Step 2: Set up a merchant account

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.

Step 3: 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.

Step 4: Get your PCI compliance certificate

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. 
You can get your certificate quickly and cheaply from Trustwave, our Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) partner.

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.

Step 5: Optional – Integrate with your back end systems

If you’re using call center software, CRM solution or another backend system, you may want to integrate it with our payment technology for a more seamless experience.
