In order to use PayFast with CubeCart, you will need to install the PayFast payment module for CubeCart which is provided by PayFast.

Installation requirements

  • A working CubeCart installation
  • PHP cURL extension
    • Ask your host if you are not sure if this is available

To install the PayFast Website Payments payment module, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Download the v5 payment module from our site.
  2. Unzip the module to a temporary location on your computer.
  3. Copy and paste the files into your CubeCart installation as they were extracted.
  4. Log in to the CubeCart admin console.
  5. Navigate to Plugins > Manage Plugins.
  6. Click ‘PayFast’ (or on the ‘Edit’ logo next to PayFast).
  7. Change values in form:
