In order to connect your Brand to your Checkout account for processing eCommerce payments (from Mobile, Web and select External Channels), your Checkout account needs to be configured, and for this purpose your Success Manager will require you to provide your credentials.. This article will take you through the steps of performing the setup and locating the credentials needed.
The following credentials need to be provided to your Success Manager:
Merchant Account ID (per Venue or Company / Franchisee, depending on setup)
By default, Checkout stores card tokens (cards that your users save into their accounts on Mobile and Web app) per Merchant Account. If you plan to use multiple Merchant Accounts for your Brand (in order to wire funds to different bank accounts based on the Venue where a transaction is made), you need to reach out to the Checkout Support and ask them how to configure your account so that card tokens are stored at a Company-level, rather than per Merchant Account.

To send the credentials (Secret Key and Public Key) to your MENU Success Manager in a safe way, there are several alternatives:
Paste them in a text-file, create a compressed zip-file with a strong password. Send the zip file and the password on two separate channels (e.g. Email and Slack)
Provide the text-file from a secured file sharing site and share the access URL and password over a secure channel.
