Getting Started with First Data Merchant Solutions

At First Data Merchant Solutions, we like to keep things simple. If you are switching provider or an existing customer, you can be up and running quickly with our eCommerce payment gateway in 3 easy steps:

  1. Provide us with some basic business information
    To get started, we need to receive some information about you and your business. Please complete the ‘contact us’ form on this page to send us these details.
  2. We need a small amount of your time
    We know your time is precious. One of our experienced consultants will arrange a short telephone call with you to discuss your business and eCommerce ambitions in more detail. This professional advice ensures you receive the best eCommerce solution for your business.
  3. Let’s get you up and running
    As well as offering an eCommerce solution, First Data Merchant Solutions are also one of the few providers that offer merchant acquiring services so you can accept card payments – all under one roof. Our business consultant will discuss the benefits of this with you.

Before we can get you setup on our eCommerce solution, we will require the following information for anybody who owns 25% or more of your business

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Home number
  • Mobile number
  • Nationality
  • Full address history for 3 years

To set you up on our payment gateway we will need the following information:

  • Confirmation of whether you require a Virtual Terminal for Mail Order Telephone Order (MOTO) payments or a hosted or non-hosted payment integration for your website
  • Your chosen shopping cart partner
  • Your website URL
  • A test link or live site address
  • Details of your web developer or hosting company

Shortly after receipt of this information , we will send you a test link to our payment gateway that your web developer can integrate into your website to check compatibility with your web host and shopping cart. If successful, we will send you a live link to hyperlink into your site.

We will guide you through this process and have you up and running with a payment gateway within a matter of days.

Should you need to discuss any of the above with us, you can contact us by calling our UK customer service team on 0845 9645055.
