3. From the next menu, click Account

4. Under the Staff members heading, click the Add a staff member button

5. Utilize an available email address that you control, such as "", for the Username 

6. Fill in the staff member details and click the Send Invite button

Once you have completed these steps, your account manager will receive an invitation to your Shopify store allowing them access.

Note: It is recommended the new Shopify staff member retain Full access at least until the integration process is complete.
