First install GA to your smartphone. How to install GA and attach it to MMM PO see Section 31 of the FAQ.
8. Use your camera or a device with GA App to connect GA to the your bitgo.com account by scanning the QR Code.

12. For enhanced security, you will be required to create a secondary password for the wallet to complete payment transactions along with your GA code. Select the option More Secure, invent a new password and re-enter it. For your convenience write all passwords on a separate piece of paper or use a password manager (for example, free KeePass software keepass.info or free LastPass lastpass.com). Press “Next”.
13. A popup will appear requesting to save file. Press “OK”.
14. A pdf file will download to your computer. Find and open it. This file will contain different codes with instruction to them. The first code we need — is for activation.
15. Type it in the Activation code from the PDF file and click “Activate wallet” -
16. After the wallet activation you will see the main page with your wallets (currently there’s only one, “My 1st wallet”), balances of the wallets and actual Bitcoin price. To view wallet details click on the wallet’s name.

This is the address you will need to add your Bitcoin account in MMM PO under the “Accounts” tab.. (Section 6 of the FAQ)
In addition: for your convenience you may create several wallets that can be used for different purposes to keep things separated and if it’s necessary you can transfer Bitcoins from one wallet to another:
а) Click on the wallet on the main page and press “Receive”
b) Now you can view all earlier generated addresses with the received amounts. Also you can generate a new receive address or use generated QR code. It should be noted, that all addresses generated earlier are functioning and you can receive Bitcoins on any of them. There’s no need to generate a new address for each transaction.
c) All transactions for that wallet will be displayed on the “Transactions” page. When you click on the individual transaction you will be able to see amounts and addresses associated with the transaction.
