  • Your MercadoPago credentials are tied to a specific country and currency. You must send the country associated with a particular access_token when creating a new MercadoPago gateway.

  • With the exception to Mexico, MercadoPago requires sending the payer identification with each payment. You can send those two values via the cardholder_identification_type and cardholder_identification_number gateway specific fields.
