Companies
The purpose of the companies section is to provide a method for linking product catalogs and classes to customers.

Having already created a first custom catalog and price class, you will now want to create a new company, selecting the catalog and class accordingly. You can also define a company credit limit here, to be applied against orders processed with the "Company Credit" payment method.

Next, you can link a customer to the company by navigating to the customer administration page and selecting "Add to B2B company" from the "More actions" menu. Administrative users are able to modify company-wide data, while buyers are only able to generate quotes, lists and orders on behalf of the company.

This process tags the customer with identifiers for the newly created company and its constituent catalog and price class, allowing the app to appropriately map customers to products and variants.
