About PayWay Connect

PayWay Connect allows you to automate the daily download of receipts files.

Receipts files contain a list of payments collected. PayWay can create receipts files suitable for upload into various accounting packages.


  • Save effort - no need to login to PayWay each day to download files
  • Faster account reconciliation - your accounting system can update overnight
  • Easy to setup - instantly add the PayWay Connect module online and follow our step by step tutorial.

There are no additional PayWay fees for this module.

How it works

  1. You add the PayWay Connect module and choose one of the PayWay receipts file formats
  2. Each day, PayWay creates a receipts file listing payments you received
  3. Your server downloads the file from PayWay.

Depending on your accounting software, you may then be able to import the file automatically.

Add PayWay Connect

To add the PayWay Connect module:

  1. Sign in to PayWay
  2. Click Add Modules in the menu
  3. Click PayWay Connect
  4. Agree to terms and conditions and click Confirm.
