|Along with the device, it is necessary to have the Mercado Pago app to sign in to the device and manage the payments. You can download it for Android devices or iOS devices .
|Applications are the different integrations contained in one or multiple stores. You can create an application for each solution you implement in order to keep everything organized and maintain control that facilitates management.
