API Docs/Differences for Canadian Merchants

One of our Canadian clients is in the process of opening an Authorize.Net account. I'm not sure if they have a Global Payment merchant account or if they are involved in the beta phase mentioned is this newsletter:


We have implmented AIM and CIM for dozens of our U.S. clients, but I need to find out what API differences (if any) exist for Canadian based merchants.


Can you provide guidance on that? Do I need a separate Canadian test account?

Re: API Docs/Differences for Canadian Merchants

Hi acterry,


You do not need a separate test account for your Canadian merchants. We can confirm that international merchants will use same APIs as US merchants. In some circumstances, the minimum required fields may change. We will provide details on these differences when we are closer to a final release.
