Sending CVV

When setting up a new gateway connection, “nil” is the default setting when cvv_enabled isn’t explicitly defined.

Some Moneris accounts are configured such that they do not allow a CVV to be passed to them unless this value is set to true. If that is the case for your account, you can pass the extra boolean parameter cvv_enabled when adding the gateway. If you wish to never send the CVV for transactions, you can set cvv_enabled as false.


curl https://core.spreedly.com/v1/gateways.xml \
  -u 'C7cRfNJGODKh4Iu5Ox3PToKjniY:4UIuWybmdythfNGPqAqyQnYha6s451ri0fYAo4p3drZUi7q2Jf4b7HKg8etDtoKJ' \

Turning on AVS

Some Moneris accounts are configured such that AVS Checking will be done. If you’d like to perform such checking, you can pass the extra boolean parameter avs_enabled when adding the gateway:


curl https://core.spreedly.com/v1/gateways.xml \
  -u 'C7cRfNJGODKh4Iu5Ox3PToKjniY:4UIuWybmdythfNGPqAqyQnYha6s451ri0fYAo4p3drZUi7q2Jf4b7HKg8etDtoKJ' \

Stored credential gateway specific fields

A Moneris gateway supports our standardized Stored Credential Data fields. However, we also allow a few gateway specific fields related to Stored Credentials to be specified, which will override the default Stored Credential Data fields. These fields are issuer_id, payment_indicator, and payment_information. The overrides occur individually; for example, you could pass in a payment_indicator of Z, but use the default fields for everything else.

For more information on the accepted values for these fields, please see Moneris’ documentation in the section “A.1 Definitions of Request Fields – Credential on File”.

Gateway specific fields

When interacting with a Moneris gateway to run transactions, there are a number of gateway specific fields you can specify. See the details below the example for more information on each field.


curl https://core.spreedly.com/v1/gateways/LlkjmEk0xNkcWrNixXa1fvNoTP4/purchase.xml \
  -u 'C7cRfNJGODKh4Iu5Ox3PToKjniY:4UIuWybmdythfNGPqAqyQnYha6s451ri0fYAo4p3drZUi7q2Jf4b7HKg8etDtoKJ' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/xml' \
  -d '<transaction>
        <payment_method_token>56wyNnSmuA6CWYP7w0MiYCVIbW6</payment_method_token>
        <amount>100</amount>
        <currency_code>USD</currency_code>
        <gateway_specific_fields>
          <moneris>
            <issuer_id>123</issuer_id>
            <payment_indicator>C</payment_indicator>
            <payment_information>0</payment_information>
          </moneris>
        </gateway_specific_fields>
      </transaction>'

issuer_id, payment_indicator, and payment_information are related to Stored Credentials transactions.

Gateway specific response fields

A response from Moneris gateway may contain a specific field which you can find in the gateway_specific_response_fields.

For example:

<transaction>
  <token>LgpTNGjsWQs9DwdxcbreUVz0R8p</token>
  <transaction_type>Purchase</transaction_type>
  <gateway_specific_response_fields>
     <moneris>
       <issuer_id>123</issuer_id>
     </moneris>
  </gateway_specific_response_fields>
</transaction>

issuer_id is used for Stored Credentials transactions. Note that it will only be returned if the issuer_id gateway specific field is sent as an empty string.

If you’d like to request any gateway_specific_fields or gateway_specific_response_fields, please contact Support with your request and the gateway documentation for the fields of interest.
