Shopify Plus rolled out a new feature on April 14, 2020 that seems to have gotten a little lost in the Corona hoopla. As of this date, as a Shopify Plus merchant (or merchant), you can combine and manage multiple stores under one organization admin area. This enhancement will be gradually released to merchants over the next few months. You can get a brief and summarized look at the features and new tools in this post.

Who does the Shopify administration area affect?
The new admin area is intended to make organization easier in the future and is aimed at all users of Shopify Plus plans. It is an extension of the standard Shopify admin area.
Shopify Plus users should have received an email about this, informing them that the new tool is enabled. In the admin area, you should now see a new vertical navigation on the left edge that allows you to access all your stores. However, you will only have access to the stores if you have been granted permission by the store owner.
By the way, the first person who gets access to the admin area of the Shopify organization is the organization owner, who has full permissions and cannot be removed or deleted. He has the ability to manage users. The store owner of the main store is automatically the organization owner.
What are the advantages of the Shopify Plus admin area?
The Shopify Plus tool has three functions in particular, which we would like to present in more detail below. Some of the advantages of the Shopify admin area become clear right away.
