PAYFAST

The PayFast Payment Gateway has been incorporated into the EDUVISA Online Learner Management System to accommodate financial transactions in the South African Rand (ZAR) currency including Credit/Check Cards, Instant EFT Transfers (ABSA, Capitec, First National Bank, Nedbank, Standard Bank), ATM Debit Cards (Visa Electron/Maestro), Zapper Scan, MasterPass and SCODE (offline cash payments at 6000+ retail stores including Checkers, Shoprite, OK, Post Office and House & Home). PayFast is also a PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant, utilises 3D Secure for all credit card transactions and incorporates GEO IP tracking of all transactions. PayFast specifically caters for the Southern Africa business sector and for secure online transactions conducted in the South African Rand.

To make use of a SCode Payment at any of the mentioned stores, the student will need to present a SCode (Barcode or SMS) which can be obtained from the PayFast Payment Gateway during the registration process. When registering for a new course the student is required to click on the PayFast Button after which he/she will select the SCode Button which will request the submission of the student's email address or cellphone number. The PayFast Payment Gateway will automatically issue a SCode via email or SMS which needs to be presented during payment at any of the participating stores. As soon as the payment has been verified the student will be activated to commence with the academic process.

Learners/students will be automatically directed to these payment gateways during the online registration process via the EDUVISA Programme Catalogue.
