Key:              Five groups of four letters and numbers

Name/Merchant ID: Your store name

Note that there is a second set of credentials that enables access to reporting and to the Merchant Warehouse

Payment Gateway. For that you need:

 

Username    Usually contains a part of your store name and digits

Password

ID Number: Usually a four digit number

 

Note that these last three enable you to verify payments online at

 

https://ps1.merchantware.net

or

You can also process or void or report payments there *independently* of Jewelry Shopkeeper

The below instructions assume you have a MagTek Magnesafe encrypted credit card reader. This must come from

Merchant Warehouse because the encryption must be set by them.

or email program, you should see mostly gobbledygook.

 

If you have a different reader, please let us know
