BluePay works closely with developers to integrate our advanced payment processing technology with companies’ backend processes for a more efficient, streamlined business solution.
Log into the Bluepay 2.0 Gateway Manager. From the Administration menu choose Accounts, then List. On the Account List, under Options on the right-hand side, choose the first icon to view the account. It looks like a pair of eyes. On the Account Admin page, you will find the ACCOUNT ID is the second item in the right-hand column and the SECRET KEY is about halfway down the page, near a large red warning.
The TAMPER_PROOF_SEAL is an MD5 checksum (encryption) of your SECRET KEY, ACCOUNT ID and a few other transaction parameters. We use the encryption simply to avoid sending the secret key over the wire. Please see the BluePay Interface documentation for more information.
A Security Error will occur when the Tamper Proof Seal is miscalculated. Make sure you are using the Gateway Account ID and secret key, not the Merchant ID.

If an ACH is processed before 2PM CST, it will be seen in the destination account the next day. The bank may take up to 5 days to issue a reject for various reasons. At that time, BluePay will retract that ACH deposit.
BluePay does not issue SSL certificates. The merchant would need to contact a certificate authority to get a SSL certificate. Some of the larger companies issuing SSL certificates are GoDaddy, Thawte, Comodo and Verisign. GoDaddy is usually the cheapest.
