How do I activate the latest PayFast integration for Shopify ?

Our latest integration for Shopify is now available for all merchants. The integration is more secure and follows Shopify’s integration requirements. The checkout process for buyers is the same and nothing changes for either party. The old integration may still be used but Shopify doesn’t allow any updates any more.

The update is quick and easy and won’t affect your store.

Step 1 – Deactivate PayFast

Go to your settings page and select the payments tab, then click on the deactivate button.
