What is a merchant ID
A merchant ID is a unique 15-digit number crucial for businesses to accept card and digital payments, functioning as an identifier for payment processing. It connects a merchant's payment system to their bank account, ensuring accurate fund transfer. Businesses obtain it by setting up a merchant account with an acquiring bank facilitated by merchant service providers. This ID is vital for transaction processing, linking point-of-sale systems to merchant accounts, and enabling the flow of funds from customer payments to the business's bank account. It's essential for companies looking to accept digital payments and manage their payment infrastructure effectively.
