Keep your customers’ card information current with Visa Account Updater (VAU) and Mastercard’s Automatic Billing Updater (ABU)

Credit card account updater programs supported by Moneris Online Payment make it easy for you to keep up-to-date records of your clients’ information. Visa Account Updater (VAU) and MasterCard’s Automatic Billing Updater (ABU) are designed to support businesses with standing orders, repeat customers or recurring billing for services such as subscriptions.

How it works:

  • Participating card issuers regularly send customer account information, such as updated card numbers and expiry dates, to the VAU and ABU databases
  • You send a request to Moneris to verify and update your customers’ card information
  • We query the VAU and ABU databases for account updates and send them to you
  • You authorize your transactions quickly and efficiently

You can retrieve updated credit card data in one of two ways:

SFTP Batch File

  • You compile a batch file of your customers’ credit card information and send that file to us
  • The next day, we send back a response file with updated information, including new card numbers, expiry dates, account closures, card thefts and when a customer switches brands
  • Based on the information we send back, you update customer card data in your records/system

Auto Managed by Moneris Online Payment

  • Best for merchants already using the Recurring Billing feature
  • You log in to your Moneris account and switch on the automated management in you Merchant Resource Centre
  • The customer account data stored in your Moneris Vault or as Recurring Billing transactions will automatically be sent to the VAU and ABU databases to retrieve updates
  • If there is new card information, Moneris will automatically update customer profiles on your behalf

Why it works for you:

  • Reduces administrative costs associated with maintaining account data
  • Lets you better manage cash flow by eliminating dormant accounts
  • Lessens risk for errors in data entry
  • Secure transfer of data through Moneris gives you and your customers peace of mind

Schedule automatic credit-card payments for your regular clients

If you bill your customers on a daily, weekly, monthly or yearly basis, the Recurring Billing feature will help you simplify your invoicing and eliminate wasteful snail-mail billing. Ideal for businesses that require regular payments for services such as magazine subscriptions, gym memberships or charitable donations, Recurring Billing lets you capture your customer’s transaction information and schedule automated, ongoing payments for a fixed amount through their credit card.

How it works:

  • Register a customer profile and set up recurring payments via any of the Moneris Online Payment integration options, including API, Batch File, Hosted Paypage and Virtual Terminal
  • Automatically bill customers a fixed amount on a recurring, fully flexible schedule
  • Update existing profiles when customers update their card information
  • Delete profiles that are no longer in use
  • Access detailed reporting to monitor what payments are coming in, which have been processed and which cards have been declined or need to be updated

Why it works for you:

  • Card information is stored on our secure servers so you don’t have to keep sensitive information on your own system
  • Set-it-and-forget-it automatic billing means you don’t have to remember to process and record a transaction when payment is due
  • 24/7 access to detailed reporting lets you better manage your cash flow
  • Automated billing directly to a credit card reduces the risk for error and added costs associated with accepting cheques, such as encoding problems, NSF cheques and wrong amounts or dates

Eliminate manual data entry and streamline transaction processing

Do you process a large number of transactions on a regular basis? Batch Processing from Moneris Online Payment is the solution you need to simplify your workflow.

How it works:

  • Processes multiple transactions that do not require a real-time authorization response
  • Files of batch transactions can be created in any spreadsheet or database program and saved in CVS or XML format
  • All batch files are uploaded to Moneris’ secure servers for processing using an industry standard Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP)
  • We send back a response file to confirm your transactions have been processed

Why it works for you:

  • Saves time by automating your billing process and eliminating manual data entry
  • Streamlines your administration and reporting for high-volume, card-not-present transactions
  • Reduces errors by compiling and sending all transactions in a single file, leaving less room for error
  • Improves security by transferring your files directly to Moneris over a 128-bit encrypted connection using SFTP

Batch Processing is ideal for:

  • Book, magazine and newspaper publishers
  • Internet service providers
  • Charities
  • Parking lots and garages
  • Utility providers such as hydro, gas and oil
  • Insurance providers
  • Government services such as tax collection
  • Educational institutions
