In the Ping Payments™ API, a Merchant represents an organization selling goods or services through a Tenant.

Each tenant has their own list of merchants. Note that multiple tenants can have the same person or organization in their list of merchants, but that there is no connection between merchant entries in lists belonging to different tenants.

Each merchant has their own merchant ID.

Merchant ID

Every Merchant is identified by a merchant ID.

This ID is part of the response from the Ping Payments API upon creation of a new merchant. Every payment should have a valid merchant ID.
