A Merchant Application represents an intent to enter into an aggreement with Clearhaus A/S.

A common application process goes through at least the following stages:

submitted -> under_review -> signed -> live

After the Merchant Agreement is signed, a Merchant Account is created and once set live, the Merchant can start accepting payments.

An Application can optionally have a signer other than the original creator. A signer is the person who will sign the Merchant Agreement and will become the point of contact from then on. The signer is also the user who will have initial access to the Merchant Account in
