Configuring Payments via Global Payments
To configure your Global Payments Merchant, you’ll need to obtain your credentials for Global Payments and then setup your Wise-Pay Merchant Account.
Obtaining your Global Payments credentials
Global Payments uses a Transaction API Key, Pay Field API Key and an API secret, as well as Account Credentials for each Terminal needed for payment processing. These credentials all need to be configured in Wise-Pay before you can accept payments.
It's important to note that separate Terminals need to be set up for Bank Debits and Credit Cards (i.e. One Terminal for each).
API keys and Account Credentials
To obtain your API Keys and Terminal Account Credentials:
- Complete the Global Payments Application Process
- Complete and return your documents through the Onboarding Dashboard
- Obtain the API Keys from the "Welcome to Global Payments" email from Global Payments
Configure your Wise-Pay Merchant account
Once you have obtained the required credentials, you can configure your Merchant Configuration for Global Payments. To configure your merchant account, refer to the Merchant Configuration KB.
Marking bank debit payments as paid
As Credit Card payments are processed in real-time, invoices with successful payments will be mark as paid as soon as they are processed by Global Payments.
As bank debits/ACH payments take a few days to settle, we have provided you with the control over when you want to see your bank debit payments mark as paid in your Accounting Package:
- In Configure > Merchants, go to the dropdown option Mark Bank Debit Payment as paid when:
|Submitted||Payment will be applied when submitted to Global Payments|
|Processed||Payment will be applied when it is being processed by Global Payments|
|Settled||Payment will be applied when funds are settled into your bank account|
Note: The default setting for bank debits is 'Submitted'.
- We recommend that this setting is not changed until confirmation from GPI has been provided that the underlying issue for delays in payment status updates has been resolved.
- Payments that are rejected due to failed payment instructions will have the applied payment removed once the payment status of ‘Rejected’ is returned from GPI

What is Prepayment Deposit Grouping?
By enabling this feature, Global Payments will then settle payments received from the various prepayment sources into discreet groups based on the source of the transaction ie:
- ConnectWise Sell
- iSell (eCommerce)
- ConnectWise Email Invoice Links (when an invoice has not yet been synced), and
- Virtual Terminal
Merchant Administrators will have the following ability:
- Payments settled to the bank account will be grouped by the Transaction Description set by the source of the transaction.
- Merchants will receive the funds into their bank accounts settled as total funds grouped by the reference for each payment source.
When a bank account is saved for a payer, Global Payments will validate the account by debiting a nominal amount of $0.01. In majority of cases your payers will not see this debit appear as the transaction will be voided immediately after it has been validated.
