Announcing our payment gateway integration with eWAY - the leading payment processor in Australia and New Zealand. We began working on this integration a few days ago and are very pleased to enable this for you, our customer. As usual, strict compliance for the security of financial transactions is at the core of the feature. More integrations are planned in the near future, so stay tuned and watch out this blog for an update from us.
Using eWAY as a payment processor, you are now able to accept payments for your invoices using credit cards. To enable this integration, you must create an account with - eWAY and provide the details needed to our software. In short, two items are needed - an API Key and a password.
THe API Key and password are available for SANDBOX and PRODUCTION environments. You will need both , in order to verify that the integration will work and your customers will be able to pay you using credit cards. At first, use the SANDBOX details and enter those values in the software as shown below. These keys are for your account and can be obtained from eWAY at the time of account setup with them.
Once the settings are entered and the account is setup correctly, sandbox or production, if needed and invoice can be picked and the online payment mode can be set to the selected payment gateway of your choice. In this case, eWAY. If the client has portal access, then they are able to login to the portal, and view the invoice details. If they want, they could elect to pay the invoice using a credit card and enter all the relevant information as shown below.
Your client can then hit "Submit Payment" and the payment will flow through, processed directly from the PCI compliant servers hosted at eWAY. Easy!
We hope our customers in Australia and New Zealand will appreciate the integration as we look to grow our integration roadmap in the coming months and keep enhancing the platform, making it easier than ever before for freelancers to manage their accounting at an affordable price.
