Quick, easy and secure payments

PayFast is a secure online payment system for orders placed via telephone or e-mail that previously would have required your customer to provide credit card details in an insecure manner over the phone. It’s simple, secure, and fast:

  1. Once your client has placed a phone or email order, you simply connect to the PayFast administrator interface.
  2. You create a new payment ticket which the system emails to your client.
  3. The client receives an email with a direct link to an SSL-secured page which summarizes the transaction.
  4. The client then clicks through to a secure payment gateway and pays directly with the bank - no credit card information is taken or stored by PayFast or the merchant.
  5. Once the bank gateway validates the card details and the payment clears, noth the client and the merchant receive an email confirmation of the transaction.
