Getting Started

Step 1: Authentication

Creating your Mercoa Instance

To create your Mercoa instance, please book a call with our team here. We'll help you get set up and answer any questions you may have.

Getting your API Keys

You can find your API key and Organization ID in the Mercoa Dashboard.

Do not expose this key on the front-end, it is for back-end use only.

Creating a Payer

A payer is a person or business that pays bills on your platform or app.

When creating your first payer, we recommend using the Mercoa Dashboard. This will allow you to get familiar with the Mercoa Dashboard and the payer creation process.

You can also create a payer using the Mercoa API.

You can create a payer with just a name and email address. Mercoa can automatically collect the rest of the payer's information with our Payer Onboarding flow.

Once you've created your payer, you will have an entityId that you can use to create a token for the payer.
