To apply for a Global Payments merchant account, visit the Online Application. You will need your bank account and routing number to complete the application. Upon approval, you will receive a welcome email with a 5 digit activation code.
When you accept a card payment from a customer, you’re responsible for the safety and security of their card details. You have to know that everything’s being done right as you’ll have to demonstrate compliance to several strict criteria.

Step 4 Plug in the Reader
Plug the reader into the audio jack of your smartphone or tablet.

Press down firmly on the stabilizer.
