Afterpay Token Generation Failure

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new here and don't know a lot about web development or codes.

I've installed the Afterpay module and it has uploaded fine except when I go through the purchase process.

When I click Afterpay as the payment, this appears on the screen "Afterpay Token Generation Failure. Please contact Website Administrator".

I downloaded the module from an Afterpay merchant and I've contacted them and they have sent me some troubleshooting options;

  1. The file in question is afterpay/controllers/front/validation.php - Line number 79
  2. Line 80 handles the Order Token Creation
  3. If unsuccessful, line 90 displays the error that Creating My life 4 Me is currently experiencing.


As it is a live instance, Afterpay support is limited due to security and privacy concerns. As the SAT was successful, the recommendation is to confirm parity with the development instance.

I do not know what I'm supposed to change to correct this. I've also attached a screenshot of the suggested lines that may contain the error from the recommended file. 

Can someone please help me? Thank you in advance.

Hi Renee!

Did you ever come across a solution to your issue? We're experiencing the same problems, however, they occur intermittently. So we're a bit unsure why some orders are going through and others aren't.

Would love to hear how you went!

Hi Tania,

Sounds odd but it turns out there was an error with a picture I had uploaded on my website.

The photo was corrupt and took longer to upload than the others, I didn’t think anything of it at the time but had a developer look at it and that’s the only problem they found.

Once I deleted the photo Afterpay started working properly.

Hope this helps.
