Canada’s largest credit and debit card processor now supports WEX with PetroTrak®

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep. 26, 2018-- WEX Inc. (NYSE: WEX), a leading global provider of corporate payment solutions, is expanding its presence in Canada with its announcement today that it has integrated with Moneris Solutions Corporation (“Moneris”), Canada’s largest processor of debit and credit payments.

“We are pleased to expand fleet and commercial card acceptance in Canada through our partnership with WEX,” said Patrick Diab, VP of Product and Client Solutions at Moneris. “Our payment support for WEX Fleet Cards means that petroleum-based merchants are now open to business from a leading provider of corporate payment solutions.”
