Do this first: Log into your CoinPayments account.
Once you are logged in, locate your merchant ID, go to “Account” -> “Account Settings”. From there, select “Basic Settings” in the menu that appears on the left side of the page. Once you have done so, your Merchant ID will appear directly beneath the “Basic Settings” heading. You can save it or copy it for later use.
To locate your IPN Secret Key, go to “Account” -> “Account Settings” -> “Merchant Settings”
From there, create an IPN Secret key and save it for later. Make sure to click the “Update Account” button at the bottom of the page to save your newly created IPN Secret key.
