Configuring your Barclaycard ePDQ settings ready for use with your Greenlight Power store

 

Prerequisites

This article is designed for people who have already signed up for their Barclaycard ePDQ Essential Plus offering and have received their credentials from Barclaycard. If you have not yet signed up for Barclaycard ePDQ Essential Plus then the following Knowledgebase article will give you more information: Take Payments Online: Introduction to Barclaycard ePDQ
 
In order to complete the following steps, you will need your live ePDQ account set-up confirmation email from Barclaycard. This should arrive a week or so after you have received your test account details.
 

Step 1: Logging in to your Barclays ePDQ Admin Console for the first time.

Your confirmation email from the Barclaycard ePDQ technical support team will contain an ePDQ PSPID (account name) and a one-time-password for the LIVE ePDQ online portal. This portal provides you with an interface within which you can process manual transactions, issue refunds, control a comprehensive list of fraud rules and run various reports.

Once you have your credentials log in to the ePDQ service here: https://payments.epdq.co.uk/ncol/prod/backoffice/

If it's the first time you've logged in then you may be prompted to change your password, you will then be presented with the following screen. Alternatively you can navigate to it by going to Configuration > Users > Select the UserID which is the same as your PSPID, then click 'Edit':
 

Please fill in the form and save the changes. The fields highlighted in grey are auto-populated by the ePDQ team and are not editable

To do this, please navigate to Configuration > Users. You will notice there is already one default Business User account that you've edited in the previous step. Please choose 'New User', then complete the form according to the following instructions:
