Additional Information

Currencies

MercadoPago uses the latest currency codes for the currency IDs. Make sure that the same currency codes are setup in your ERP system. For more information, see: https://api.mercadopago.com/currencies.

IP ranges used in communications with MercadoPago

Whenever information is sent from MercadoPago to your Web server (for example from IPN or Webhooks), this information will be sent from one of the IPs in the range listed below:

209.225.49.0 - 209.225.49.255
216.33.197.0 - 216.33.197.255
216.33.196.0 - 216.33.196.255
63.128.82.0 - 63.128.82.255
63.128.83.0 - 63.128.83.255
63.128.94.0 - 63.128.94.255

Thus, you can protect your web store using a firewall that allows incoming traffic only from the above mentioned IPs.

SSL certificate and HTTPS communication

A Sana web store must run under HTTPS. MercadoPago uses SSL to guarantee a secure communication.

Refresh your credentials

By clicking on the refresh button, you can get new pairs of credentials. When you do this, the previous ones will stop being supported by MercadoPago and you will be no longer able to authenticate, if you don't update your code with the new credentials.

Use this function only when you think your credentials were breached or for other security matters, like password changing, from time to time.

Receive productive payments

Initially a Sana web store will only be able to interact with MercadoPago in a sandbox mode.

For you to receive productive payments, you first have to pass the homologation process. To do this, you have to select your web store in credentials, and complete a form with basic information about your business. After that your web store will be automatically activated, and you will be able to start using the production keys and receive real payments.
