Important Notes about Payfast:
Payfast does not support authorizations. It only supports charges. So for security deposits, it is processed as a charge and then when it's to be released it's handled as a refund
Refunds can take up to 7 to 10 business days
The refund will come directly out of your PayFast wallet, so refunds can only be processed if you have sufficient funds available.
For more details about refunds please click here
Contact Payfast and ask them to set up (i.e. whitelist) your account for us to retrieve masked card details along with the expiry date.
Due to the requirements of Payfast and some issuing banks, ChargeAutomation does a charge of 5 Rand when guests enter their cards to increase the rate of successful transactions.
We have 24/7 support. Please be sure to use the chat and someone will attend to your question.
