Basic Shopify Plan

The Basic Shopify plan offers all the tools you need to run your business. If your store is on the Basic Shopify plan or higher, then you can create and customize an online store to showcase your products. You can manage all your products, orders, and customer information from your Shopify admin.

The Basic Shopify plan doesn't support adding any staff accounts. If you require the ability to add staff members, then you'll need to upgrade to a higher plan such as Shopify, Advanced Shopify, or Shopify Plus.
