How To

2. Your account is immediately ready for implementing and testing. Some extra actions are required before you can go ‘live’ with your account.

3. You can go live and provide the available payment methods, as soon as the testing of your account is successful and your request is officially approved.

NB: A special request is needed for credit cards and SEPA Direct Debit recurring. Please be aware that this may take several weeks. Once your account goes live, you can provide every available payment method for your account type in your webshop, except for credit cards and SEPA Direct Debit recurring. You can only offer these payment methods in your webshop once your request for them is approved.
