Import and Customs Duties:

Payment may be made via Visa or Mastercard credit cards or by bank transfer into the Provider’s bank account via the PayFast payment service. From a PayFast merchant’s site, the User selects PayFast as the payment option. The User chooses how they wish to pay, makes the payment and the User is directed back to the Provider’s site. As the User there is no charge for using PayFast. PayFast is 3D Secure which stands for Three Domain Secure – the payment industry’s internet authentication standard which has been developed by the major card associations. Visa has called their version of the scheme ‘Verified by Visa’ and Mastercard have called their equivalent ‘MasterCard SecureCode’. 3D secure authentication requires the cardholder to register their card to take advantage of this service. This is a one time process which takes place on the card issuer’s website and involves the cardholder answering several security questions to which only the card issuer and cardholder will know the answer. The cardholder selects a password and agrees on a secret phrase, which will be used by the card issuer during each online transaction. See www.payfast.co.za for further information.
Merchant Outlet country and transaction currency:
The merchant outlet country at the time of presenting payment options to the cardholder is South Africa. The transaction currency is South African Rand (ZAR)
