In live mode (not test mode), SSL must be enabled in order to use ANZ.

ANZ also requires AU or NZ dollars to work.

Which method does this plugin use?

↑ Back to top

The payment form is merchant hosted.

Merchant hosted is where the merchant provides an SSL secure page on their website for purchasers to enter credit card details and order details. The merchant’s system then sends one encrypted message to ANZ eGate, which processes the transaction and provides an approved/declined response. The merchant’s system then displays a response to the purchaser.

This model requires the merchant to implement measures such as 128-bit SSL encryption for payment authorisation, firewall and intruder detection software to protect the card details. See http://www.anz.com.au/australia/business/merchant/implementation.asp.

I received a notice from ANZ about moving away from MD5 algorithm by 30 November and upgrading to SHA256 algorithms. Am I affected?

↑ Back to top

No, our ANZ eGate for WooCommerce extension does not use the MD5 algorithm, so it is already compliant with SHA256 algorithms. You need not do anything. Your payment processing remains unaffected.
