Creating your first Merchant

To start accepting payments, you'll need to create a Merchant ID (MID) in the BVNK portal. Navigate to Settings and select "Manage Merchants" to get started.


Select "Manage merchants" from the BVNK settings page

You can have as many merchants as you need to build your product - each merchant can have its own branding, name, and currency, and is attached to one of your wallets in the Business Account.


Select "Create New Merchant" to create your first merchant.

Each Merchant will require a Display Name that your customers will see, a Wallet that your payments will settle into, and a Webhook URL that you'll receive status updates about your payments.

From this page, you'll be able to see all the details relating to your Merchant.
