You must send an email address with all of your transactions. You can send an email address by creating a payment method with one or sending one directly in the transaction request body itself.
In Brazil and Argentina there is support for purchase, authorize, capture, void, refund and verify. In Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru and Uruguay only purchase and refund are supported.
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.
