Integrating your Moneris account

Before you begin, please ensure that you have a Moneris (Beta) account to manage Credit Card payments. Then, you can go to your EZRentOut account to integrate it.

  1. Go to your EZRentOut Dashboard and from there, to Settings –> Add Ons –> Enable Payments Through Credit Card. Here, select ‘Use Moneris (Beta)’.
  2. Enter the Moneris Store ID & API Key. More information on how to obtain Store ID and API key can be found hereMoneris Keys
  3. Once you’ve entered both the keys, hit the ‘Verify Account’ button to check whether Authorize.net has been successfully connected or not.
  4. You can also choose to check the option ‘Keep credit card on file when a Customer enters details from the Customer Portal’. This will save the credit card details last provided by Customers via the Customer Portal. These details can then be used to charge any future payments.
  5. Once done, scroll down to the end of the settings page and click ‘Update.’ This will save the settings and successfully connect your EZRentOut account to Moneris.

Here are some additional things to note while you’re integrating your Moneris account:

  • EZRentOut does not charge any commission/fee on transactions.
  • If credit card details of a Customer are entered by Staff or Admin User, they are always saved to your merchant gateways’ on-file storage, avoiding the need to re-enter credit card details for subsequent Orders.
  • For security reasons, EZRentOut doesn’t record this credit card information in its own database. Instead, it creates credit card profiles of Customers in the Moneris Vault and only accesses this credit card information on ‘charge payment’ requests.

Swiping the card

Let’s take a look at how charging payment via Moneris works in EZRentOut.

  1. On the Order details page, with every Customer, you’ll see the Credit Card icon. It’s red when there is no card in the record and green when there is a card on file.Credit Card Red
  2. The following is the form that pops-up when you click the red/green Credit Card icon. You can either swipe the credit card that allows us to catch all the details or add in the credit card details manually.

  3. Once the credit card information is entered, it’s saved on file (in Moneris’s database) and the Credit Card icon turns green.Credit Card Green
  4. Now when charging payment on this order, you can choose to use the Credit Card already on file or use a different card and update the card on file for this Customer.Charge Payment

Note: EZRentOut integration with Moneris supports credit card swipe with any generic magnetic card reader. However, we do not yet support POS based EMV card readers provided by Moneris.
