Getting Started

To get started, you will first need an TransFirst account. If you don't have one, you can go to http://www.transfirst.com/online-processing/payment-gateway to sign up. After this is done, follow the steps below.


Obtain API Credentials

To process a payment thru TransFirst, you must obtain your API credentials. You'll need the following info:

  • Merchant ID
  • RegKey

To obtain your API credentials take the following steps:

  1. Check your inbox for email from Transfirst
    Note: Check your spam folder for anything from @transfirst.com
  2. Your MerchantID (TC ID) is below 'Your Account Information' and will be numbers, for example 54442
  3. Your RegKey Value will need to be obtained by contacting the merchant support team at (800) 654-9256. Tell them you are setting up your SmithCart account and they will send the request to integrations.

    The integrations team will then call you and run a quick test transaction and issue your RegKey. SmithCart always works so this process happens very quickly.

    The RegKey will be alpha-numeric, for example S6GMBE8TJPH9EYPG
  4. Make a note of these as you will need to enter this information under the Gateway setup.
