Overview Quickly Get Started with EdgeCTP

This post will show you how to quickly get started with EdgeCTP after you’ve logged in for the very first time.  You’ll learn how to:

  • Set Up Your Company Details
  • Manage Signatures, Users + Passwords
  • Change Settings + Connections, e.g. Chambers and Formal Undertakings

Set Up Your Company Details

The first time you log in (using information from the Welcome email you are received when you signed-up to EdgeCTP) you’ll arrive at the Company settings page.  You should fill in as many of the fields as possible, in each tab/section of the Company page (red fields with an asterisk (*) are mandatory), because this will save you time later when you’re creating trading documents, etc.

Company setup within EdgeCTP EdgeCTP: Company details

  • Main Details – these are the key fields related to your company, and you should try and complete almost all of them
  • Logo – add your logo image to this section, so if you create a quote, invoice, etc., then your logo will appear on the document automatically
  • Address
    1. Primary – this is your primary business address, which you should fill in
    2. Secondary – this is your secondary business address, and if it’s the same as your primary address, then click the [Copy from Primary Address] button
    3. Invoice – this is any address you wish to show on invoice and invoice related documents, such as certificates of origin or formal undertakings with Chambers of Commerce.  If you plan on doing trading certificates, then make sure this Invoice address corresponds with the address you wish to also show on the certificates + chamber of commerce formal undertakings, because the business address on the Invoice, Certificates, and Formal Undertaking must all be the same.  If the Invoice business is the same as your primary address, then click the [Copy from Primary Address] button
