User Access and Password Resets

Password Resets

If you cannot remember your password, you can request a password reset by clicking the “Forgot Password?” option next to the password box. Alternatively, if you are the registered owner of the account, you can e-mail Cardstream Support and request a password reset. The Support team will activate the request and have the reset link automatically e-mailed to you.

If you have entered your password incorrectly 4 or more times your account will be locked, you will either need to wait for 30 minutes.Or you can send an email to Cardstream Support from the registered e-mail address that you use to log in with; requesting your account to be unlocked.

Additional User Set-ups

Merchants can have additional users if required, there is no limit imposed on the number of additional users. If a Merchant needs additional users to be set-up the process is easy. The Merchant should send an e-mail to the Support team containing the users:

  • Full Name
  • E-mail Address
  • Required User Group (defaulted to ‘Administrator’ if not supplied)

A full list of available User Groups can be found below.
