Calculating your fees: Using the table above, calculate the percentage of the total transaction amount. Some payment methods have an additional fixed fee per transaction that has to be added. Our fees are excluding VAT, to calculate your fee including VAT, you’ll need to add 15%.
Here is an example fee calculation based on a R200 credit card transaction:
- R200.00 x 3.5% = R7.00
- R7.00 + R2.00 = R9.00 (excl. VAT)
- R9.00 + 15% = R10.35 (incl. VAT)
The total fee payable on a R200 credit card transaction is R10.35 including VAT.
Payout Fee – R8.70 (excl. VAT)
Each time you request money to be sent from your PayFast account to your bank account, we charge a payout fee of R8.70. This is a flat fee that is not dependent on the amount being paid out.
