What Integration Data do I enter for Mercury?
Checking the Integrated credit card processing checkbox is only the first step of being able to accept credit card payments through Lavu POS. It is vital that you enter the correct Integration Data in the correct text field.
The Integration Data is provided by Mercury when you create an account with them. The merchant number and password are sent in an email to the customer and allow for credit card processing through your card readers. The merchant number and web services password will be the same credentials that you use to log into Mercury VirtualTerminal. The hosted checkout terminal ID and hosted checkout password are required for you to manually enter credit cards for processing.

No other Integration Data is required.
