Merchant Accounts: Accounts

The Accounts section is where new merchant accounts can be set up, and existing merchant accounts can be viewed and configured.

Merchant Account View

On the right are a couple of charts for information purposes, indicating the revenue attributed to the merchant account, and the account's current chargeback ratio.
