Active Merchants

The Active Merchant page of your Reseller Console allows you to monitor and manage all of the active merchants in your system. You can search your merchant list for a specific merchant by company or contact name.

The list of merchants is sorted by Company (default), Contact, Credit Card Processing Platform, or the date on which the application was last updated. Click the column header to reorder the list. The total number of active merchants currently in the system is displayed to the top right of the column headers.

If your account is enabled for multiple resellers, the bar at the top of the merchant application list will alert you to which reseller accounts are being reported on in the merchant application tracking system.

To change which resellers are included in this section, click on the bar and you will be able to move resellers from a list of “available resellers” to “selected resellers” and vice versa.

Simply click on the reseller that you would like to add or remove from the track applications list and click on the corresponding button. When you have selected the desired resellers to include in the “selected resellers” list, simply click the save button to preserve your changes and return to the list of applications. If you do not wish to save your changes, click Cancel and your changes will be discarded and you will be returned to the list of merchant applications.
