Set up GoDaddy Payments

Step 1 of the GoDaddy Payments get started series

GoDaddy Payments connects seamlessly into your existing GoDaddy product. Use GoDaddy Payments to securely process credit cards, manage your payments, issue refunds, and get access to your funds faster. There are no setup fees or a contract when you sign up for GoDaddy Payments.

Most GoDaddy accounts come with GoDaddy Payments enabled, so you can quickly begin accepting payments through Online Pay Links, Virtual Terminal or your online store. To have your funds directly deposited into your bank account, simply provide your business and bank account info to complete the setup process.

Note: We recommend completing the one-time setup process before you fulfill any orders. If we’re unable to verify your business info, money could be refunded back to your customers — so it’s a good idea to take care of that first.

If you’re using GoDaddy Payments to process transactions through your online store, you can also set up GoDaddy Payments directly through your Managed WordPress Ecommerce or your Websites + Marketing stores.

  1. Go to the Dashboard. You might be prompted to sign in (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select Setup GoDaddy Payments or Set up Payouts to begin the verification process.
  3. Note: If you’ve already started processing transactions with GoDaddy Payments, you’ll find the Set up Payouts link in a banner at the top of the Dashboard.
  4. Follow the prompts to set up GoDaddy Payments. You'll need the following information:
    • Business Owner: Contact information and your SIN (Social Insurance Number).
    • Business Profile: Address. You may be asked to enter a BN (Business Number) if your business generates more than $30,000 in sales annually, or an EIN (Employer Identification Number) if you conduct business with the United States.
  5. When you’ve finished filling out the fields, select Confirm.
  6. If additional verification is required, you’ll receive instructions to verify your identity by submitting either a text confirmation or government ID. Follow the instructions to submit the additional verification.
  7. Note: Was your GoDaddy Payments application declined? Learn more about why this can happen and next steps.
  8. Once verification is complete, you can receive payouts and associate your account to your Managed WordPress Ecommerce or Websites + Marketing stores whenever you’d like to. Next, link a bank account where you want to receive your payouts.
