Congratulations, you’ve decided to take your business into the world of crypto with the PumaPay PullPayment Protocol!
We’ve put together a guide with all the necessary steps for you to start accepting cryptopayments easily through the PumaPay Business Console.
But what is the Business Console?
The PumaPay Business Console is a user-friendly tool for Merchants to start accepting single and recurring payments in PMA tokens.
We have specifically designed this easy-to-use tool to help you set up everything you need for cryptopayment adoption including, the creation of billing models, QR Codes and payment buttons which you can use on your website. The Business Console also allows you to keep track of all your earnings from sales – all in one convenient location!
How do I start using the Business Console?
To start using the Business Console, you’ll need to:
- Register an account
- Submit your business details
- Verify and receive approval of your business details
We’ll cover connecting your Wallet in the next guide but for now, let’s dive in to getting you set up!
1. Registering an account
It’s pretty standard procedure here! Just add your company name, email and password, then verify your email to proceed to the next step.
Just make sure you pick a secure password with both upper- and lowercase lettering, and also numbers and symbols.
After pressing continue, we’ll send you an email to verify your address. So, once you’ve received it just click on the link in the email and log in using your email and password.
2. Business Details
After verifying your email address and logging in, you’ll be able to see a dashboard where you can submit your Business Details.
Complete the form making sure to pay attention to the ‘Type of Company’ field – it’s important that the option you pick truly reflects the type of business you are! (This is how we make sure you upload the necessary documents to support your application).
After completing, just double-check your details and watch out for any typos! Our Compliance Team won’t be able to approve your account if your details and documents you’ll upload in the next step don’t match, and you’ll have to reapply.
Once you have completed the form go ahead and click ‘Submit’!
Getting this error message?
If you’re having trouble moving past this stage, have a look at our checklist to make sure your details are being entered correctly:
- Don’t include spaces when entering your Zip Code.
- Don’t include any accents in your name.
- When entering your Mobile Phone number, be sure to enter the number first and then select the appropriate country.
If you’re still having trouble with your application, please contact the PumaPay Support Team.
Now that you’ve submitted your Business Details, you can now enter the Verification section where you’ll be able to upload details about your company’s registration documents including passports and proof of address of your company’s major shareholders and directors.
Please note: in the case that you as the account administrator are an employee or a third party, you’ll also need to have an authorization letter from your company.
Once you’ve submitted everything, it’s over to our Compliance Team to approve your account, this can take a few days so keep an eye on your inbox!
You’ll be notified by email once this is completed – but be aware, we will also notify you if additional documentation is required.
Once you have received your verification email, you’ll have access to the PumaPay Business Console. Have a look at our next blog post where we’ll start to explore the Console more and the PumaPay Wallets.
