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.

The WHMCS eWAY 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 enter their details again.

Migrating to eWAY from eWAY Rapid 3.1

To migrate your installation from the eWAY Rapid 3.1 module to the eWAY module:

  1. Obtain the Public API Key from eWAY (see above).
  2. Log in to the WHMCS Admin Area.
  3. Go to Configuration () > System Settings > Payment Gateways.

Card Fields are Not Displayed

Card Number, Expiry Date, and CVV Number 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, reenter and save your configuration information at Configuration () > System Settings > Payment Gateways.
