Each merchant is associated with a merchant processing account (most schools have one, but if you need additional accounts, please contact your client service representative). K-12 Online will assist in entering a payment gateway and integrating it into the merchant account. Each Merchant can be associated with one webstore. Only one merchant can be associated with tuition.
In the Merchant Manager, you will be able to:
- Add new merchants and edit existing merchants
- Change the status of the merchant (suggested when you want to "close" the Webstore)
- Delete merchants
You will also be able to access the following features:
Adding a New Merchant:
- Click on the blue box in the top left corner labeled, "Add New Merchant."
- Complete the page content for your merchant.
Merchant Name: The name of your merchant for internal purposes
Merchant Label Name: The name of the merchant that will appear in the parent portal

Changing the Status of the Merchant
If you would like to temporarily close the Webstore, the best practice would be to make the merchant "Inactive." You can do so by simply clicking the dropdown in the Status column.
