To add Affiliates to a company's Membership, please update the Membership information on the SIGIS website by:
A SIGIS Member may add as many Affiliates that are associated with the Primary/Legal Organization. If your company needs multiple roles (merchant, POS vendor, Acquirer, etc.) you can set those up by making the appropriate selection during setup. You will receive an email approving the request, if declined an explanation will be provided.
Please note that names displayed on the 90% Merchant and IIAS Merchant List are based on the DBA(s) listed on the approved certification or registration form.
If a company has DBAs and also does business under the Organization's Legal Name, the Organization's Legal Name must also be listed as a DBA on the certification or registration form. This will allow for the Organization's Legal Name to be listed as a SIGIS IIAS Certified or 90% Registered merchant.
To add an additional contact to a SIGIS Membership, the Primary Contact may follow the steps below:
NOTE: If five or more contacts are already active on your account the additional contacts will need to be added by the SIGIS Help Desk. The primary contact will need to send an email to email@example.com requesting to add the new contact and provide the following information for the new contact:
The SIGIS Members Area login information will be sent via email to the new contact. (Please remember to check your spam filter; the email will come from firstname.lastname@example.org). This login information enables access to the SIGIS Member Area on the SIGIS website.
