Integrating your Magento 2.0 online store with Moneris payment processing

Moneris has added Magento 2.0 to the list of shopping carts supported on the Moneris Gateway. Many online retailers favor Magento as their go-to ecommerce platform, so this integration is a natural fit for Moneris. Some merchants like the fact that it’s open source and free, others like its flexibility and scalability. Whatever your reason for implementing Magento, you can now add Moneris support as one of its advantages.

Freedom from development 
For those merchants who are not in a position to do their own development, the free version of the Magento platform and the free Magento shopping cart plugin from Moneris are a winning combination. Simply add the plugin to your Magento site, configure it, and you’ve got ecommerce capabilities that would normally take months to develop.

Supported features

The Magento shopping cart plugin supports the following features, among others:

  • Hosted Pay Page (HPP). Let Moneris host your payment page on our secure servers. Since customers would be entering their data on our secure site, this service can reduce your overall responsibility for PCI compliance.
  • Onsite processing via API. You can use the Moneris API to implement your pay page on your own web host.
  • Access to Moneris’ suite of security offerings:
    • vault service
    • hosted tokenization
    • address verification
    • payer authentication services, such as Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode.
  • Interac (online debit).
  • Magento credit memos for partial and full refunds.
  • Partial and full invoicing.
  • Authorize and authorize/capture modes.
