How do you sign up for access to API without being a Biller or a Gateway?

https://www.cashtie.com/users/new doesn't seem to be for a developer

    That is the correct login for a developer. Should have what you need for access. Under documentation are your keys, and associate analytics for your account. I was able to signup and get access.

    Hi.
    Is "Gateway" as Company Type suitable for signing up as developer?

    Sorry this is a bit badly worded, let me explain the difference between Biller and Gateway, and we will use these questions as well to make changes to those names in the future:

    Biller (we should name this "Direct" moving forward):
    If you are using Cashtie API for your own app, you want to sign up as a biller. An example would be you are adding Cashtie barcodes to your bill pay application and have consumers pay their bills at a cash register.

    Gateway:
    If you are building a solution that others can use together with the Cashtie API you are a Gateway. An example is you are building a plugin for Magento or Shopify to allow ecommerce cash payments via Cashtie and now the ecommerce store owners start using your plugin with Cashtie API.

    Does signing up for either give you access to different tools?
    If they do have different tools, how can you get access to both sets of tools?

    Thx

    The only difference is that if you choose the Gateway you can request barcodes for different billers.

    I found that in most cases choosing "Billers" is most appropriate for all of the Challenge partners and standard developer accounts. There is no additional functionality.
