Commerce iATS 2.0

Last month, we released the 2.0-beta release of the Commerce iATS module, a Drupal module that leverages Drupal Commerce and the iATS Payments PHP Wrapper to add support for payment processing via iATS Payments.

We also promised to deliver ACH/EFT and Direct Debit payment functionality before DrupalCon Austin. It took a few long days, but we’re proud to announce the release of Commerce iATS 2.0.

Commerce iATS 2.0 is packed with new features that allow you to fully take advantage of the services offered by iATS Payments.

New Payment Methods

In addition to supporting credit card payments, Commerce iATS now supports ACH/EFT, meaning your users can now make payments directly from their bank account.

Because iATS Payments supports international payments, we made sure that you can too. Commerce iATS 2.0 fully supports Direct Debit for the UK.

If you’re familiar with Direct Debit, you’ll know that any website offering the service is required to implement a very specific checkout process.

With assistance from iATS Payments, we’ve done all the work for you. Commerce iATS now provides a set of custom checkout panes for the complete Direct Debit checkout process. You don’t even have to worry about the 12-day lead time on initial payments; the module figures it out and gives your users a choice of start dates.

More Options for Recurring Payments

Recurring payments are great for donations, which fits in with iATS Payments’ goal of supporting the needs of nonprofit organizations.

With Drupal Commerce, you always had the option of recurring payments using the Commerce Card on File module, but iATS Payments handles that for you. With Commerce iATS 2.0, you can opt to have iATS Payments bill your customers on a recurring schedule rather than have your Drupal site do all the work.

The Drupal Commerce order stays updated with recurring transactions thanks to iATS Payment’s ReportLink service. Commerce iATS implements a cron task to pull in daily transaction reports from iATS, updating your orders in the process.

In addition to the new features, we took time to make the module more robust. Some of our improvements are:
