WooCommerce Payment Gateways for South Africa - A Guideline

Looking for the best payment gateways in South Africa? We're here to help!

When selecting a payment gateway, businesses should consider the following questions:

Most South African payment gateways accept Visa & Mastercard.

If you want to be able to process Instant EFT, you need to make sure that the payment gateway that you select can offer that.

WooCommerce allows for standard EFT without a payment gateway out of the box.

If you want to be able to offer BNPL (Buy Now Pay Later) options, you need to select a specialist payment provider that offers that service (see our recommendations below). BNPL helps customers to afford higher ticket items and to pay it off, usually interest free. Merchants get paid immediately* less transaction fees. *payout terms may differ between service providers
