Monetra 8.14.0 released

April 6, 2020

Effective 04/06/2020

Monetra 8.14.0 has been released to the public and is a maintenance release.

This release is highly recommended for all users of Monetra and should be considered the most modern and stable release available.


Database Schema: v4.11 (compatible with v4.0)



  • Givex has been recertified.
  • First Data CardNet/Nashville recertification to include Visa Return Authorization and Card on File indicators.
  • Chase Paymentech recertification to include Card on File indicators.
  • Tsys recertification for updated compliance requirements.


  • Ability to send receipt emails both on demand as well is automatically for recurring and installment payments.
  • Recurring and Installment payments will now accept and honor merch_custom_fields and merch_req_fields.

Integration Changes:

  • GUT/GL reports now return reqamount, origauthamount, and authamount.
  • GUT/GL/GFT reports can specify user to limit report to specific sub user.
  • GUT/GL/GFT reports now return customer_id and token columns.
  • When configuring a merch_tax_rate, it can now be configured as NT if the merchant typically does not collect tax.
  • Email Receipts:
    • All email receipts require merch_name and merch_email to be configured.
    • trandetail can be passed rcpt_email containing a semi-colon separated list of email addresses to send the customer-copy of a receipt.
    • trandetail can send a copy of the receipt to the merchant's configured merch_email merchant parameter and will do so automatically if the merch_flags of RECEIVE_RECEIPTS_DETAIL is set. This can be overwritten with the boolean rcpt_merch_copy request parameter.
    • Recurring and Installment transactions can automatically send customer receipts if the token is tied to a customer. The customer would need both an email configured as well as set customer flag EMAIL_RECEIPT_RECURRING.
    • Recurring and Installment transactions can automatically send merchant receipts if merch_flags of RECEIVE_RECEIPTS_RECURRING is set.
    • rcpt_isduplicate parameter added. Default true if not set. Controls whether a trandetail generated receipt will be marked as a duplicate copy.
  • When re-activing a recurring or installment payment, skipmissed=true may be passed to skip any missed payments instead of catching up. If the merchant defaults to RECURRING_SKIPMISSED, skipmissed=false may be used instead.
  • New merch_flags:
    • RECEIVE_RECEIPTS_DETAIL: The merchant wishes to receive a copy of emailed receipt generated by trandetail.
    • RECEIVE_RECEIPTS_RECURRING: The merchant wishes to receive a copy of emailed receipt generated by installment or recurring transactions.
    • RECURRING_SKIPMISSED: The merchant wishes the default to be to not catch up on missed payments when reactivating a recurring or installment billing.
  • merch_custom_fields can now be stored with recurring and installment payments.


  • CSV output from Monetra may be incorrect if a field contained new lines.
