“I consider Payfast’s Payment Request feature to be a safe and easy way for clients to make their payments via their preferred payment method. It’s also an easy way for me to keep track of incoming payments because it’s much more convenient than asking every client to do an EFT and requiring them to send through their proof of payment”
