I have an account, but am unsure how to connect it to my Modular Merchant account. Any guidance you can provide would be appreciated.

The System Settings have several fields in which you can enter your Merchant Account info. Once entered, your Modular Merchant store will begin to communicate with your Merchant Account to validate and process credit cards.

Your account's System Settings are located in your store's Administration Area, through [Admin > System Settings].

[Admin > System Settings].

The Merchant Account Settings are option #33-38. Here you can select and fill in the necessary information for your credit card payment gateway (such as, and also enter your login for PayPal Website Payments Standard.

#35 - Credit Card Validation Amount

#36 - Capturing of funds
Select authorize AND collect the funds to to capture the funds from store orders when they are placed.  Select authorize funds only (collection done manually later) to authorize the funds only.  If the latter is selected, the user must log into the payment gateway's admin area/virtual terminal to capture the funds.

Users of the payment gateway can also capture the funds on the Search Orders page.

#37 - Credit Card payment processing gateway
Use the dropdown menu to select the payment gateway that your store will send the credit card authorizations to.  Once the payment gateway has been selected, some additional options to input the account holder's login credentials will become available.

Select Manual (Process Offline) when testing the store prior to opening it to the public.  That way, a live credit card needn't be inputted to place orders.

Don't have a payment gateway account?  We recommend  You can get started here:

Gateway Credentials
To finish the integration with your payment gateway, input the gateway login credentials.

Manual (Process Offline) does not require any gateway credentials.

#38 - PayPal Account Login
