A root store administrator and an administrator with user management permissions can create new user accounts of any available user type.
For this purpose:
Open the Users page in your store Admin area.
X-Cart 5.4.x - Users > Users List
X-Cart 5.5.x - Store > Users
NOTE: X-Cart 5.5.x allows creating customer accounts from Communication > Customers. The process is the same as described further.
Click Add User. You will see the Create Profile page.
On the Create Profile page, fill out the profile fields.
Email: Specify the user email. It must be a valid email address, as your store will use it for account verification and password restoration.
Password: Click the button to add the account password. Password must contain at least 8 symbols. You will also need to confirm the password you specified.
Access level: Specify the user access level. Available options are:
Customer: This is the default option.
Admin: If you select to create an administrator account, set the appropriate roles for it in the field that opens below. See more information about roles here.
Vendor: This user type is available only in the X-Cart Marketplace (ex. Multi-Vendor) edition.
Roles (visible for the Admin and Vendor users only): Click the field to grant specific permissions to the staff. See more information about access permissions here.
Membership: Click the field to select the membership level for the user account (optional). Leave blank if no membership is applicable.
Require to change the password on the next login: Enable the checkbox to force the user to change the account password on the next sign-in.
Click Create Account.
