- ESP Controlled – ESP has full control of the client’s store. We make the changes, updates, and additions for the client. (Should be most expensive tier in my opinion)
- Client Controlled – The client has full control of their store. They make the changes, updates, and additions.
- Joint Control – ESP and the client has control of the client’s store. The client will be responsible for making any changes, updates, and additions to their store. ESP will only implement custom changes that involve programming.
The multi-store feature enables you to run more than one store from a single ESP Stores Admin interface. This enables you to host more than one front-end store on different domains and manage all admin operations from your single Administration panel. You can share catalog data between stores, have a product in more than one store for example, and your customers can log-in to all of your stores using the same credentials. This is especially useful if you have multiple publications under your company umbrella.
