The name of your store is verified here. 

Store URL: This page confirms the URL for your store. If you wish to launch it in a different browser, choose it. 

Data synchronization: After data synchronization, if one of your Shopware customers has changed, such as by unsubscribing from your store, this is recorded in dotdigital. Five minutes after the last sync procedure completes, we try to synchronize. Each sync could take a few seconds to many hours to complete, depending on how much data you’re processing. If necessary, you can switch data syncing on or off. By choosing Sync immediately, you can also force an unscheduled sync. 

Now you have everything set up and can start building your platform with Shopware.
