User guide

Welcome to the N-Genius Online user guide. This guide is written for merchants and developers using the N-Genius Online payment gateway to accept online payments.

On the Merchant portal, you can create all the users you need to manage your business.

Overview

The Users screen is the management area where you add, edit, suspend, reactivate and delete Users.
Users can only be added and edited by Users with Merchant Admin roles.

Open User Settings

  1. Select the Settings option from the top Main menu bar. The Settings menu bar displays.
    The Users page opens by default.
  2. Go to the procedure you want below.

User Status

The status controls which actions can be performed on that User Account. The User statuses are:

Pending
The User has not yet verified their email address and set up a password for their User account. They have no access to the system.
The pending User account can be deleted, or their activation email re-sent by the Merchant Admin. The User’s name, role and organisation access can be edited. No other actions are possible.

Active
The User is active on the system and has access to the options their role has permission for.

The active User’s name, role and organisation access can be edited by the Merchant Admin. They can also suspend, activate or delete the User.

Deleted
The User has been deleted from the system. No record of the User is kept, and no further actions can be taken on the User account.

Suspended
The User has been suspended and they have no access to the system.
The suspended User’s name, role and organisation access can be edited by the Merchant Admin. They can also delete or activate the User.

Locked
The User’s account has been locked and they have no access to the system. This is a result of five failed attempts to log in to the portal.
The suspended User’s name, role and organisation access can be edited by the Merchant Admin. They can also delete, suspend or unlock the User.

Add New User

New Users can be added to the system from the Users page. The role they’re assigned to sets what rights they have in the system and what they can view. The organisation they are assigned to sets which organisation data they are able to view.

Note: Each User must have a unique email address. Duplicate Users with the same email address are not permitted by the system.

If the new User doesn't respond or loses the activation email, it can be sent again.
