The Track Applications page of your Reseller Console allows you to monitor the progress of merchant applications that you have submitted for processing. You can search your merchant application list, view and delete individual applications and easily track all of your merchant applications as they make their way from beginning to end of the application process.
The list of merchant applications stored in the Track Applications page are grouped together by status (i.e. Pending, Approved, etc.) and within those groupings, they can be sorted by Company (default), Contact, Credit Card Processing Platform, or the date on which the application was last updated. Click the column header to reorder the list. The total number of applications currently in the system is displayed to the top right of the column headers.
If your account is enabled for multiple resellers, the bar at the top of the merchant application list will alert you to which reseller accounts are being reported on in the merchant application tracking system.
To change which resellers are included in this section, click on the bar and you will be able to move resellers from a list of "available resellers" to "selected resellers" and vice versa.
Simply click on the reseller that you would like to add or remove from the track applications list and click on the corresponding button. When you have selected the desired resellers to include in the "selected resellers" list, simply click the save button to preserve your changes and return to the list of applications. If you do not wish to save your changes, click Cancel and your changes will be discarded and you will be returned to the list of merchant applications.

You can choose to create one or more API keys for the new merchant you add.
Each source used by a merchant (such as their point of sale system, online shopping cart, mobile device, etc.) is assigned a unique "Key" by the gateway. This key is used to identify the source of each transaction when it is processed through the gateway. Each source and its corresponding key is stored in the Sources and Keys section of the Merchant Console.
You may enter the name of a source here, or you may choose to wait until the merchant application has been processed.
Each source key can have an assigned PIN, but a PIN should only be assigned to the source key if you are sure that the merchant's software can support a PIN. If you are not sure, please leave the PIN space blank.
If you choose to include a source in the new merchant application so that a key can be generated, please include an email address in the "Email Key To" space. Once the key has been generated by the gateway, the merchant will receive important information about the key via this email address.
|Source Key (optional)|
|Key Name||The name of the source to which the key will belong (i.e. POS, eCart, Mobile Device, etc.)|
|PIN||PIN (Personal Identification Number) assigned to the key (optional) only enter if you are sure a PIN will be supported by the merchant's software|
- Email- Email the api key to an email address. This option will require you to enter an email to send the API key info to.

You can also adjust the advances settings for the api key.

Available commands: Sale, Auth Only, Check Sale, Cash Sale, Credit, Post Auth, Check Credit, Cash Credit, Void, and Capture.
- Duplicate Transaction Handling - This setting allows you to prevent fraud by catching similar or identical transactions occurring within a set period of time. Please Note: This option is not compatible with check transactions and should not be used in conjunction with the Duplicate Detection fraud module.
- This feature folds transactions when two or more transactions:
- 1) happen within the specified Time Limit AND
- 2) the specified criteria matches.
- In the event a duplicate transaction is detected, the system will fold in the second transaction and the customer will be shown the first authorization again. To enable this feature enter a number of minutes in the "Time Limit" field and select one of the following options in the drop down menu:
- None: Selecting this option leaves this feature DISABLED. This is the default setting.
- Fold if ALL data matches: Transactions processed within the time limit where all transaction data matches will be folded. Duplicate transactions must be processed on this payment form to be folded.
- Fold if card #, amount, order ID, and source match: Transactions processed within the time limit with the same card number, amount, and order ID will be folded. Duplicate transactions must processed on this payment form to be folded.
- Fold if card # and amount match: Transactions processed within the time limit with the same card number and amount will be folded. When this option is enabled, the gateway looks at ALL previous transactions on the account (not just those processed on this form), when determining if a transaction is a duplicate.

- Ignore expiration and capture original auth - Checks "Expire Auth After" in settings. If authorization has expired, it will force a capture of the original authorization. Please Note: Maximum "Expire Auth After" setting is 30 days. We would not recommend capturing transactions over 60 days due to the charge back risk.

- Re-authorize transaction - Checks "Expire Auth After" in settings. If the authorization has expired, it will attempt to reauthorize the same card.
