Payment Methods

We currently offer the following online payment methods via our service provider PayFast. PayPal is coming soon!!

PayFast is a payments processing service for South Africans and South African websites. More information is available HERE.

Instant EFT

Instant EFT is PayFast’s patented, revolutionary method of completing online purchases by making an internet banking transfer (EFT) which gets instantly verified. There is no two day wait, you don’t need to send in proof of payment and it can be used with South Africa’s four biggest banks: ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank.

What is Instant EFT?

It is an electronic funds transfer (EFT), a transfer from a shopper’s bank account to ours, that instantly gets confirmed. The funds are paid to the seller’s bank account upon request of Payout.

What banks are supported?

Currently we can process Instant EFT when shoppers have accounts with South Africa’s four major banks: ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank.

Does the shopper need any special software?

No. Unlike other systems, the buyer doesn’t need to install any special software. Transactions can be made on PCs, Macs and most mobile devices (such as Blackberry, iPhone, iPad, Android etc.)

Does the shopper need to send proof of payment to verify the transfer?

No. Neither the shopper, nor the merchant would need to confirm the transfer. PayFast’s system confirms that the actual amount has been transferred, so there’s no need for calls, faxes or emails.

Credit & Cheque cards

Credit cards are one of the most widely used online payment methods and allows sellers to accept both local and international payments. Did you know that Gold and Platinum cheque cards can be used to make payments just like credit cards? This allows buyers to make use of available funds as opposed to buying on credit with a credit card.
