Verify Merchant Credentials



I have a situation where the merchant enters his credentials, so that the website processes the payment. I would like to know how to validate merchant credentials so that when wrong credentials are provided an error can be displayed.


Is this possible?


Thank You,

Re: Verify Merchant Credentials

You're running a cart system and are setting up the control panel for it? Any transaction you run should give back error 13 if the login ID or transaction key are invalid, so just try processing a dummy transaction and see if you get error 13. Test mode should theoretically work for this, pass a field x_test_request with value TRUE to make it process in test mode even if the account is in live mode.
