The Document Request page allows Facilitator-level users to request additional information from boarding Merchants for risk mitigation and instances where supporting documents submitted with the Merchant Signup Form initially are either invalid, not accepted, or unreadable.
Navigate to Document Request by clicking DOCUMENT REQUEST under Management in the left-hand navigation panel.

Copy Form Upload URL
With each Document Request listing on-page, there is a field titled Form URL. This field shows a COPY hyperlink with a clipboard icon. Clicking COPY will automatically copy the form URL to your clipboard and allow you to view the form from the Merchant’s perspective. You can also use this to re-send the form directly to a merchant through another communication method if needed.
Approve or Cancel Document Request
The column titled Decisions on the Document Request page features a green “Approve”
CHECKMARK button and a red “Cancel” X button.
These buttons allow the user to either approve submitted documents from the request as one of the following:
Approved - Sufficient documentation submitted and approved for a proper boarding review.
Canceled ❌ - Invalid / Insufficient documentation or general boarding request cancellation.
Edit Existing Forms
In scenarios where a mistake was made on the Document Request form, you can easily edit any of the parameters by clicking the EDIT button next to the Document Request form you’d like to change.
