# Getting started

# Create an account

If you do not have an Orderwave account, contact us to get started. We can create your instance and get you ready to start.

# Create a user account

If you (or your company) already have an Orderwave account, but you need a user-account, contact your Orderwave administrator. If your administrator has enabled Registration for your Orderwave account, you can create your own Orderwave user-account.
