The PayFast payment gateway supports using the South Africa PayFast payment gateway, which uses a quick and simple payment wallet to sign-up and manage purchases. It accepts credit cards including Visa and Mastercard, or PayFast’s own payment method which lets you pay via regular Internet backing without having to wait 2 days for funds to clear. When a customer chooses PayFast to complete a transaction, they’ll be redirected to your PayFast merchant account for them to log in and make payment before being redirected back to your store. If you’ve signed up for PayFast, you’ll just need to set your base country to “South Africa” and your currency to “South African Rand” for the option to become available.

    Not as fast as the name says. Takes 96 hours from payment to cash in bank.
