PayFast launches Split Payments

It’s important for us to remain pioneers in the payments industry by providing you with the best cutting-edge capabilities. This is why we are proud to announce the launch of Split Payments – a first of its kind in South Africa.

Setting your business up for success in the digital economy

Gone are the days when businesses can rely solely on selling products or services on their own website to a niche market. Platform economies have seen tremendous growth in size and reputation over the last few years, due to the immense value they provide in digitally matchmaking various parties. Platforms help merchants find buyers, while simultaneously helping buyers find the products or services they are looking for, or should be looking for, with a quick search. It’s a win-win situation.

Split Payments complements this exciting digital marketplace ecosystem. It is a solution designed to cater for a variety of business models that require the instant allocation of an online payment to a third party. Whether you run a digital marketplace that brings together multiple sellers or you’re a vendor selling on one, with Split Payments you can instantly split out commission, membership or listing fees when a payment is made via one of our supported payment methods
