CardPointe allows merchants to register for use through the Automated Merchant Account Registration directly though the login screen.
Once a merchant is provided CardConnect Merchant ID; a merchant will navigate to the CardPointe webpage at https://cardconnect.com/cardpointe and select the SIGN UP link.
The first screen a merchant will encounter will be the Validate Account screen and will ask to enter their uniquely assigned Merchant ID, Tax ID number, and Zip code and select the Submit to Confirm button.
The merchant will then be taken to the Account Registration screen to associate an administrator user with their merchant specific CardPointe instance. Once all information has been entered, a merchant must select the Submit button.
A merchant will then be taken to a confirmation screen providing details to check the email that was associated with the CardPointe instance.
The email received once a merchant has entered all the necessary information through the automated setup process, will provide a link to Complete Registration. This link will expire after a two-week period, and if a merchant does not complete a registration prior to this expiration period, a merchant must contact CardConnect directly to manually re-send the registration email.
Once a merchant navigates to the registration link provided, CardPointe will require the merchant to create a password to log into the CardPointe system. Once a password has been entered, meets all required criteria, and the Submit button is selected; the CardPointe registration process has been completed and a merchant is now able to log in to the CardPointe system using the email address associated in addition to the password created.
