TSYS ELAPP Boarding Integration Guide
IRIS CRM is certified to board merchants through the ELAPP API. Each ISO of TSYS needs to be certified to submit accounts through IRIS CRM. IRIS CRM handles the entire certification process after receiving access to the test environment from TSYS.
IRIS CRM is proud to announce that ISOs are now able to board new merchants through TurboApp to TSYS ELAPP.
The boarding set up of IRIS CRM's TurboApp happens relatively quickly after our team is provided with ELAPP API credentials.
Below are the simple steps involved in enabling the boarding integration between TurboApp and the TSYS ELAPP API as soon as possible:
- Contact your TSYS RM to coordinate a call with TSYS to enable the TSYS ELAPP API for your ISO.
- TSYS creates the design which includes terminals and features used by your ISO and runs through SE QA.
- TSYS sends the most common criteria of applications to be submitted by IRIS CRM to TSYS resembling your ISO's most frequent merchant submissions.
- Design approval – Once approved by IRIS CRM and TSYS, the project case is moved into the Development phase with the TSYS Dev Services team and IRIS CRM technical contacts are provided access into the test environment.
- IRIS CRM will submit the test submissions based on the design provided by TSYS.
- TSYS reviews the submissions and provides feedback. Based on the review, the ISO is approved to submit live applications through IRIS CRM.
- IRIS CRM schedules a new merchant boarding training with your ISO and together at least one real merchant application is boarded and monitored through approval to ensure that everything is working properly as expected.

TSYS TransFirst Reporting Integration Guide
The TSYS TransFirst integration retrieves merchant info and transactions daily. Separately from the daily reporting feed, you may upload your monthly residuals file to IRIS. See the Residuals section at the bottom for more information.
Setting up the Datasource for Transactions and Other Daily Info
- Complete the SGS File Transfer form (download here) and submit it to your TSYS TransFirst RM.
- The process to create access takes approximately 5-7 business days.
- After receiving the credentials, go to Manage > Administration > Processors > Processor Settings
- If you already have a processor added for TransFirst, click the Edit Processor (pencil).
- To add a processor for TransFirst, click Add New Processor, or Edit Processor if it's already there.
- Enter a Name.
- In the Datasource drop-down, select New Datasource.
- For Type, choose TransFirst.
- Enter a Name for the datasource.

Enabling the Scheduled Tasks
- Go to Manage > Administration > Site Options > Scheduled Tasks

The following information will be retrieved:
- Account Status: Monthly merchant info* and rates updates.

Configure the Merchant Tabs
- Go to Manage > Administration > Processors > Processor Tabs
- Select TransFirst from the Available Processor list.
- Set the visibility for the Memos and Statements tabs to No.
Configure the Merchant Account Info Section
- Go to Manage > Administration > Processors > Account Status Tab
- Under the TransFirst tab, click Permissions for each selection and select the needed user classes.
- Click Save.
- Use the Select User Class dropdown to quickly see the sections visible to each user class highlighted in green.
