NMI Setup

Step 1: Configure your BlueSnap account settings

Complete these steps in your Merchant Portal for production or sandbox.

  1. Get your BlueSnap API credentials and define the authorized IP addresses for your server.

  2. Set up your statement descriptor. The statement descriptor is the description that appears on the shopper's credit card statement or bank statement for each transaction and helps the shopper identify the transaction.

    • Go to Settings > General Settings.
    • In the Branding Settings section, enter a Default Statement (Soft) Descriptor and Support Phone Number (both appear on the shopper's statement).
    • Click Submit.
  3. To get paid, you need to configure your payout settings. Refer to Payout for more information.

Step 2: Configure your NMI settings

If you don’t already have an NMI account, please work with your BlueSnap Implementation Specialist to set one up.

Note: Kount must be enabled through NMI.

Best Practices & Tips

Considering shopper impact of currency conversions

While transactions are placed in your store’s base currency, you might have your store configured to display product prices in multiple currencies. To account for any differences between the currency conversion rates used to display prices on your website and the rates used by the shopper’s issuing bank, we recommend including a note on your checkout page that informs shoppers of potential price variations. For example: “The price listed is approximate and may vary slightly”.


Use BlueSnap's reporting capabilities to gain a comprehensive understanding of your business through detailed transaction and payout reports, payment conversion reports, and much more. Reports can be viewed right in your Merchant Portal or pulled via the Reporting API to be parsed or pushed to your third-party reporting tools.
