If you do not need a merchant user anymore, you can delete it.

To delete the merchant user, click Delete on the Edit Merchant page in the Users tab.

Info

In the current implementation, the Delete button only restricts the merchant user’s access to the Merchant Portal. However, you can change the behavior in your project.
