Affirm Merchant Help

Accessing the Dashboard

Before you can view your account on the merchant dashboard, Affirm must grant you access to the dashboard. To get started, the admin on your account can send a request to with the names and email addresses of the users that need access. If you do not know who the admin is our merchant help team can tell you who is the designated contact on your account. An Affirm team member will notify you when the request has been approved, generally within 1 business day.

You need a Google account!

Please note that even if an email address is approved it must be linked to a Google account. Affirm uses security technology supported by Goolge to provide secure access to the merchant dashboard. If your email address is not already a gmail or Google Apps work domain address, simply link your account to a Google account by going to
