Ownership and management

I'm new to shopify and it's processes, and I'm looking for some advice. Based on very limited web design experience, I signed up for a  shopify trial with the intent of building a store for a 3rd party (actually a family member). I'm in the final phases of the site and looking to transfer the site to the new owner. While I will not be the owner, I will be the primary person to maintain the site and show the owner how to use it. After checking on how to do a ownership transfer, I see that  shopify recommends updating our current basic plan to a small teams plan in order continue to have access to the site for upkeep. At this point we are a very small operation, and upgrading is not a good option, as it is cost prohibitive right now. I'm thinking being added as a collabarator might serve our needs. Has any one else had an issue like this, or could offer some other advice I'm not aware of?

Thanks

You wouldn't necessarily need to be added as a staff member. You can be added on your partner account as a collaborator with full access instead. That's how I operate with my main customer which I manage full-time

@Aep59 - You would transfer ownership of the store, and you could be added to the store as a staff member (settings > users and permissions > add staff). When adding a staff member, you are able to select what areas of the store the staff member has control over.

Hi Paul,

Not sure if you saw in my original post that to add be added as a staffer, I would need to upgrade my  current basic plan to a small teams plan, and thats what I want to avoid.

Thanks

@Aep59 - on the basic ($39/mo) Shopify plan you can add two staff accounts.
