roles in X-Cart

To create a new user role on your website, simply log in as administrator. Click on the Users button from the menu and then Roles.
