The Payfort payment gateway is a reliable payment processor that is widely used in the Middle East countries. Magedelight provides ecommerce businesses with the solution allowing to extend payment options on a web store and ensure secure transactions – Payfort Payment Gateway for Magento 2. After implementing the Payfort payment method on your store, you will provide your customers with faster payment processing and the possibility to manage and control their credit cards details.
Below, we shed light on the Magento 2 module’s functionality from the admin and customer points of view.
The Payfort Payment Gateway extension for Magento 2 brings the following features to its users:
- Enhanced security with CVV card verification
When a customer makes the checkout on your store, it is required to type in a CVV number. This function provides extra security of customers’ payment data and prevents possible fraudulent activity.
- 3D secure verification
The Payfort platform provides an additional security layer via 3D secure verification. This way, merchants can verify a customer identity by redirecting shoppers to the page where they need to insert an OTP sent via mobile phone before making a payment.
- iFrame support
iFrame used by the Magento 2 extension allows processing customers’ data on the Payfort server without storing sensitive information on a merchant’s server. With the payment tokenization provided by the Payfort gateway, customers’ credit card data is highly protected from any frauds.
- Various types of credit cards
The module supports multiple credit card types so that online shoppers can choose the most suitable option at the checkout. Magento admins define the available credit card types in the backend.
- Possibility to save used credit cards in the customer account
When entering credit card details, a customer can save them for future usage. Thus, next purchases can be made faster since the need to provide payment data every time a customer shops on an online store is eliminated.
- Secure vault for credit cards in a customer account
Customers get access to all saved credit cards in a dedicated tab in their account area, where they can manage their cards. The Stored Payment Methods tab allows editing and deleting existing cards and add new ones.
- Partial invoices
With the Payfort Payment Gateway extension, admin users can create partial invoices for the items purchased using the Payfort method. Thus, store owners get the possibility to split an order by generating multiple invoices per order.
- Partial refunds
Furthermore, the Magento 2 module supports online credit memos for partial refunds.
- Order placement on behalf of a customer
Another opportunity provided by Payfort Payment Gateway for Magento 2 is placing orders on behalf of customers from the Magento Admin. This way, store owners can create orders on a customer request. When admins place orders in the backend, they can use customers’ saved cards, as well as add and save a new card. For increased security of credit card data, admins are required to enter a CVV code to place an order.
- PCI compliance
Since the Magento Payfort payment extension is fully PCI compliant, it doesn’t store any sensitive data on a merchant’s server and helps prevent fraud risks.
To start using Payfort payment gateway on your web store, first, enable it on the Configuration page. Then, activate the vault functionality to allow customers to store their credit cards data on the Payfort server and create a title for the Payfort payment method.

Values in Hash Algorithm, Request SHA phrase, and Response SHA phase should be equal in both Magento and Payfort merchant configuration. By Selecting Yes in the Test Mode setting, you can check how the extension works in the development environment. Next, select a payment action (Authorize or Authorize and Capture), enable/disable debug mode, choose a new order status (Processing or Suspected Fraud), and specify the sort order.
