Anyways, I've just been dabbling around with Moneris' INTERAC Online
(Canada) integration method today. It was quite the process, going
through their testing and certification phases (whew!) however, I
added a few things to the Moneris gateway to handle the actions
idebit_purchase and idebit_refund (required to capture or refund the
amount) and a form helper to create the form required to post to
I still have yet to add a required bit of validation for what gets
posted back from Interac, as well I just noticed the entire
Integration::FormHelper stuff in the new version of AM and would be up
for converting my lame form helper into a similar method to ChronoPay,
I guess I'm just wondering, is anybody actually interested in seeing
this functionality in ActiveMerchant?
We'd love to support INTERAC Online in Shopify. Does Moneris provide
an easy way of testing the INTERAC online system?
PayPal Express is probably something useful to look at in the
ActiveMerchant code, as it is also a hyrid of direct payment with some
For the longest time I was under the assumption that it would be just
a matter of creating a DebitCard object, unfortunately after delving
into the documentation I learned this was not the case. The way they
have it set up re-directs the user to a website where they choose
their financial institution (Currently supporting TD Canada Trust,
Royal Bank, and ScotiaBank) and then they login to their bank account
to 'preauth' the funds. The INTERAC site then re-directs the user back
to my application which commits the 'capture' (Moneris calls this an
In regards to testing, INTERAC provides a testing site where you input
fake bank information and send it back to your app to handle it. Then,
you would utilize the same Moneris test terminal (located at
https://esqa.moneris.com/mpg/) to make sure any captures or refunds
were executed properly.
I'm slowly getting into the PayPal methods, however it's quite
intimidating at first considering how many different account types and
services they provide. However, it sounds like INTERAC Online is quite
similar to PayPal Express.
Anyways, just wanted to see if there was any interest. Not sure when
I'll actually find the time to write up some AM patches to support it,
however I definitely want to give back to this awesome project which
has helped me out a ton.

I'm definitely interested and I think there may be more services like
this, especially in Europe. The only problem is finding the correct
way of actually integrating these weird hyprid integrations into
