Begin setting up your account by clicking 'Get Started'
Welcome to the MONESQ dashboard!
You may begin using many of the features of your MONESQ account right now. However, to complete your setup and start using MONESQ fully, you must link your operating account. To do so, click the blue "Complete your account setup" button in the top right.
Completing the Know Your Business (KYB) form and linking your operating account
Once you click 'Complete your account setup' you will be presented with the KYB form, which serves as your merchant application. KYB is a regulatory requirement to verify customers’ identities. Completing this form will link your operating account and allow you to start accepting online payments once approved. You can then link your trust account if desired. This is highly recommended for any attorney managing trust accounts, as MONESQ is designed to keep operating funds from commingling with trust funds throughout the billing process.
Populate your business information here. Be sure to use your legal business name, the name that appears on your official documentation and your bank account. Your federal tax ID should be your government-supplied EIN, or your social security number if you are a sole proprietor.

Control person & owners
A control person is a person with significant responsibility to control, manage, or direct the merchant entity. Examples include managing partner, managing member, general partner, or any other individual who regularly performs similar functions. Each firm must have a control person identified. This person may or may not be an owner.
You must also ensure that each person owning more than 25% of the business is listed in your merchant application If you need to add additional owners, click the green '+' button:
Terms & conditions
Agree to Terms and Conditions by checking the box to certify that you have read and agree to the Credit Card and ACH terms and conditions, then click 'Submit':
NOTE: Please don't close the page after you click the 'Agree and Finish' button. You will be automatically redirected within 15 seconds.
Congratulations! Your application has been successfully submitted. Once approved, you will receive a confirmation email.
Linking your Trust account
If you manage trust accounts, we highly recommend using MONESQ Plus, but whether you are using MONESQ Free or MONESQ Plus, linking your trust account will allow you to send trust deposit invoices and receive payments directly into those accounts in compliance with IOLTA and ABA rules.
