Direct Connection

 eway secure 

 Payments:

Where environments are PCI-DSS compliant or use Client Side Encryption, card data may be submitted directly to Rapid 3.1. This allows processing of transactions in one server side call.

 

Refund and Partial-refund:

The Direct Connection method also now supports refunds. This allows your application to process a refund.

 

Pre-Authorise and Capture

eWAY's PreAuth solution allows merchants to reserve funds on a customer's credit card without charging it.

The merchant can then Capture the transaction at their convenience either manually or by Schedule Task.

This service is perfect for merchants (for example)

  • who take advance orders (an event, a product release) where payment is on a specific future date
  • who take advance orders where payment is made when the goods are available for despatch
  • whose prices are dependent on variable costs (the final cost is +-15%) of the Authorised amount

Please note that PreAuth is currently only available for Australian merchants.

 

Token Payments & Recurring Purchases

Capture your customers details once, and securely store them on eWAY’s PCI DSS compliant servers for any time they wish to make a purchase in the future.

Recurring payments allows this application to process recurring transactions using the customer's saved Token.

 

eWAY Client Side Encryption

Allows for client side encryption of sensitive credit card information so that a non-pci compliant merchant can accept the form data directly and then process the payment directly with eWAY.

Benefits:

Allows merchants to handle the front end of the payment process completely and then process the payment at the back end.

Clients have a uniform payment experience on the merchant’s website creating confidence. 

How it works:

Asymmetric encryption is used to encrypt the sensitive data using a public key from an RSA public/private key pair. The data is then only able to be decrypted by eWAY’s servers using the stored private key. The public key is made available to the merchant for encryption however the private key is retained by eWAY so that only eWAY is able to decrypt sensitive data.

 

 Countries:

Rapid3.1 Direct Connection is available to merchants in Australia, New Zealand, UK and Singapore.

Adaptive Payments:

Adaptive Payments is available for use with PayPal payments internationally in any country where PayPal is accepted, and it enables you to make split payments to multiple recipients, send chained payments to multiple recipients, one after the other, and make parallel payments to multiple recipients at the same time.

Simple payments enable a sender to send a single payment to a single receiver.

For example, your website can use an Adaptive Payments payment flow to transfer money resulting from a sale from your customer's PayPal account to your own account. This is the traditional kind of payment.

Parallel payments enable a sender to send a single payment to multiple receivers.  Each payment request has a maximum of six receivers.

For example, your application might be a shopping cart that enables a buyer to pay for items from several merchants with one payment. Your shopping cart allocates the payment to merchants that actually provided the items. PayPal then deducts money from the sender's account and deposits it in the receivers' accounts.

Chained (Instant and Delayed) payments enable a sender to send a single payment to a primary receiver.

The primary receiver keeps part of the payment and pays secondary receivers the remainder. For example, your application could be an online travel agency that handles bookings for airfare, hotel reservations, and car rentals.

The sender sees only you as the primary receiver. You allocate the payment for your commission and the actual cost of services provided by other receivers. PayPal then deducts money from the sender's account and deposits it in both your account and the secondary receivers' accounts.

The Instant option pays the Vendor immediately upon PayPal approval, with the Delayed payment option payment to you is instant and you can delay Vendor payment by upto 90 days. Delayed payments are activated manually in the Order/Edit/PayVendor tab or via the Schedule Task. 


Adaptive Payments - Refund:

Simple payments refund from the store owner.

Parallel payments refund from the primary receiver of the payment and each secondary receiver.

Chained (Instant and Delayed) payments enable a receiver with a business or premier account can grant you third-party access (to make a refund) by logging in to PayPal, choosing API Access on the Profile page, clicking the link to Grant API permission, and selecting Refund after clicking Configure a custom API authorization.

Preapproval/Recurring payments:

With recurring payments, you can bill customers on a regular basis at intervals that you choose in the product specification. A custom Scheduled Task automates recurring billing according to your subscription schedule of payments. 

 

Shipping and Tax:

Where the shopping cart contains products requiring shipping from multiple Vendors, the tax and shipping cost is optionally charged per Vendor basket and distributed with the payment.

Email:

The customer, store owner and each vendor automatically recieve a confirmation email after the PayPal payment process is successfull.

Single / Multi-Store:

The plugin may be purchased and licensed for a single store (www.yourstore.com) or multi-store (yourstore.com).

Customer Experience:

This payment method redirects the purchaser to a secure PayPal payment site where payment is completed by Credit Card or PayPal account and returns them to the "Completed Order" page.

Additional Information:

Please feel free to send any query to plugins@bricksnweb.com

 PayPal:

You can use Adaptive Payments in any country where PayPal is accepted.

Further information is available at the PayPal developer website.

Note:

  • The store owner must have a PayPal Business account. Buyers and Vendors can have any PayPal account type.
  • PayPal requires you must get prior approval before using the Adaptive Payments API.
  • The API credentials issued by PayPal to you are entered in the plugins' "Live" and "SandBox" Configuration sections.
