4. Cancel page

This page is where buyers are redirected to if they cancel the payment transaction at any stage. It is defined by the cancel_url field that is set on the shopping cart or client confirm page prior to be redirected to the PayFast payment engine.

If you are saving the user’s purchase information prior to being redirected, it is common practice to present that information to the buyer on this page to encourage them to complete the transaction or continue shopping. Many eCommerce solutions set the cancel_url field to the same page as the shopping cart page to get the buyer to retry (or reconsider) paying.
