WooCommerce eWAY Gateway

The eWAY extension for WooCommerce allows you to take payments directly on your store via the eWAY Rapid 3.1 API without having customers leave your store.

The integration with YITH Subscription allows you to process also subscription-based and recurring payments automatically.

To make them work together, you must install and activate both plugins.

To learn about how to create an eWay account and get an SSL certificate, please follow the plugin documentation here.

Now you can enable eWay gateway in WooCommerce > Settings > Payments as shown below.

Enable eWay gateway

Your customers will then be able to complete the checkout by choosing eWay payment gateway.

This way, on the renewal date, the customer will automatically be charged in his/her card for the recurring payment agreed for.

In the subscription details, you will be able to see the gateway used but also to perform the following actions on the customer’s subscription:

  • cancel: both the admin and the customers can cancel a subscription.
  • pause: both the admin and the customers can pause a subscription.
  • add multiple subscriptions to the same cart: any user will be able to add more than one subscription to the same cart and pay by credit card.
  • edit details of ongoing subscriptions: billing cycle, price, billing date, expiry date, subscription recurring amount.

You will be able to edit the following subscription information:

Recurring period: you can change the duration of the billing cycle and change it to a given number of days, weeks, months or years.

Start date: you can change the start date of the subscription. A note in the subscription details will keep track of this action. You will see a note with the following text: The start date has been changed from xx/xx/xxxx to xx/xx/xxxx.

Payment due date: change here the date of the next payment. The customer will automatically be charged on the new date you’ve set. A note in the subscription details will keep track of this action.

Expired date: you can change here the subscription expiry date here. Remove the date if you want the subscription to NEVER expire.
Please, note that if the subscription is already expired, changing the expiry date here will not re-activate the subscription, you will have to change it from the subscription Actions box on the right. Read more about this here.

You will also be able to edit the price of the recurring fee.
