About This Recipe
Payments are an essential part of e-commerce - if you're receiving payments then you need a payment gateway of some sort to do so effectively. PayFast is a payments processing service for merchants in South Africa that makes it safer for buyers to send money and easier for sellers to receive money online. PayFast provides access to payment methods like credit and debit cards, Instant EFT, Masterpass, S Code and Mobicred. Byron Clarence, PayFast's Business Development lead, explains how the platform works.
What You'll Learn

In addition to the platform you choose to sell your product or service on and your product or service itself, how you receive payments for what you’re selling is vital if you want to receive payments at all.
