Occasionally your terminal provider, payment network, or bank might ask you for either your Terminal ID or Merchant ID / TSP number. For example, you might need one of these ID numbers if you decide to accept certain credit cards on your terminal, or when calling your terminal provider, bank or payment network to help them identify your terminal or account.
What is a terminal ID or merchant ID?
Every EFTPOS terminal in New Zealand has an individual ID number. This helps your terminal provider, bank and payment network identify the terminal. Certain information like which network the terminal is connected to and what software version is currently loaded on the terminal is stored against these numbers.
How do I find these numbers?
You can find your Terminal ID or Merchant ID / TSP number on all of your transaction and settlement receipts. If your terminal is connected to the Verifone network, your Terminal ID will show on the receipt as ‘TSP’. Your Merchant ID will show on the receipt as ‘MID’.
If your terminal is connected to the Paymark network only the Terminal ID is shown and you can find it next to ‘Terminal’.
