Create a New User

POST /accountmanagement/v1/accounts/account_id/users

Once a merchant account has been created, you can add users to it. Users have access to the functionality of the Paysafe Merchant Back Office for that merchant account, including running reports on transactions run through the account.

To create a user, you must initiate a POST request to the users endpoint.

This API request creates a user that is associated with the merchant account. Once you have created a user, you can associate that user with other merchant accounts when you create them.

You can add the same user to multiple merchant accounts, a single user to each merchant account, or multiple users to the same merchant account.

Adding Users
