Merchant Service Accounts

Overview

The Merchant Service Accounts screen is where existing accounts can be viewed, and new Merchant Service Accounts created.

This type of User account is meant for machines connecting to the system, rather than individual Users. They are issued an API Key that is autogenerated by the system, rather than selecting a password.

This is not a full service type of account and has very limited permissions.

It may view:

  • Merchant Hierarchy
  • Reports
    Has read/write access to:
  • Create Orders
  • Authorisation
  • Authorisation Reversal
  • Capture (including partial)
  • Void and
  • Refunds (including partial)
    May view and download:
  • Outlet Reports and
  • Transaction Data

  2. Click the New button. An Add service account slide-out box reveals.

    The system automatically generates a unique API key and attaches it to the new merchant service account.
