1. Overview

Magento 2 Company Account extension allows the admin to switch a normal account to a company account.

Then, the company admin - who first registered for the company account, can create and share access to the account for multiple users with different roles/permissions.

2. How Does It Work?

2.1. General settings

Company-Account-General-Settings.
Company Account general settings

Please go to Stores => Configurations => Magento 2 Company Account.

Set Enable Company Account to Yes.

In Email Config, choose the sender and templates.

Notes:

In "Send Active Email Copy to" and " Send Deactive Email Copy to", input multiple emails separated by commas.

2.2. A customer registers for an account in the storefront.

Customers register for an account and wait for the admin to switch it into a company account.

To start with, a customer will sign up for a new account via the default registration form.

Then, he/she needs to contact the store admin to switch the created account to the company account in the backend.

2.3. Approve/Reject company accounts in the backend

Manage all registered accounts in Customers grid

All registered accounts, including company accounts, are reported in the Customers grid. Upon contact with the customer, the admin then switches a normal account to the company account in 2 ways:

on the Customer Edit page

Under Account Information, there is a new field "Is Company Account".

  • By setting this field to Yes, a company account is now available.
  • Setting it to No means the account is just a normal account.
Mass action is allowed

Otherwise, the store admin can change multiple accounts to company accounts or remove them from company accounts with the mass action.

[NOTES]

Install Magento 2 Customer Attributes extension and
Magento 2 B2B Registration extension to streamline the communication!

Magento 2 B2B Registration helps create an additional registration for company account so that you can divide company accounts and normal accounts into separate groups for better management.

More importantly, company accounts are pending for the store admin to review and approve/reject.
