To set up BBMS and BBPS accounts (24 hours a day, 7 days a week) visit https://bbmsmerchant.blackbaud.com and continue through the prompts that follow. To gather the information prior to starting the prompts please complete the Quick Start Checklist. If a BBPS account has not yet been created, it will be part of the BBMS provisioning process. For security reasons, only the Organization Admins can setup BBMS and BBPS accounts. Please see I need to become an Organization Administrator for steps to give access to the appropriate user.

Tip: When creating your BBMS/BBPS accounts consider using a username pertinent to the organization such as OrgNameMS or OrgNamePS respectively. It is recommended not to use personal information to create the organization's username for BBMS/BBPS example: JohnSmith. The initial username will not be able to be changed. 

​After the Blackbaud Merchant Services account has been created, it needs to be added to the software being used to process transactions. Please see the Getting Started Guide for a walk-through of each software.
