Transaction Currency is South African Rand (ZAR).
We use Payfast for secure payments and a smooth checkout and can offer you the following options for payment:
1. 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.

2. Credit Card
We accept Visa and Mastercard credit card payments.
The merchant outlet country at the time of presenting payment options to the cardholder is South Africa.
PayFast is committed to keeping you and your information secure. We have a multitude of checks in place to protect both buyers and sellers from fraudulent transactions.
We use Extended Validation SSL with 256-bit encryption. Only two of the four major South African banks use this, the highest, level of encryption currently available.
3D Secure is in place for all credit card transactions.
All sensitive info is encrypted within our own database.
We run penetration testing on our system on a weekly basis to look for vulnerabilities. We are only required to do it once every three months, but we run it every week.
Our entire site, blog and help site are served off secure servers, making it harder to perpetrate phishing attacks.
We also have an excellent monitoring system that does, among other things: GEO IP tracking, velocity testing, BIN/IIN validation and checks against online databases.
