Set-up Your Credentials

Once you’ve registered for your Beanstream account, you will receive a merchant ID number from Beanstream. You will need this merchant ID number in order to integrate your Beanstream account with your Rezgo account.  In order to activate your Beanstream gateway, you will need the following credentials:

  • merchant ID
  • username
  • password

The username and password that you use to connect to your Beanstream account are the credentials you set up in your Beanstream order settings.  To set-up your connection credentials, navigate to administration > account settings > order settings.  Look for the following section on the order settings page and create your username and password.  DO NOT USE SPECIAL CHARACTERS IN THESE FIELDS.

If you try to use your regular administration username and password, you will lock yourself out of your account after 3 failed attempts.  If you receive the following error:


"Beanstream responded: Authorization Failed %2D Access lockout contact support"

Wait 15 minutes and then try to connect using the correct credentials.

IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING HASH VALIDATION
Please note that you must make sure that you disable HASH settings in your Beanstream account.

Required Settings

By default, Beanstream requires full address information to be submitted for every transaction, including billing phone number. Address verification will often cause problems during the payment process because of incorrect formatting of address information.  To avoid issues with AVS, contact Beanstream and request that AVS be turned off for your account.
