Things to Note
- Our Elavon connection is through Elavon Converge, not Elavon Fusebox. If you are attempting to connect through Elavon Fusebox, you will need to contact Elavon support and request to switch to their Converge/VirtualMerchant software.
- Contact your Elavon sales or technical support representative and ensure that your account is enabled for “eCommerce” and not just “Phone/Catalog”.
- If you want to enable IP Address Options, please add the following IPs to your account: 146.088.098.245 and 146.088.098.236. If the connection is still not working, we recommend disabling the "IP Address Filter" feature in Elavon.
- Make sure your Payment Gateway is set to LIVE mode.
- If it is, contact Elavon support to verify if your account is set up properly
Make sure the user ID being used for Payment Processing has all the rights configured in Elavon. Follow the instructions here to find your users and then click on Rights to configure it accordingly.
