WooCommerce Eway Gateway


The Eway extension for WooCommerce allows you to take credit card payments directly on your store without redirecting your customers to a third party site to make payment. Supports WooCommerce Subscriptions, WooCommerce Refunds API, as well as token payments, which allows customers to save credit cards for future purchases. Everything happens on your site without the customer ever leaving.

The Eway payment gateway for WooCommerce makes use of Eway’s brand new Rapid 3.1 API, it supports 3D Secure and is fully PCI compliant as per Eway’s specifications and adds support for processing subscription payments as well as token payments allowing customers to save credit cards for future purchases.

By using Eway’s Rapid 3.1 API there is a single endpoint for processing payment, meaning you only need this one extension to take payment through any of Eway’s processing countries, Eway Australia, Eway New Zealand, Eway Singapore, Eway Malaysia, and Eway Hong Kong. Eway uses complex DNS technology to ensure your payment is routed to the correct country.

Does this require an Eway merchant account?

Yes! An Eway merchant account, customer API key and customer API password are required for this gateway to function.

Does this require an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate is recommended for additional safety and security for your customers.

Where do I find my Eway API Key?

Eway has updated the API setup instructions. Please go to this link for the latest information:

Eway Credit Card option not showing at checkout

When in live mode, you need to have SSL enabled and your store must be using AUD, NZD, SGD, HKD or MYR as the store currency. You must also have valid API keys for the mode you are using (Sandbox credentials for Sandbox mode; and live credentials for live mode).

Where can I find a list of error codes and their meanings?

A list of error codes can be found inside the Eway Rapid 3.1 Documentation. Download the Eway Rapid 3.1 Documentation

I am getting a V6018 error code at checkout

When using Eway, the store currency must match the Eway location you are using. For example, if you’re using Eway Australia you need to have your store currency set to AUD.

Is 3D Secure supported?

Yes, it is, as of version 3.0 of the plugin.

Failed to process your transaction, error code: SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL

If you get an error that says:

Failed to process your transaction, error code: SOAP-ERROR: Parsing WSDL: Couldn't load from ''; : failed to load external entity ""

Check that you’re using the correct API key and that the correct password has been entered. If you’re using sandbox mode, be sure to use the API key and password from your Eway Partner Account sandbox account.

Since switching to eWay via this plug-in, we’ve had numerous customers complain about not being able to make payment. It’s not affecting everyone, as orders are still rolling in from other customers. The plug-in causes a number of errors that show up in the server error logs. What’s worse, is after disabling the plug-in I can’t for the life of me get it to stop loading its assets on the checkout. Have disabled Cloudflare caching, cleared server level caching, cleared Wordpress level caching (all 15 plus times), and it still loads its assets during checkout. Not something I’ve ever come across before. It’s seems impossible to get this plug-in to go away. Next I’ll have to delete it, to see if it then stops affecting our checkout. Very odd. I prefer the eWay implementation from WebAware. However, we could use that as it was supported by a checkout plugin we use (FunnelKit), so we had to switch to this buggy eWay plugin. Now looking at dropping eWay entirely due to the issues with this plugin.

We previously used the non native eway plugin by webaware. Worked fine. Moved to this one and it started putting payments through as recurring subscription payments. We do not offer recurring sub payments never have, have no software on our website to do with this and never will. eway said to ask woo commerce. Woo commerce took no liability and told us to disconnect all the plugins move to storefront theme etc and trouble shoot despite the non native plugin working perfectly. Every time woocommerce gets involved with a payment gateway plugin it does not work properly. Stripe is problematic, woocommerce paypal is problematic. Which is why from now on I will never use any of them.

When customers are checking out NOW it tells the customer the Card Expiry Date entered is incorrect , Eways know about it and Wordpress has not responded or done anything up update or fix this issue
Eost 20, 2019
I’ve been emailing WooCommerce about this bug for about 6 months. Big shame on WooCommerce for not taking care of this issue. Despite several update releases from them, it is still yet to be fixed, so here is the bug and the fix. When using with a multi-currency site, you will get problems with payments and the amounts charged. To fix it: /plugins/woocommerce-gateway-eway/includes/class-wc-eway-api.php on line 203. This: ‘CurrencyCode’ => get_woocommerce_currency(), Should be this: ‘CurrencyCode’ => $pre_wc_30 ? $order->get_order_currency() : $order->get_currency(),
