If you already have a Laybuy account, you will need to open a separate browser tab and log into your LayBuy Merchant account. If you have not opened a Laybuy account, you can do this by clicking the button illustrated in step 7 of this Guide.  Scroll down to step 4 to begin.

[tips]If you have not yet opened a LayBuy Merchant account, simply click the Sign Up button in the image above. You'll need to follow the steps on screen to open a Laybuy Merchant account to enable you to access the Merchant ID and API Key required to configure this Payment Gateway. [/tips] 

[remember]Laybuy is a third party Payment Gateway, which means you are using a company external to EKM in order to process payments on your EKM online shop. With this in mind, EKM cannot control how the third party processes payments or influence their policies and procedures.

Whilst there are rarely issues with third-party payment gateways, on occasion, it is necessary to contact them directly to resolve any issues as our Customer Support Team is only able to investigate up to the point where the customer is transferred away from your EKM online shop to process their payment before they are redirected back again to complete the order.[/remember]
