What is a Merchant in Centrapay?
A merchant is an initiator of Payment Requests. A Merchant has Merchant Configs that define the payment methods available for a Payment Request.
Most businesses may only need one merchant. If a business is managed by the same company and has multiple locations we would recommend having each location listed as a merchant in the same business account.
For example there might be a business called “Centra Perk Ltd.” that manages Centra Perk Ponsonby and Centra Perk Taupo.
How do I create a Merchant?
Once you have created your Business Account, on the merchants page click “Add a Merchant” to create and configure your first merchants with;
- Merchant name
- Address of service
- Terminal integrations
- Asset integrations
- Settlement details
Once you are ready you can create the merchant.
NOTE: If you do not have all the information needed with you, simply populate the information you do have, hit create and continue when you have the remaining details.
