Shop name: This is what the users see as the name of
the shop when they pay. You cannot use the name of an existing shop. After
entering it you can save your application and continue to fill in the
application form. This automatically generates a secret identifier (POSKey)

Shop URL: You should give an URL address where we can
check your site (later you can change it to the final URL in the same form).
The website must have a https certificate regarded as secure by the commonly
used browsers. If you do not wish to use Barion on your website, then
provide the url of the application you use, e.g. the url of the billing
software. If you wished to use Barion in a mobile application, please give
us the link from where we can download that application.

200 characters long) of the products/services available at the shop. This is
necessary for the approval of your shop, the customers will not see it.

own logo. Do not use a (stock) image downloaded from the internet, because
others can do the same and you cannot have the same logo.

activity or the products sold. You can use several categories as well.
Contacts: Here you should give your contact persons
whom we can contact in case of business, technical or customer care issues.

To create the shop, you need an approval and must meet the following
conditions. These requirements are necessary to inform customers and meet the
requirements of the card companies and must by all means be met. Please only
send your application for approval if the services or products sold by you
on your website are not classified as risky or prohibited activities. For merchants offering unusual retail products, we suggest requesting
pre-assessment in an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can request the approval of your shop by clicking on the “Send approval
request” button only if you filled-in all the fields of the form and the
following conditions are met. You can save the changes in the meantime. If
you use a billing software, you only need to meet the last two conditions.

· I would like to use the shop with a billing software only (e.g. InnVoice,
Billingo, Superfaktura): This option only available in Hungary, Czechia and Slovakia yet. Please
only tick this box if you really just want to use the shop for an invoicing
program (not connected to your website), which means that with one of the
available invoicing programs you would like to send invoices in email to
your buyers and they are paying to you via those invoices without visiting
any kind of website.
The Barion logo has been placed on the site of the shop: The uniform information to Barion users is in the interest of all
parties, and the displaying of the logo is one of the conditions for using
Barion. We, therefore, ask you to use the downloadable graphic elements
without modification. All the logos are available in various bitmap and
vector-graphic formats in the downloadable zip file below. The logos must be
displayed on the main page and the payment page, at the Barion method of
payment, at minimum. Download in multiple formats (PNG, WMF,AI, CDR,

mandatory legal content, including the Barion method of payment in the Terms

top-up code without separators, separated into three groups or with hyphens.
You can find your top-up code and the necessary information here in your wallet.
