eWAY Shared Payments Gateway

The eWAY shared payments payment gateway for WooCommerce allows you to accept payment through any of the eWAY sites, AU, NZ, UK, without exposing you to the costly requirements of SSL certificates and PCI compliancy tests. On checkout customers are automatically redirected to an eWAY secure hosted page where they can enter their credit card details to complete the transaction, meaning that their credit card details never touches your server. The payment page customers are redirected to are fully customizable allowing you to use your own title, description, logo, page banner, page footer and the language the page are shown in.
