Create a New Merchant

POST /accountmanagement/v1/merchants

To create a merchant, you must initiate a POST request to the merchants endpoint. The merchant will be associated with your partner account with Paysafe.

This API request creates a merchant, which is the first step in the merchant onboarding process. Once the merchant is created, you can then continue with the process, including creating merchant accounts assigned to this merchant. In turn, each merchant account will have to be completed, including adding the owner, owner address, and settlement bank account.

Request Example
curl -X POST https://api.test.paysafe.com/accountmanagement/v1/merchants \
-u devcentre322:B-qa2-0-53625f86-302c021476f52bdc9deab7aea876bb28762e62f92fc6712d0214736abf501e9675e55940e83ef77f5c304edc7968 \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d ' {
         "name" : "Popeye's Gym"
         }'

Prior to trying the example above, you should:

  • Replace the API key (after the -u) with the API key you have received
