Developer integrates into the MercuryActivate API and either creates a portal/website or embeds the API within the POS application in order to capture the necessary information to enroll a merchant in Mercury payment processing. Mercury will use the information collected from the merchant to automatically process their enrollment. This simple application takes less than 60 seconds to complete; the developer can capture a lead almost instantly. With MercuryActivate, developers can quickly, accurately, and simply capture merchant enrollment information.

The API is embedded into their POS application or any public website. The developer can also empower dealers to enroll leads themselves, reducing the time it takes to respond to a merchant lead. This helps streamline the entire merchant boarding process by reducing the number of human and system touch points.
