When an existing vendor wants to invite another user to work on the products and orders in their dedicated vendor area as a staff member, they create a new user profile and send an invitation to a valid email address. The prosperous user has to accept the invitation to get the role of a vendor staff member.

Here’s how a new staff member accepts the invitation:

Each vendor staff invitation contains a link that a person can use to access the store. When they follow this link, they access a registration form where they can set up their password.

When a new user confirms the account creation with the password submission, they see a prompt to accept the invitation to confirm their status as staff:

The new staff member must click the Confirm button to accept the invitation. The store administrator will see that the invitation was accepted.

The new vendor staff member can now log in to the vendor area and begin their work. The scope of resources available to the new vendor staff member will depend on whether the vendor has given them full or limited access. More information on vendor staff access levels is available in Multiple Profiles for Vendors: Staff Member Access Levels.
