If you already have a Beanstream account, then you can set it up in you FreshBooks account by going to “Settings” in the top right corner of your account and then to the page “Online Payment”. Next, check off Beanstream under the “Auto-bill Capable Gateways”. You’ll be prompted for three pieces of information from your Beanstream account: Merchant ID, User Login, and Password. Please contact Beanstream if you are unable to find the necessary information.
