Don't have a merchant account or payment gateway?
No problem. You can begin using CheddarGetter in a development capacity without one, or get started using PayPal immediately.
There are three todo items for you to checkoff before you can start accepting credit card payments. The good news is that all three of these processes can run in parallel:
- Signup for a free CheddarGetter account. By default, your
account will be in gateway simulation mode. This typically
does not need to be changed. You can configure CheddarGetter to
behave exactly the way you want it to behave and utilize the API to
present a billing interface to your customers. In simulation mode,
all interaction with a gateway is simulated. No matter which live
gateway you end up using, the API responses will be the same
whether in development with simulation mode or in production with a
live gateway. Go
ahead and get started!
- Apply for a Merchant Account. Whether you are based in the
United States, Europe, Australia or pretty much anywhere, we can
help with a merchant account.
How to Get A Merchant Account
- Setup your gateway. The preferred gateway is our own CheddarGateway. The CheddarGateway is more capable than just about anything else out there and it's included with the CheddarGetter -- no additional fees. You can even accept payment from your customers in multiple currencies. Choose the CheddarGateway and we'll facilitate setup and support your gateway account from end to end!
