PayFast is one of the most popular gateways in South Africa. It’s an off-site gateway that allows donors to give securely and then be returned to your website and displayed a donation receipt.
Getting Started with PayFast
In order to accept payments with PayFast using Give you will need to have an active PayFast account, the PayFast Give add-on, and the Give Core plugin installed and activated.
Click here for instructions on installing and activating Give add-ons.
Note: You can always access your add-on purchase receipts, downloads, and licenses from your Give Account dashboard.
After the PayFast add-on is activated, go to “Donations > Settings” and click on the Payment Gateways tab. There you will see the default Payment Gateways (PayPal Standard, Test Payment, and Offline Donations). You should also see PayFast as an option as well.
