  4. Place a checkmark next to the Redirect to merchant website option:

Redirect After Payment Processing

  1. Click Save Settings.
Make sure that you’ve followed the 11-14 steps from the setup instruction. If you leave the Redirect to merchant website option unticked, some paid orders may appear as unfinished orders in Ecwid control panel → My Sales → Abandoned Carts. This can happen if buyers don't click “Finalise Transaction” after payment (this button redirects payers back to online store and prompts eWay to notify your store about paid finalised orders). To prevent it from happening, make sure to tick the Redirect to merchant website option.

eWAY Rapid and your currency

Please make sure that your Store currency is the same as the currency in the eWAY merchant account. Otherwise, your customers may get errors when trying to pay via eWAY Rapid.

How can I make a test payment?
