Set up a merchant account

To accept different payment types like Visa and MasterCard, you will need one or multiple merchant accounts (or merchant IDs). This allows your payments to be authorised and transferred into your business bank account.

Tell me more about merchant accounts

You can get a merchant account in two ways:

You can tell us which option you'd like to go for in the Opayo application form. If you need some advice on which option is best for your business just get in touch. We're here to support you 24/7.


Integrate your Elavon Financial Services DAC software with Opayo

Depending on the Elavon Financial Services DAC software you’re using, you will need to follow a few simple instructions in the guides below:

Process a test transaction and go live

Before we get to the exciting bit – putting your account live – we need you to put through a test transaction followed by a refund using MySagePay.
Once that's done we can make your account live. You will now be ready to start accepting payments.  
Remember you must also have you Merchant IDs validated before we can make your account live. We can do this before or after your test transaction.

Get your PCI compliance certificate

When you start accepting card payments from your customers you must get a PCI DSS certificate. This shows you are complying with payment industry standards. This protects you and your shoppers.
Tell me more about PCI DSS compliance
Opayo is certified to the highest level PCI DSS Level 1. This reduces your compliance requirements significantly unless you have chosen the direct integration method.

Remember: If the bank setting up your merchant account(s) has their own Qualified Security Assessor partner then you'll need to go with them rather than Trustwave.
