They don't show a picture of the controller or mention it, the only reference is to the software Scarve which I haven't heard of but from the pictures it isn't Benbox.

I suspect they already loaded firmware, you may want to connect to the machine (try 115200 baud rate) using a terminal program (Arduino IDE, CoolTerm or even my T2Laser software in debug mode) to see what the welcome string says.

If it's using Grbl 0.9 or higher you probably don't need to worry about changing it just yet, just try a different software.

It looks like you connected, but didn't receive any welcome message from Grbl.

Possibly they didn't install the firmware. Without knowing what controller you have I can't suggest the correct firmware. If you post a picture of the board I may be able to help.
