Frequently Asked Questions

Magento, Moneris, and Multiple Currencies.
Last Updated 4 years ago

 
This is a question we see frequently. It is usually asked in one of two ways
  • I would like to run a single web store and use a one Moneris account for customers with a Canadian Billing address and another Moneris account for customers who have a US based billing address.
  • We have multiple Magento websites on a single Magento installation and would like to use our Moneris USD account on one and the Moneris CAD account on the other? What modules will we need for this.
 
    Please note that we offer two Moneris onsite Credit Card Modules for US currency.
  • One is for Canadian based merchants with a USD Moneris account.
  • One is for American based merchants with a USD Moneris account.
    Ensure you understand the differences before you purchase the module. Please contact us using the contact form if you need more clarity on the difference of these modules.
 
    Below are answers to these questions.
  • I would like to run a single webstore and use a one Moneris account for customers with a Canadian Billing address and another Moneris account for customers who have a US based billing address.
 
Yes this is possible with a few limitations
All currency will be treated as the base currency of the store regardless of the currency on the merchant account. (* this is a shortcoming if you planned to bill US customers in USD and CA customers in CAD. If that as your intention you will need to setup two web stores as store views always charge in base currency)
Please purchase the Canadian CAD onsite module and the Canadian USD onsite module*.
Install both modules and configure the allowable countries for each respectively.
