Multi-Factor Authentication FAQs

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of protection against cyberthreats like phishing attacks and account takeovers. It verifies your identity with two different “factors” of authentication when you log in.
The authentication methods we use for Elavon Payment Gateway are:
1. Your Elavon Payment Gateway password
2. A one-time verification code sent to your registered email or mobile phone
With MFA, even if someone guesses your password, they won’t be able to log in as you without also providing the code. It’s extra account security for an extra layer of protection.
We use MFA to help protect your account. You may already be familiar with MFA. It’s a common way for companies to implement strong identity verification and to comply with regulatory standards for data security and protection.
We’ll automatically enable MFA for your account starting on the 10th of June. After this date, MFA will be part of the usual login flow. After entering your client ID, username, and password, you’ll be redirected to a verification screen. After you select a method, we’ll send you a code via email or text (SMS). You’ll then be prompted to enter the code to log in.
Once you have authenticated yourself, you will not be required to authenticate again for 24 hours unless you use a new device or browser.
When you log in, select one of these MFA methods:
  • Your verified email, which was used during the Elavon Payment Gateway registration process
  • A text message (SMS) to your registered mobile phone
Once we’ve enabled MFA, you’ll need to enter the one-time code you receive:
  • When you log in
  • When you log in from a new device or new web browser
No. MFA applies only when logging in. Certain areas of the application are already password protected today, and this will remain in place.
First, try again by clicking the Resend button on the login verification screen. If that doesn’t work, select another authentication method. If you still haven’t received it, contact your Elavon Payment Gateway Administrator or User Manager.
Contact your Elavon Payment Gateway Administrator or User Manager to change the email on your account.
Contact your Elavon Payment Gateway Administrator or User Manager to change the mobile phone number on your account.
No problem. Just select the registered email on your account to receive one-time codes.
First, check that you’ve entered the correct client ID, username, and password, as well as the one-time code within 5 minutes of receiving the email or text (SMS). If you’re still experiencing login issues, please contact the Ecommerce Support Team at
