Merchant onboarding

Onboarding alternatives

Jupiter offers you two different methods to onboard merchants to their applications. You can select from one online flavor that is ready to be used, as well as a programmed approach to integrate with your own registration flow.

Online onboarding

In order to simplify the onboarding process, Jupiter offers a pre-built, frictionless, conversion-optimized user interface, that is optimized for payments compliance.

You might take advantage of the online approach right away and let Jupiter handle most of the sub-merchant experience and communication.

Jupiter will onboard your accounts in a co-branded flow that’s customized with your brand and colors.

Custom-programatic onboarding experience

While developing your application, you may wish to provision the merchant account via your own onboarding experience. Using this approach, you would need to include all forms necessary to collect information from merchants-applicants, such as identity verification, SMS and bank account information. Upon completion of your own process, the provisioning API can be used to submit the merchant application.

Merchant types

Jupiter supports three distinct types of merchants.

  • Individuals
  • Businesses
  • Government and public corporations

Merchant activation - Underwriting process

When a sub-merchant application has been submitted successfully via either online onboarding or provisioning API, Jupiter underwriting begins with the intent to complete the process within a few hours. Once approved, a webhook is executed letting your application know about the event.


Jupiter webhooks will send a JSON POST to your application every time a submerchant application is submitted, a merchant account status changes, or an event occurs.
