How Zapper works

Zapper stores credit and cheque card details through secure encryption on a buyer’s phone.


During checkout, the buyer simply selects Zapper as their payment method and scans the QR code displayed on the screen with their smartphone.


Once the payment is processed it will instantly reflect in your PayFast account.
