Why am I getting “Merchant_key invalid”?

  • Ensure that live credentials are used for live transactions and test credentials are used for testing in the sandbox.
  • Double check that the one set on your PayFast account matches the one set on your plugin’s configuration page.
  • Check for spaces before and after the merchant key. Insert the merchant key again using copy-paste to ensure that it is correct.
