Considering the poor spelling it's likely not a professional service you'd want to engage with regardless of the silly low price. I'd avoid as there will be a catch somewhere (and it could come via unlicensed themes, or other copyright problems)

Hi. Thanks Jason for your answer. I met him in Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/shopifydropshippinghot/ 

There are a lot of people out there posing as Shopify experts and offering to build a Shopify store for free. That guy claims this "Actually Shopify pay me as some referral commission after your plan activation. Shopify pay me after 4 months If you can run your store successfully minimum4 months"

Is it ok to give him access to my Shopify store as a colaborator or staff to do all that work he told me? Can he do something bad? He can't see my bank card details?

Shopify partners can get referral $ so that's likely what they are talking about there. If you feel confident that the person is someone you want to work with then collaborator access is a good way to give store access. Limit their access to only what they need as it's a good security process regardless of platform.

 

A collaborator will never have access to Store Owner settings like your bank card details.

 

Now as for the "can he do something bad" - it's possible, but this is where the confidence needs to play a part. When someone works on your store whether it be managing products or your theme it means they will have the ability to edit or delete things (like a product, or theme code). If you can't trust someone to do the right things, that should be your gut sense guide to not give access.

 

If you experience any issues with them or no longer feel confident you can easily revoke their access.

 

If you are still not sure, ask for an existing client of theirs that you can speak to.
