Getting Started

This page describes how you can get started as a merchant

Merchants can use Coins as a payment processor by using our [Merchant APIs](doc:accepting-payment-merchant-guide). By doing so, customers from anywhere in the world would be able to pay the merchant using funds from their Coins wallets or from any other blockchain enabled wallet. ## Setting up your merchant account 1. Sign up for a Coins account at <http://coins.ph/signup> 2. Complete your [identity verification](https://coins.ph/limits). 3. Email <mailto:help@coins.ph> to request activation of your account as a merchant. 4. Once approved, you may obtain your merchant api token from [the API dashboard](https://coins.ph/app/settings/account) 5. Setup your `redirect_url` and `callback_url`. Redirect_url is where the user will be redirected once they have completed their payment, callback_url is where you will receive notifications when an invoice is paid.
