5. Log into your master account using the master account link in the confirmation email and add it to your browser's bookmarks for future use.
Using the Master Account
Once you've confirmed your master account you can log in and you will see a list of the company account associated with your master account.
1. Adding Accounts
You can add additional accounts by clicking the "Add Account" link and completing the form. Once added the new company will appear in your list of Accounts. A confirmation email will be sent to confirm the account, and once confirmed you will be able to log in and set up the accounts.
