Offer Details – Moneris Go and Moneris Online Fee Waivers and Website Creation Support
Moneris will waive the monthly fees applicable to the Plan as follows:
(i) fee waiver for the first six months (6) months, applicable to merchants who sign up for Moneris Go and Moneris Online; or
(ii) fee waiver for the first four (4) months, applicable to merchants who sign up for either Moneris Go or Moneris Online,

After the Waiver Period is over, monthly fees applicable to the Plan in the amount of $29.95 CAD (plus tax) for Moneris Go and/or $39.95 CAD (plus tax) for Moneris Online will apply, as applicable, unless the merchant contacts Moneris to cancel the Plan at least ten (10) days prior to the expiry of the Waiver Period.

In addition, Moneris will provide, upon request by new or existing merchants who sign up for Moneris Online during the Offer Period, up to eight (8) hours of assistance to develop a website (the “Website Development Service”). The maximum Offer value is $419.40 CAD (plus tax) over six (6) months. For greater certainty, new or existing merchants who have not signed up through Moneris for the Plan during the Offer Period are not eligible for this Offer.
If the merchant requests use of the Website Development Service, the merchant agrees to provide Moneris with directions and instructions about the development of the merchant’s website and the merchant may be required to provide Moneris with permission to make changes and edit their website during the development. The merchant remains solely responsible for their website and the merchant needs to:
(i) review and approve any development, content, changes and edits suggested or made by Moneris to their website on their behalf; and (ii) ensure that they remove any editorial rights which they may have granted to Moneris when the merchant no longer wishes to receive the Website Development Service. Moneris is entitled at any time, and without prior notice, to discontinue providing the merchant with the Website Development Service for any reason. The Website Development Service is provided to the merchant on an “as is” and “as available” basis. All other representations or warranties, express or implied, including any warranties of merchantability or as to correctness, quality, accuracy or reliability or as to fitness for a particular purpose are specifically excluded and disclaimed. The liability of Moneris to the merchant arising out of, or in any way related to, the Website Development Service, will, in the aggregate, be limited to actual, direct and general monetary damages in an amount not to exceed the total fees, if any, paid by the merchant for the Website Development Service to Moneris. This limitation of liability applies regardless of the form in which any legal or equitable action may be brought against Moneris, whether under contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, and the foregoing will constitute the merchant’s exclusive remedy.
