Payfast is a South African payment gateway for 3D verified credit cards from anywhere in the world. They enable easy, secure and instant transfer of money between online buyers and sellers.
We have decided to make use of their gateway in order to process payments for the ART3.
There might be some issues with making a payment.
PayFast only accept payments from Visa and Mastercard.
They also have a very secure credit card checkout process in order to prevent credit card fraud. Your credit card must be enabled to make international payments. This gets done through something called 3D verification.
3D Secure is a technical standard created by Visa and MasterCard to further secure CNP (Card-holder Not Present) transactions over the Internet.
MasterCard brands their system as ‘MasterCard SecureCode’ and Visa call theirs ‘Verified by Visa’.
3D Secure protects a buyer’s credit card against unauthorised use when shopping online. This simple service enables buyers to validate transactions you make over the internet by requesting a personal code (usually sent to your cell phone or email address as a one time PIN). It helps protect against fraudulent use by unauthorised individuals.
