A Contact represents the contact person for the given Application. In most cases this is the user responsible for creating and filling out the application.

The provided email will receive notifications during the application process.

The contact person should be added as a Collaborator. This way they can login to and proceed with the application process. See ch:collaborators for more information on inviting collaborators.

If a signatory is provided in Application, they will become the point of contact from the moment a signature is requested for the Merchant Agreement. Subsequent notification emails will be sent to the signatory email.
