TORONTO, ON – July 22, 2020Moneris Solutions Corporation (“Moneris”), Canada’s No. 1* processor of debit and credit card payments, in partnership with Bookmark Your Life Inc. (“Bookmark”), introduced Moneris Online, an end-to-end ecommerce solution for Canadian small business. 

With an increased urgency to evolve their business model, small businesses in Canada need a solution that not only helps them digitize their store, but also provides safe and secure payment acceptance options. Moneris Online delivers all of this along with clear, easy to understand pricing. 

Moneris Online allows small businesses to use Bookmark’s Artificial Intelligence Design Assistant (AiDA) to build a personalized, fully functional website in a matter of minutes. To complete the ecommerce site, Moneris Checkout and fraud protection tools like Moneris Kount and 3-D Secure are integrated into the shopping cart to enable quick and secure payments. 

“In today’s economy, helping small businesses start with an online store or taking their business online is critical to their livelihood,” said Patrick Diab, Chief Product Officer, Moneris. “Our ability to provide merchants with an ecommerce package that they can easily and quickly put to use is a testament to our commitment to help Canadian small businesses succeed.” 

In January, Moneris announced its investment in, and partnership with, Bookmark to deliver online business solutions. Moneris Online is the first major integration between the two companies. 

“It is exciting for us as a Canadian small business to be an integral part of Moneris Online, which focuses on supporting other small businesses,” said David Kosmayer, Founder and CEO of Bookmark. “By offering an all-in-one solution that includes everything a small business owner needs to go online, it takes a lot of the complexity and stress out of the equation and lets them focus on what’s important, running their business.”
