Challenges Faced by Using an Outdated Payment System

Our client expanded their business across North America. The client wanted a smooth and powerful payment system, which could manage thousands of transactions at a time.

  • Limited Payment Acceptance: The existing payment system of our client was only accepting limited credit cards. Restricting our client to potentially cater to a larger group of customer base. Additionally, limiting revenue streamers from alternative payment methods like digital wallets and buy now, pay later (BNPL) options.
  • Compliance Issues with Canadian Regulations: The lack of compliance with Canadian regulations results in a violation of data privacy and financial laws.
  • No Support for Interac Debit: The absence of Interac Debit support in our current payment processing system has led to abandoned carts.
  • Limited Local Customer Support: The existing payment processing solution of our client wasn’t offering local customer support as they didn’t have physical offices in Canada.
  • Security Vulnerabilities: The struggle to provide high-level security in customer data and payment information results in a lack of customer trust.
  • Cumbersome Checkout Process: The complicated and slow checkout process led to high cart abandonment rates, resulting in staggering losses in potential sales and decreased conversions. All this impacts the bottom line and growth trajectory.
  • Scalability Limitations: The existing payment system is required to meet the evolving requirements of the transaction volumes. Additionally, it hinders the capability to meet the market opportunities and sustain growth momentum.

What is the Process of Integrating Moneris Within the Odoo ERP Platform?

As an experienced software development company, we understand the importance of smooth payment integration for your eCommerce solution. Here is a complete process.

  • We first understand your specific requirements regarding payment processing and via which method you want to connect Moneris to Odoo (custom API integration or use a hosted payment page) within your Odoo eCommerce solution.
  • We research the Moneris Payment Gateway documentation to understand its APIs, authentication methods, and transaction flow. We configure your Moneris account with the necessary settings and obtain the API credentials required for integration.
  • We set up a development environment to ensure that integration work does not impact your live eCommerce site. This environment closely mirrors your production environment, allowing us to test and debug without affecting your customers’ experience.
  • Using the flexible architecture of Odoo and APIs, we develop custom modules or extensions to integrate Moneris Payment Gateway within your eCommerce platform. This involves implementing payment processing logic, handling transaction callbacks, and providing PCI compliance for safe online transactions.
  • We perform testing to make sure that the Moneris integration works accurately across different scenarios, including successful payments, declined transactions, and refunds. We perform both unit testing and end-to-end testing to validate the integration’s reliability and security.
  • We involve your team in the UAT phase to ensure that the Moneris integration meets your expectations and business requirements. Any issues or feedback identified during this phase are addressed before moving ahead in the production environment.
  • Once the Moneris integration passes all tests and receives approval from your team, we deploy the changes to your production environment. We monitor the deployment process to minimize any downtime and ensure a smooth transition.
