Paypal Payflow Link extension for integrating CubeCart with Payflow Link. Tested in CubeCart v6, but it may possibly work in other versions with some minor modifications to change the version support in the config.xml file (untested, use at your own risk).

Note that this plugin is not compatible with Payflow Pro, or any other Paypal facility like Paypal Standard, Paypal Pro, Paypal Website Payments Pro, etc.  It is only for Payflow Link (formerly Verisign Payflow Link). Payflow Link service description


Version 1.0.1 update:

Contains fixes discovered in the original version, where failed credit card transactions were not updating the status to DECLINED in Cubecart.

Also added Payflow URL to admin GUI, rather than hard coding it into the module, in case it changes in the future ( at the time of this posting).



Auto Install/Upgrade

Click the thunderbolt () icon next to the package you wish to use for instructions.


In Paypal Payflow Manager ( under SERVICE SETTINGS - PAYFLOW LINK - CONFIGURATION), set the Return URL Method to POST and set the Return URL and Failed Silent Post Return URL fields to the following, (using the full URL to this link):


Use either HTTP or HTTPS, depending on what your store is using. For example:

Set the "Silent Post URL" field to (using the full URL to this link):


For example:


Clear the "Force Silent Post Confirmation" check box(unchecked), and save the configuration of Payflow Link.


On the Cubecart store admin page, go to Manage Plugins and edit the properties of the Payflow plugin to include your merchant details.  These are the same as you use to log in to the Payflow Manager website. The Payflow URL should be set to (correct as at the time of this posting but check the Payflow user guide if in doubt).
