New integration between Shopify's ecommerce software and Australia's eWAY payments processor provides several benefits for etailers. And yes, etailers is a word now.
Benefits include enterprise-level fraud protection (by detecting suspicious transactions), token payments for easier repeat purchasing (card details are stored securely by eWAY in full compliance with PCI DSS requirements), and a 'PreAuth' feature for reserving funds on a customer's credit card without charging it (useful for special orders, or where the final transaction amount may vary after the order is placed).
Online maternity wear store Glowmama runs on Shopify and reports zero processing errors with eWAY.
"I had been avoiding setting up a payment gateway, due to the amount of mistakes made in the past from other providers. Once I made the choice to go with eWAY it has been the easiest setup process with support from their team every step of the way," said co-founder Amanda Naess.
"Moving to eWAY has actually had a direct impact on sales. Processing refunds is now easier which in turn has reduced the amount of time staff are spending on this task," she added.
More than 19,000 online stores are powered by eWAY. Recent additions include the Australian Red Cross, Acer, UniLodge, Melbourne Fringe Festival, The Athlete’s Foot, Regus Australia Management and WineRun.
