The plugin is installed normal way using Joomla extensions manager.

This plugin comes free with the subscription of the extension.
You'll find it installed (you may need to enable it manually) after extension's installation, alternatively it's available in downloads section (available for active subscribers).

Install the plugin like any other Joomla extension.


After installation, you need to set up the plugin.

  • Open Extensions and then choose Plugins
  • Find the DJ-Classifieds PayFast payment plugin on the list
  • Open DJ-Classifieds PayFast payment plugin
    • Test Mode - Yes/No - set whether you want to test or use in a live environment
    • Merchant ID - Your merchant's ID
    • Merchant Key - Your merchant's Key
    • Salt passphrase - The passphrase is an optional/ extra security feature, made up of a maximum of 32 characters, which is set by the Merchant in the Settings section of their PayFast Dashboard.
    • Return URL - This page on your site is where the buyer is redirected to, from PayFast, after successful payment. A plain HTML page thanking the buyer for their purchase (and maybe mentioning the delivery procedure) is usually the norm
    • Cancel URL- This page (on your site) is where the buyer is redirected from PayFast if they cancel their payment. A good practice is to set this to a page which will allow the buyer to try and purchase again.
    • Currency Code
