To access and use TestBench Cloud Services, a respective subscription is required (for the trial period of TestBench Cloud Services see point 9.). The contractual partner of the end-user (your company) regarding the subscription is 2Checkout. Different subscription periods are available, i.e., per month, per quarter or year. The end-user can subscribe to a single user or a specific number of concurrent users. When subscribing, a corresponding tenant has to be entered by you for each subscription.

The maximum numbers of single or concurrent users, which are attributed to one tenant, are defined by all subscriptions where you have entered this tenant.
