5 Reasons Why Merchants Choose Moneris

January 23, 2018

Have you asked other business owners which payment processor they use? If so, you’ve probably heard someone mention Moneris. With nearly 40% of the market share in Canada across an array of businesses, you may already frequent our merchants on a daily basis!

There are a number of reasons why Moneris has become the go-to choice for Canadian businesses, from innovative security features to award-winning customer service. Below are five of the most popular reasons merchants choose Moneris!

Payment Processing Authority

Moneris is one of the largest payment processors in Canada, and a recognized authority in both payments and consumer spending trends. Our position as the market leader gives us access to insights on consumer spending activity and  to publish data-backed findings such as our Quarterly Spend Reports, which discuss regional changes in spending behaviour. Moneris is also sought by media to comment on spending patterns during major activities, such as sporting and tourism events.

Data Security

Security is an important part of any business, from knowing who is walking in the door to trusting that their payment card is in good standing. With consumers moving away from cash, secure payment processing is vital to keeping your business safe from fraud. Moneris places significant importance on our security system, and continues to advance protocols to mitigate potential risks. To ensure your business and customers’ data are protected right from the point-of-sale, our solutions feature:

  • Industry-leading data encoding and end-to-end encryption during POS transactions EMV-certified chip and contactless products.
  • Compliance with global security practices, such as the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS).
  • Device permissions and restrictions that protect you from fraudulent transactions.
  • Code and application verification to prevent tampering.

Customer Support

At Moneris our customers are our top priority, which is why we’ve built a dedicated customer support team of over 300 employees. Ready when you need them, our team also takes the time to survey our merchants about the quality of service they receive, and will personally follow up with those who need extra care.

We also maintain a comprehensive online collection of resources, operating manuals, and troubleshooting guides to help you identify and fix issues with clear steps, so you’re always able to be payment ready.
