The purpose of this article is to help you establish a connection between BridgerPay and your partnered Payment Service Provider. The first step involves locating the credentials outlined below in the PSP’s portal. Next, you simply need to enter these credentials in their respective fields found in the PSP’s configuration tab within the BridgerPay dashboard. Once this process is complete, a connection will be established in order to start processing transactions.

What Credentials you need:

Api Key

Secret Key

Merchant Category Code

Payment Method Code

Merchant Display Name: Your Entity name


Back Office Login URL:

Steps to find your credentials:

1. Login to your AstroPay back office

2. From the left hand side Menu, select Credentials

3. For API key and Secret key, click on API key and click on Generate New API Key

5. For Merchant Category Code, click on Merchant Settings and use the number found in the corresponding field

6. For Payment Method code, Go to Payment Methods and copy the code to show specific Payment method option. Leave blank to show all available options

Note: Per AstroPay's policies, no more than two merchant user IDs can be linked to a single AstroPay user ID. The best way ensure that AstroPay users are not linked to multiple merchant user IDs is to assign a value to the "personal_id" in your initial request which will be unique for each user. This value will then be used as the "merchant_user_id" sent to AstroPay.

If you need more payment providers for your business, use our connections search engine to find and contact them.
