Join us at the PayFast eCommerce Virtual Summit

We have teamed up with South Africa’s leading ecommerce expert, Warrick Kernes from the Insaka eCommerce Academy, to bring you the PayFast eCommerce Virtual Summit. The free event, which will take place online from 25 to 28 May 2020, will include presentations from global ecommerce experts and business leaders on how to achieve more success through selling online in South Africa.   

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the world at large has had to drastically adapt to cater for the new self-isolation measures that governments have enforced in an attempt to prevent the spread of the disease. As a result of this, the world has been forced to quickly adopt technology with the popularity of ecommerce skyrocketing. At PayFast, we’ve recorded a 150% increase of new business account registrations since the lockdown started, compared to the same period in 2019.

If you have been contemplating launching an online store, then now is the time to do it. And if you have experience with selling online, then we want to help you fast track your success and get ahead of the competition. 

Join the PayFast eCommerce Virtual Summit to hear valuable insights from experts at Takealot, Google, Bid or Buy, Game and the University of Cape Town (UCT) on what you can do to succeed in ecommerce. You’ll also hear first-hand experience of growing successful ecommerce businesses from the founders of companies like PayFast, uAfrica, Insaka, Mobicred, Parcel Ninja, Zapper, UCook, Yuppiechef, Netflorist, Pargo, PriceCheck and many more.

Book your place by visiting the official PayFast eCommerce Virtual Summit website, where you can also view the full list of speakers and summit agenda. By taking part in the event, you will stand a chance to win R10k worth of lucky prize giveaways. This is the virtual ecommerce event of the year that’s not to be missed.
