All requests to eWAY’s Rapid API need to be authenticated using basic authentication. This uses the eWAY API Key and Password in the username and password fields respectively.
This authentication is sent in the HTTP header, most frameworks and libraries provide a way to set these. The eWAY SDKs accept the API key & password along with the endpoint (
production) when they are initialised.

4. Your Rapid API Key will be displayed in the API Key field
