Not granted access yet
If your email address hasn’t been granted access, you won’t be able to create an account or sign in. (You’ll receive an error indicating that the email address isn’t recognized.) You’ll need to reach out to your Affirm contact or to your company's admin for access.
If you try to sign in with Google and your email address has not been granted access, you will see the following error. Please contact your administrator or email email@example.com to get access.
If you're using Google at work (Gmail for work email), and you have several aliases (e.g., 'firstname.lastname@example.org' instead of 'email@example.com'), then you may not be able to access the Affirm Merchant Dashboard using one of those aliases. Rather, you should use your main email address ('firstname.lastname@example.org) to log in, and make sure that the main email address has also been granted access to the dashboard.
Sandbox vs. Live
Affirm offers merchants a Sandbox environment where development against the Affirm API can be accomplished without creating real loans and referencing Affirm's Live servers. If you are currently creating charges in the Sandbox environment and are wanting to view those Sandbox charges, you will need to access the Sandbox Merchant Dashboard:
If you are having trouble logging into the dashboard after you have been granted access, it may be because the merchant account has not yet gone live and is still in the integration phase. You can verify this by logging into https://sandbox.affirm.com/dashboard. If you can login here, but not affirm.com/dashboard also called the production environment, then your account is not yet live. You can contact email@example.com for more information.
The production environment does not get enabled until your account is ready to go live with Affirm.If you are using the sandbox environment and it is connected to the live site for testing, please ensure that orders do not get processed in the site’s online order management system.
