Create a Chargent Order in Salesforce to run test transactions

  1. Click on the App Launcher in the top left side and select Chargent as the App.

  2. eWay Launcher

In your eWAY Sandbox account click on the Home tab.

Understanding the Response

If you receive any errors from eWAY, or for more information about the eWAY responses that are saved in the Chargent Transaction record in Salesforce, please see the eWAY Response Codes.

All the data in the Chargent Transaction record in Salesforce comes from eWAY (except for the Transaction name, beginning with TRX-000XXX, which is autogenerated). For more information please see the documentation on Chargent Transactions.

eWay Transaction Response

Complete any additional Salesforce configuration your organization requires

Once you are generating responses from eWAY and seeing the transaction records, you may wish to finalize other Salesforce configuration items, such as:

  • Email receipts from Salesforce and/or eWAY
  • Automated processes in Salesforce driven by transactions
  • Reporting
  • Other requirements of your organization

Sending Live Transactions from a Salesforce Sandbox

When Chargent is installed in a Salesforce Sandbox, transactions are always sent to the payment gateway's test / sandbox / development environment, regardless of whether Chargent's Test Endpoint checkbox is checked. This is done as a security precaution, to prevent real transactions from being accidentally sent from a Salesforce Sandbox.

When Chargent is installed in a production or developer Salesforce org, the Test Endpoint checkbox on the Gateway record will select between sending to the payment gateway's live and test environments.

If you wish to send live transactions from a Salesforce Sandbox, as a final step in testing, simply use Chargent's Endpoint Override field on the Gateway record, and enter the production endpoint of your chosen gateway there.

Here is the production endpoint URL for Chargent's integration with eWAY:

Note that the full endpoint URL must be entered in the Endpoint Override field, and the domain must be present in the Remote Site Settings (for standard Chargent integrations it should be already present).

Going Live with eWAY in Salesforce

Now that you have tested the connection from Salesforce to eWAY, and completed any related configuration steps, you are ready to move into the production phase with Chargent and eWAY.

Go to the eWAY Sandbox gateway record you created earlier, and uncheck the Active field, or delete the record entirely if you choose.

Obtain your Live eWAY API Key and Password

  • Log into your MyeWAY account
  • Hover over the My Account tab at the top of the page, then click Get Connected.
  • Your API Key is already generated and available in the API Key field at the top of the page. You can simply click the Copy To Clipboard button to copy the API Key ready to be pasted into the Chargent Gateway record.
  • To get a password, click Generate Password. A password can only be viewed once after it has been generated, so be sure to copy it (you can use the same Copy To Clipboard button to copy it).

If you previously generated an API Key and Password through the 'User Security' section you can manage as follows:

  • Click on My Account and then go to User Security > Manage Roles
  • Enter a Role Name (such as "API Key") and click Create New Role
  • Go Back to My Account > User Security > Manage Roles
  • Click on Security Role to assign the security role API KEY to the user you will create.
  • Complete all the required fields, including an email address that is NOT the login for MYeWAY, then click Create User
  • Select Actions on the left side of the new user
  • Click View API Key to see and copy the API key to use in Chargent
  • Be sure to use the Rapid API Key and NOT the Pay Now key.

eWay MyeWay

Add the Live Gateway record for eWAY in Salesforce based on either the Gateway Setup Wizard or version 5.40 or earlier instructions above.

Testing the Live eWAY Gateway

We recommend testing at least one real transaction to ensure everything is working correctly in Salesforce, and your merchant account is set up with your bank properly.

You can run a small transaction on your own credit card, and then Void it from the transaction record in Salesforce.

Please note that extensive testing is recommended for the eWAY Sandbox only, as transaction fees may be incurred in the Live environment.

eWAY Order Source

eWay requires the Salesforce field Order Source to be set in order to process one time charges, or recurring billing using tokenization. For eWAY payments from Chargent, the Order Source field should be set to Telephone. This will send the transaction to eWAY as MOTO, which will allow the token and card information to be stored in eWAY. This allows the token to be used in place of the credit card.

eWAY Token Payments

Chargent supports eWAY Token Payments, which allows you to securely store your customer's account number and other cardholder data with eWAY, and use an associated token in Salesforce for future payments.

PCI compliance scope is reduced since you are not storing the credit card numbers in Salesforce.

You can enable eWAY Token Payments manually if you didn’t already select that option when you initially set up your eWAY gateway.

  1. Go to the App Launcher and search for the Gateway Object.

  2. Select the Gateway Object and the eWAY gateway.

  3. Click Edit and set the following.

    • Check the Use Tokenization checkbox in the Chargent Gateway record you have set up for eWAY

    • Set the Credit Card Handling field (unless you are using Payment Console)

      • Never Clear: Chargent will not remove any card data automatically.
      • Clear After Successful Charge: Chargent will clear the credit card number, expiration dates and card security code only after a successful charge is run.
      • Clear After All Transactions: The credit card number, expiration date and card security code will be erased after any transaction (Charge, Void, Refund)
      • Clear When Token Present (Recommended): Only when a token is present in the token field, will the credit card number, expiration date and card security code be cleared.

The eWAY token is stored in Chargent's Token field in Salesforce after your first successful transaction, and the credit card fields are handled as you specified in the preceding step.

Note that if you are using Chargent’s API, Payment Console or Payment Request, credit cards are never saved to Salesforce but are instead tokenized in memory.

Salesforce to eWAY Field Mapping

Here are some relevant fields and their mappings between the Chargent software in Salesforce and the eWAY system.

Salesforce Direction eWAY
Gateway ID < Transaction Number
Invoice Number > Invoice Reference
Order Information > Invoice Description
Salesforce record ID (of Chargent Order, Opportunity, or Case) > Your Reference Number

Congratulations! You have successfully integrated Salesforce and the eWAY Payment Gateway using Chargent. You can now process one-time or recurring credit card payments through eWAY directly from Salesforce.
