A merchant account is a special bank account that can receive money from credit card and debit card payments. It is different from your normal business bank account and doesn't need to be with the same bank.

The bank that your merchant account is set up with is known as an ‘acquiring bank’ or ‘acquirer’.

This MID will also define the type of settings in which you can accept card payments. For example face to face, online, or over the phone.

Yes. You can use your existing merchant account, but you may need to request a new MID from your acquiring bank. These are typically provided at no additional charge. Once you have your new MID let us know and we’ll set it up with your Pay360 service.
