From WHMCS Documentation

We added this module in WHMCS 7.9. It supersedes the EWAY Rapid 3.1 module.

eWAY lets WHMCS users to accept online credit card payments easily and securely so they can grow their business fast. The Secure Fields solution allows merchants to securely and seamlessly process payments from their own website, without exposing the sensitive card data.

Further, the WHMCS integration takes advantage of Token Payments, allowing customers to securely store the card information within eWAY’s PCI DSS environment, and WHMCS uses the Token (which represent the saved card) to handle all future payments without the customer having to key in their details again.

Migrating to eWAY from eWAY Rapid 3.1

The eWAY Rapid 3.1 module included in previous versions of WHMCS can be easily replaced with the eWAY module. If the WHMCS installation has existing tokens stored from the previous module, a button will be shown on the Payment Gateways configuration page to swiftly migrate the tokens to the new module.

  1. Obtain the Public API Key from eWAY (see above).
  2. Log in to the WHMCS Admin Area.
  3. Navigate to the Setup menu.
  4. Click on the Payments option, and then again on Payment gateways.
  5. Enter your administrator password if prompted.
  6. Click on the Manage Existing Gateways button and locate the eWAY Rapid Module.
  7. Click on the Migrate to eWAY Module button.
  8. Enter the Public API Key where prompted and press the Migrate button
  9. The page will save and reload showing the eWAY module is active and the eWAY Rapid Module disabled
  10. Update any configuration on the newly activated module as required.
The Migrate to eWAY Module will only show if the WHMCS installation has Payment Methods associated with the eWAY Rapid Payments module.


Card Fields are Not Displayed

The Card Number, Expiry Date and CVV Number fields may not display on the shopping cart or the Manage Pay Methods page in the shopping cart, at Hello, User! > Payment Methods in the Client Area, or when you click Add Credit Card in the Summary tab in the client profile.

This indicates that eWAY is rejecting the eWAY API key in the configuration at Configuration () > System Settings > Payment Gateways. This might occur if you entered the API key incorrectly, it has expired, or eWAY revoked it.

To resolve the error, perform steps 4 and 5 from Adding the EWAY Payment Gateway above.
