Activate Payments service

Activating the Payments service is essential if you want to accept real credit and debit cards as payment for your goods or services. By enabling the Payments service, your account gains the ability to securely capture and process customer payment information.

This means that when a customer makes a purchase, their credit or debit card details are transmitted through our secure servers and verified by the issuing bank. Once the payment is authorized, the funds are transferred to your account, allowing you to complete the transaction.

Here’s what activating the Payments service enables:

  • Accept payments from customers using major credit and debit cards. This allows you to offer a wider range of payment options and potentially increase your sales.
  • Process payments securely. Our platform uses industry-standard security protocols to protect your customers’ financial information.
  • Manage your transactions easily. You’ll be able to view transaction history, track payments, and manage refunds directly within your account.


We cannot guarantee that your merchant account will be approved to use 4Geeks Payments.

There are a number of factors that we consider when reviewing merchant accounts, including the merchant’s business history, the type of products or services that they sell, and the merchant’s credit history. We also consider the merchant’s location and the payment methods that they wish to accept.

We do our best to approve merchant accounts that meet our requirements, but we cannot guarantee that your account will be approved at this time.

To successfully activate the Payments feature, it must be supported by a legal figure according to your country, which indicates to us that such trade has permissions from your country to do business.

Once activated, there may be associated fees for processing payments. You can find our current fee structure in our Terms of Service.

We currently support any of the following legal figures:

  • company / legal entity
  • individual / natural person
  • non-profit entity
  • government entity (U.S. only)
