About Us

Our mission is to support businesses in South Africa

PayFast is a leading online payment processing solution for individuals, NPOs and businesses of all sizes in South Africa. We are dedicated to enabling the easy, secure and instant transfer of money to online merchants to help them grow, develop and succeed in the digital economy.

Our business model is based on the success of our merchants – we only charge a small fee for every payment successfully processed; we have no setup, monthly or hidden fees.

How we facilitate online payments for any business

We support 9+ popular payment methods and integrate with 80+ platforms and custom integrations. So no matter what platform you use, PayFast will enable you to get paid online.

After you sign up for a free account and get verified, you can start receiving payments instantly via your website or email. No merchant bank account is required because we process the funds in our bank accounts and then payout to your bank account upon request.
