In order to use the CyberSource payment processor, you will need input credentials into Soapbox that will be provided in your CyberSource account.

  4. Click Security Keys for SOAP Toolkit API
  5. On the Security Keys for the Soapbox Toolkit API page, click the Generate Key button
  6. Note the transaction key displayed in the text box. Per CyberSource: 

    "Because you will not see the key again after you leave the page, you must immediately copy or download the key to a safe location on your computer"
