2. Choose your desired payment methods
Attention: this step is just a configuration for each of those payment methods. You can create a request for an acquiring contract which is sent to Wallee only, not to the acquirers. If you have existing acquiring contracts, please see step 8 on how to link them to your account. We do not only offer configuration for credit card acceptance but also for local payment methods as well as invoices (ISR invoices).
3. Reconciliation / Accounting
The Reconciliation/Accounting feature can be activated but requires to upgrade from the TERMINAL ONLY plan to the BASIC plan. This feature is not free of charge (see our pricing page for more details).
You can choose to activate this later on under Space/Features.
This feature will make sure that we keep record of your sales in a subledger. Meaning we are going to import the payout files of the acquirer and match them with your transaction data. You can use this to reconcile the payments you received on your bank account. More Information can be found in the Help Center.

8. Create a new Credit Card Acquiring Contract
In order to accept cards on your terminal(s), you need to have an active payment acceptance contract.
This can be requested under Account/Payment Contracts.

If you need an acquiring contract with Concardis for VISA, Mastercard, Maestro and VPay, please register your organization under Account/Organization. Please fill all the mandatory fields according to your commercial registry.
If you are an agency doing this for your customer (merchant), please ask the UBO (Ultimate Beneficial Owner) to verify their person when required. Once the person or persons have registered all their details in the organization section, the data will be verified. This will take a few days.
The merchant contracts for those payment methods will be sent to you for review and signing. Please return the contracts duly signed according to the commercial register (for individual companies not registered, the business owner shall duly sign the contracts).
Additional documents and information might be needed by the acquiring partner to process your request.
