Creating a Merchant at Yourpay is easy. Here is a guide to get you started.

I’ve included a code example here.

TIP You can open the file with notepad, if you do not have an editor for viewing source code.

In the code example we are posting a number of variables to our API function “create_merchant”. These variables are as follows:
