Don't already have a merchant account? Please read.
Groupon Goods Marketplace is in the process of migrating all merchant operations to an exciting new platform called Gateway. The Gateway platform has not yet opened for new merchant registration, and its official launch date is currently TBD.
The account setup instructions below were designed to assist our invitation-only Early Access merchants. If you haven't already had a Gateway account created for you, please check back in the coming months as more news on our timeline for open enrollment becomes available.
1. Activate your new Gateway account
You should have received an email with the subject line “Groupon Goods Gateway - Invitation to Join”.
This e-mail contains a link to activate your new merchant account. This link expires after 24 hours. If you have not already, please open that link now before returning to this support article.
