Active merchants are merchants who have had their information (such as account approval, transactions, retrievals, chargebacks, and statements) recently updated or are included in residual reports.
If needed, you can deactivate merchants using one of several deactivation methods. Note that changing the Active status on a merchant will impact reporting throughout the site.
Merchants may be deactivated en-masse from any of the following pages:
- Merchant Management Page
- Merchant Importer Page
- Residuals Reports Page
You can also deactivate individual merchants from the Manage Merchant page.
