Frequently asked questions
I am nervous about shopping with my credit card online. How safe is it?
There is no need to be concerned about using your credit card online. It is very safe. The system we use is called PayFast. This is one of two secure online credit card platforms that have been approved by all banks. PayFast has a watertight level of security and operates behind an SSL (secure socket layer) Certificate. All your details entered on the payment page are encrypted and cannot be seen by anyone. Credit card details are completely confidential and safe. PayFast is fully PCI-Compliant which means they have gone through rigorous testing and certification to ensure information is not prone to attacks or theft.
Is there any other way to make payment besides using a credit card?
The easiest and most efficient way is to pay with your credit card as your payment will reflect in our account immediately and we can process your order instantly. However, we also have an internet banking option available. This means you can pay via EFT and email proof of payment to email@example.com The only drawback is that we have to wait until the payment reflects and, depending on who you bank with, this can take up to 3 days and only then we will be able to fill the order
