Set up eWAY as a payment service in Xero

Accept online payments for your invoices using eWAY. To set this up, add eWAY as a payment service, then apply to a branding theme. You can set up eWAY to either deduct transaction fees from invoice payments, or to on-charge fees to your customers.

Set up eWAY to deduct fees from invoice payments

  1. In the Settings menu, select General Settings.
  2. Under Connect, click Payment Services.
  3. Click Add Payment Service.
  4. Select eWAY.
  5. Complete these fields:

    • Name

      Enter a name as you'd like it to appear in Xero.

      If using multiple currencies, include the currency in the name for each eWAY account you set up in Xero.

    • API key

      Enter the API key for your eWAY account.

    • Password

    • Credit card logos to appear on your invoice

      Select the credit card logos to display on your invoice. The logos that can be displayed will depend on what is supported by eWAY. VISA and MasterCard have been selected for you by default.
