Moneris to enable UnionPay acceptance for Canadian merchants

Moneris Solutions Corporation and UnionPay International has announced that they have entered into an agreement regarding Moneris’ acceptance of UnionPay cards which begin later this year.

Angela Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of Moneris, is to sign the agreement with UnionPay International on how to advance UnionPay card acceptance in Canada.

“We are very pleased to be partnering with UnionPay to bring card acceptance to our valued merchants,” said Ms. Brown. “The number of Chinese visitors to Canada is growing at a staggering rate and Moneris wants to ensure its customers are prepared to meet the demand for their payment method of choice.”

“The case has been clearly made for UnionPay acceptance in Canada,” said Jeff Guthrie, Chief Sales Officer at Moneris. “Our job as Canada’s largest payment processor is to give our merchants the ability to offer payment convenience to all of their customers. As the profile of Chinese visitors coming to Canada for business, leisure and study travel is rising, this is a natural response.”
