Introducing the PayFast Dashboard

We received great feedback about our redesigned site, which went online at the start of the month. It has all the familiar functions that sellers had access to before, but the new layout makes getting (and using) some of these tools a little easier. The PayFast Dashboard (image below) will appear for those with accounts that can accept payments, those who can only make payments can always upgrade their accounts once logged in.

When you log into your PayFast account, you’ll automatically be taken to the Dashboard screen. This page has some of the basic functions you might want to access more frequently than others. At the top it will show your name and balance, with some important announcements and messages (if relevant). It also displays your most recent transactions, which are sortable by name, date, amount etc., your recent login history and the payment types that you accept.

You can generate Pay Now buttons (which you can embed in a website or blog) or generate an email request for payment with the Request Money feature –  right on the dashboard.

Lastly, if you have funds available in your PayFast account, you can request a Payout directly from the dashboard and send the money to your South African bank account with a few clicks.
