General section

Tenant: You will likely need your tenant name when working with a designer or third-party developer. Also, when emailing our support team questions, we will often refer to your 'tenant name' in C7. This is where you can find that information. The tenant name cannot be changed after signup.

Company: This is the Company name you signed up with. This can be edited if required.

Website URL: When you first signup with Commerce7, your website URL will look something like this: https://this-is-a-test.template.commerce7.com. Since it typically takes a bit for a web designer to get your new site setup with Commerce7, your template will allow you to get a preview of how Commerce7 looks by visiting your template site. When you have a development URL and/or a live site with Commerce7 widgets installed, you can update the Website URL field accordingly.
