Debit cards

In addition to credit and cheque cards, you can also accept debit card payments with PayFast and payD. Debit cards are much more prevalent in South Africa than credit cards and you’ll get access to the millions of buyers without credit cards. Transactions are final and there is no risk of chargeback to the seller.

Supported card-issuing banks:

  • Standard Bank
  • ABSA
  • Nedbank

Supported mobile operators:

  • MTN
  • Vodacom

You can enable/disable payD as payment method on your PayFast account.

For more information on payD, kindly see their website.
