New API for North American Payment Solutions

Moneris® has created a new payment API that allows developers to build solutions in both Canada and the U.S. via one consolidated package. This Unified API means less work for developers and broader application for merchants.

A simpler solution

The new enhanced payment API allows developers to build payment acceptance solutions from both Canada and the U.S. using one point of entry. This means there is no longer a need for developers to track which URLs they connect to, instead developers just need to select the country and environment (testing or production) they are attempting to connect to.

The new API saves developers time and makes integration simpler. Developers will only need to develop once to enable transactions for both Canada and the U.S., and only have to download one integration guide for the API.

Same great features and more

Moneris’ new payments API maintains all the current features of the Canadian and U.S. APIs, while increasing functionality through new features. The API includes all card-not-present transactions for:

  • Credit
  • ACH (US only)
  • INTERAC® Online (Canada only)
  • 3-D Secure (Verified by Visa® and MasterCard SecureCode®)
  • Transactional Risk Management (Canada only)
  • It also includes card-present transactions for MSR and encrypted MSR

For Moneris Gift and Loyalty, enhanced data for corporate card processing (Level 2/3), Apple Pay® and for our integrated PINpad solutions, please refer to the specific API for that solution.


  • Both the old APIs and the new consolidated payments API can be found on GitHub.
  • The new API will simplify the development effort for all our Canadian and U.S. integrators.
  • Existing API merchants can chose to use the old API, the new API, or both.
  • If you wish to upgrade to the new API and have questions, don’t hesitate to engage our eProducts consulting team at

Change is good

While we recommend upgrading to the new Moneris consolidated payments API to have access to the latest and greatest features, we recognize that this change may not be possible or right for all merchants at the moment. Moneris does not have a set deadline for developers to move to the new API. While new features will only be added to the consolidated API, we will continue to support the separate Canadian and U.S. APIs.
