Instant EFT Frequently Asked Questions

Which banks do you support?

Currently we support payments from ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank.

What if I don’t bank with one of the supported banks?

You will unfortunately, not be able to use Instant EFT for the moment, but you can still make use of the Mygate Payment Gateway (credit card required) to pay online or select EFT payment option.

Why doesn’t instant EFT support Capitec payments

The reason why we cannot support Capitec Instant EFT payments is because Capitec does not offer business bank accounts, only personal accounts. Therefore, we cannot open a business bank account to receive payments. Sadly, until Capitec offers business bank accounts there is no way around this.

Do I need to send proof of payment to you

No, you don’t need to send proof of payment to us. PayFast’s system confirms that the actual funds have been transferred so there is no need for further confirmation.

Why is the payment so fast!

PayFast holds bank accounts at ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank. When you pay, you pay into a bank account held at the same bank as your own. Because it’s an internal transfer, the payment takes place instantly and we’re able to positively acknowledge that the funds have reached our account in a matter of seconds!
