Affirm Merchant Help

Accessing the Dashboard

To access your merchant dashboard, you’ll need to create an account and then sign in to it. The merchant dashboard is available in the sandbox environment and the live environment. The sandbox environment is for development and testing. Affirm activates the live environment after testing is complete.

Create your account

Either Affirm (typically the Client Success Manager) or whoever is administering Affirm at your company, via the settings page, can grant you access to the merchant dashboard. After giving you access, you’ll receive an email invitation.
