    G'day Sam, that's a good question (and I ought to know!)

    I've asked on the Gravity Forms forum and I'll get you an answer once I know. I think it should work with the minimum license, but wait until I get an answer from Rocket Genius.

    G'day Sam, Rocket Genius have confirmed that it will work on the Personal license. i.e. it will work on any Gravity Forms license.

    cheers,
    Ross

    Hi Ross, sorry to bother you again, but I am having trouble with the point at which the hand-off occurs between Gravity & eWAY. I have set up the form and have the settings for the eWAY plugin set as test, but it isn't re-directing me to the eWAY payment page, it just returns a result true.

    I'm assuming it's somewhere in the form send confirmation, but it just doesn't seem to be coming together.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks again, Sam

    This plugin uses the Direct Payments API, so the payment will have occurred online; there is no "redirection", it all happens on your website.

    If payment is successful, the form proceeds to the confirmation step and shows your confirmation message. If payment is unsuccessful, it shows you an error. Another user has given me feedback with some explanatory text that I really need to get into the readme file about that!

    What do you get if you put in a credit card other than 4444333322221111?

    Thanks for your quick response Ross, we are actually trying to link the form directly to the eWAY hosted payments page rather than collecting the credit details online.

    We are hoping to just collect the donation amount and then go straight to the eWAY hosted page to fill in the other details so no credit card info has been entered on the site. I was advised by eWAY that Gravity forms (and consequently your plugin) would allow us to do that. It's almost happening, but not quite, I can smell it - hahaha!

    Sorry Sam, this plugin only does direct payments. You'll need to use another method if you want to use the hosted form. I have no plans to support a hosted form as it doesn't offer anything to my clients that they can't get just using PayPal, and Rocket Genius have a good plugin for that.

    NB: Gravity Forms doesn't store the credit card info, if that's why you aren't going with direct payments. The card info is sent to eWAY, but is never kept on your website. Your only requirement is a valid SSL certificate for your website.

    Thanks Ross,

    they didn't want to have get an SSL and I wasn't able to convince them to, so I'll just have to modify the sample code to collect the details and pass them off to the secure page. Thanks for your help and sorry for the inconvenience!

    No worries, you asked some good questions so I'll be able to add some useful information to the readme; time well spent as far as I'm concerned!

    Good luck, Ross.

    Hi Sam

    Did you end up creating your solution of collecting the details then passing off to eWay's page? Looks like I might need to do the same thing. Still trying to convince client to get an SSL, but so far not looking like it'll happen.

    G'day Ben,

    Can I ask... why do you guys want to use this approach with eWAY, as opposed to either getting SSL and using the Direct Payments API, or just going with PayPal? It might be a silly question, but I need to ask it; all of the clients I've used eWAY on are happy to have an SSL certificate, and those that aren't are happy with PayPal, so I must be missing something.

    My specific case at the moment is this client is not-for-profit and they want a donation form on the site, with one of the options being via credit card. They don't currently have an SSL cert, and so far don't want to get one just for that form/page. They're already setup with eWay as they're selling a few products on a separate Shopify based site. Ideally they'd like to just have this Gravity Form on their site where they collect all the other data they want, then pass on to eWay for credit card info & payment. Still trying to get them to just purchase an SSL and if they do then the plugin as is will be perfect. If not, will have to see what can be done. On the chance they do get it, can I also setup recurring payments on the card with this plugin?

    G'day Ben, thanks for responding. That is a good explanation of why, and a good reason to want it. I might have to reconsider adding support for eWAY's Rapid API at least. But not this week (or next), as end of financial year means everyone wants everything now! :)

    Regarding recurring payments, I haven't had any experience with them so I haven't written anything in the plugin to support them. It's something on my TODO list, however, so expect support in a future version if it doesn't already work.

    cheers,
    Ross

    Hi Ross. Thanks for that. I know the feeling. Same here.
    So, would some funding go any way towards any of that?
    ie do you have time to be contracted for something like that anytime soon?
    : )

    G'day Ben, funding is always welcome :) but I'm stretched for time over the next two weeks. Also, I spoke to eWAY only yesterday (on another matter) and they told me that the Sandbox doesn't yet support their new Rapid API but should within a week or two, which ties in nicely. I reckon that if I add support for any eWAY API that doesn't require SSL, it will be the Rapid API which they are now pushing.

    Maybe check back in a couple of weeks, but if you need something now, I suggest you get them a PayPal account.

    cheers,
    Ross

    Hi there Ben,

    we ended up using an inline form on our page that passed directly to the eWAY Shared Payments page for the credit card details. I have had eWAY check it and they are happy with how it all works, and we are now just waiting for the bank's approval. I can send you a link once it's all finalised, but in the meantime if you have any questions just ask and I'll try and answer as best as possible (talking to eWAY I was getting mixed messages so I had to work most of it out mysself).

    R. Sam
