Payment

We are committed to providing secure online payment facilities. All transactions are encrypted using appropriate encryption technology.  We currently use PayFast as a payment method. PayFast is a payment processing service for South African websites.  It enables easy, secure, and instant transfer of money from online buyers.  It accepts secure payments in a variety of ways including credit cards, debit cards, and Instant EFT.  For more information on the security features available visit PayFast.

Snapscan is also integrated as a payment method.  This is a mobile payment solution that makes it easy and safe to pay and receive payments in a store, online, at home, and on the go. No need for cards or cash – just simple payments in a snap using a QR code system. To learn more and download the app visit Snapscan.

Purchases will only be shipped when confirmation of payment clearance is received.  This usually takes 48 hours.  Please note that if we do not receive a payment within 48 hours or any communication regarding payment within that time, we will cancel the sale.

If payment fails due to the account not existing, insufficient funds, the credit card number or other information being incorrect, etc. the purchase will not be successful. The above is dependent on the product being available.
