eWAY is Australia’s most popular online payment system, processing credit card transactions for more than 17,000 merchants globally. 4mation can seamlessly integrate eWAY into your eCommerce website to process your online payments securely and grow your business sustainably.
eWAY is an online payment gateway provider that connects to over 350 eCommerce website platforms including Magento, Prestashop, OsCommerce, Opencart, X-Cart and WordPress. eWAY authorises and processes online credit card purchases by acting as an intermediary between you (the merchant), the customer’s credit card provider, the issuing bank of the customer’s credit card and your bank (to receive the funds). With a range of pricing plans to suit your requirements and the scale of your online business, eWAY is an affordable solution for internet retailers and service providers of all sizes.
There are a number of ways 4mation’s developers can integrate eWAY into your website to process credit card payments from your customers. And once integrated, 4mation can also connect eWAY and your website to your other software systems such as Xero, MYOB, Zendesk and Salesforce to streamline and automate a number of other business processes for you.
Payment gateway: Depending on your requirements and website setup, you may choose to have customers taken to a responsive payment portal hosted by eWAY and styled to match your website – or if your website hosting environment is PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant, your website can establish a direct server-side connection to the eWAY platform.
No matter how you choose to integrate, eWAY offers anti-fraud protection, powerful verification tools and administration features such as refunds and transaction status queries that your staff can access from within your website CMS.
Returning customers: 4mation can integrate eWAY into your website’s shopping cart process to automatically populate billing details for returning customers, so they can checkout faster without having to re-enter their credit card details every time they shop on your website. This is a great way to encourage return business, especially from mobile shoppers.
Recurring payments: If your website sells products or services of a recurring nature such as subscriptions, 4mation can set up your website’s eWAY integration to automatically charge customers on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. By connecting this recurring payment feature to the functionality of your website and your back-end business systems, your online services or physical product deliveries can be automatically initiated or stopped depending on the actions of your customers.
Holding deposits: With eWAY, 4mation can set up your booking website to automatically reserve funds on a customer’s credit card without charging them (commonly known as PreAuth) – and then automatically process that payment (or not) at a later date depending on your payment terms. This feature is commonly used by hotels and booking websites that require a holding deposit to secure a reservation.
