Merchant Onboarding API

The Merchant Onboarding API offers Payment Service Providers and E-commerce Platforms the ability to provision Riverty systems, so Riverty Payment Methods become available for their merchants. Use of the API requires configuration by Riverty and access keys. For more information on this, contact your Riverty Account manager.

Process

The onboarding process is the same for both creating a new Merchant / Shop as well as adding a shop. It works a-synchronously in two steps:

Step 1:

The Partner sends in Merchant, Shop, Contract and Product details. The onboarding API will validate the request and start the onboarding process. If the validation fails, feedback will be given.

Step 2:

The test API keys will become available via the get credentials endpoint. With the keys the merchant can start testing. If the Partner has a M-Level contract, the production keys will also be available in the same timeframe.

Depending on the type of connection, the response time is as follows:

Test keys Live keys
M-Level PSP contract Within 5 minutes Within 5 minutes
Other type of contract Within 5 minutes Within 3 working days*
