Are you ready to process payments and get going? Great! Make sure you have your Merchant ID (MID) and Bank Accounts assigned to the properties to get going.
In order to process payments two (2) items must occur:
1) a Merchant ID (MID) has to be created by submitting an application to our processing partner in Canada, BluePay Canada. This process can take up to five (5) business days.
2) Once a MID has been assigned, the MID has to be assigned to the properties in question in order for the system to know where to send the funds by property. To do this, go to Properties --> Buildings --> SELECT BUILDING IN QUESTION --> ACTIONS --> Select Merchant Account. Choose the correct bank account for this property.
You can get a step by step walkthrough by clicking on HELP and searching: SELECTING MERCHANT ACCOUNT.
