Applying for Merchant’s Passport and registering website at catalogue

To start accepting WebMoney and other payment instruments provided by the System as a payment option at your website, you need to register at Megastock Catalogue. If you work with Russian-speaking customers, it is as well highly recommended to register at its Russian version. If your site qualifies for being added into the Catalogue after appropriate checks, and verification, you will be added into the catalogue and obtain a Merchant status – so called "Merchant Passport". Starting from this moment you get access to all Merchant Interfaces and enable purses fro obtaining funds from test to live mode. Verified Merchant Status (that allows to receive payments in automated mode) can be received by any individual (physical person/private entrepreneur) or company (legal entity). Their status, activities and web sites must meet the requirements listed below. Information about companies, working via Processing service is added to the catalogue by us as soon as all Agreements are signed. The Customer sees that such WMID belongs to the System, acting on behalf of this Merchant, but the products/services and their provider are visible too.

For those websites having purely local, narrow or niche orientation there is an invisible (non-public) publication. You have to explain why you believe your site is non-public and provide clear, evident reasons to do so. Decision is taken by a moderator individually in each case. You might be as well asked to provide the requested data.

Registration at the catalogue is an obligatory step for receiving access to automated interfaces and Merchant’s. Refusal to be published or illegibility due to the scope of activities you provide leads to
