In WooCommerce, why are orders on in “Pending Payment” when they are paid on PayFast?

On your PayFast WooCommerce settings, at the bottom, there is a checkbox for logging, please ensure this is checked.

If you have access to your host server of your website, you will find the logs files for PayFast in the following folder path: /public_html/wp-content/uploads/wc-logs/

You will see a log per day for PayFast and can investigate on a day-by-day, case-by-case basis.

If your logging was not enabled when your transactions occurred, please enable and perform a test checkout in sandbox mode to ensure that logging is working.
