Omnipay: eWAY

eWAY driver for the Omnipay PHP payment processing library

Build Status Latest Stable Version Total Downloads

Omnipay is a framework agnostic, multi-gateway payment processing library for PHP 5.3+. This package implements eWAY support for Omnipay.

eWay was launched in Australia in 1998 and now operates payment gateways in 8 countries.


Omnipay is installed via Composer. To install, simply require league/omnipay and omnipay/eway with Composer:

composer require league/omnipay omnipay/eway

Basic Usage

The following gateways are provided by this package:

  • Eway_Direct -- This gateway is deprecated. If you have existing code that uses it you can continue to do so but you should consider migrating to Eway_RapidDirect
  • Eway_RapidDirect -- This is the primary gateway used for direct card processing, i.e. where you collect the card details from the customer and pass them to eWay yourself via the API.
  • Eway_Rapid -- This is used for eWAY Rapid Transparent Redirect requests. The gateway is just called Eway_Rapid as it was the first implemented. Like other redirect gateways the purchase() call will return a redirect response and then requires you to redirect the customer to the eWay site for the actual purchase.
  • Eway_RapidShared -- This provides a hosted form for entering payment information, other than that it is similar to the Eway_Rapid gateway in functionality.

See the docblocks within the gateway classes for further information and links to the eWay gateway on line.

For general usage instructions, please see the main Omnipay repository.
