First Data Global Gateway Virtual Terminal

First Data sends you a welcome email with a link to log into their "Virtual Terminal". Once inside the virtual terminal you can download the digital certificate (which has the RSA Private Key and Certificate), it gives you 2 options, "API" and "Web Service"

When downloading the perm file, make sure to select for API Download and not the WebService.

First Data will provide you with two digital certificates which both need to be cut and paste into the Digital Certificate field found in your First Data gateway setup in Shopify.

They will look similar to this:
