100,000 Registered PayFast Users!

We’re all pretty excited about 2012 here at PayFast – and the year has only just begun! This week we reached a pretty significant company milestone: we are happy to say that we now have more than 100,000 successful PayFast registrations!



Considering we’ve only been in operation for less than 5 years and that online shopping is yet to really take off in South Africa, we think this is really a great accomplishment. We even made a little graph, above, to show how things are taking off.

We also have some pretty interesting findings about the types of transactions we processed. Below is a visual breakdown, (note that our patented Instant EFT handled at about half of all our transactions with the four major SA banks) of 2011:

We’ve got a lot of exciting things in the pipeline for 2012: site & interface redesign, improved online support, extra payment methods and a whole score of other things (which we’ll keep under wraps for now – we can’t let it all out in one go, now can we?) :)

Stay connected to find out more about things as they roll out, and a sincere thanks for your support!
