If you have multiple websites or stores that you would like to connect to different Privy accounts, you may want to create Privy subaccounts for those websites.
You should use subaccounts if:
- You have multiple distinct stores or sub-brands, and you want a Privy business for each of them.
- You want one consolidated bill from Privy for all the accounts.
- You have a single brand and multiple websites (for example, country-specific domains or currency-specific versions of your shop).
- You want a staging/test environment for previewing changes before making them on the business connected to your live store.
You should not use subaccounts if:
- You need Privy businesses to be billed separately. Subaccounts can't be billed separately.
- You always want to run identical displays on multiple sites. Campaigns can't be shared across accounts, even subaccounts.
- Pro Tip: Instead, install the Privy code for your second business on a that website manually.
- You are an agency working on behalf of clients. Subaccounts can't be billed separately and shouldn't be resold to third parties without prior agreement from Privy. Agencies should create a new business for each client.
- If the parent/primary account adds or removes subscription plans or features, any subaccounts is automatically update to reflect the plan of the parent account.
- Subaccounts are not billed separately, so merchants will receive a consolidated bill for all businesses in an account.
- Privy subaccounts always inherit the traffic enforcement state, trial state, and features of the parent account.
- Traffic from subaccounts will be "rolled up" to parent accounts for billing purposes.
- Mailable contacts from subaccounts will be rolled up to the parent account for billing purposes. Contacts will be counted each time they appear in a subaccount.
- The following features are not shared or inherited between parent accounts and subaccounts:
- User permissions
- Sending domains
- Linked Accounts
- Campaign templates
- Email templates
