Collect Online Payments with PayFast & payPod


You can now add a PayFast "Pay Now" button to your invoices and start accepting online payments using a variety of methods, such as Credit Card, Instant EFT and Mobicred.


How to Get Started

Step 1
Sign up & verify your PayFast account.

Note: Sole proprietors and partnerships should create an individual account, only registered companies should create a business account.

Step 2
Visit your My Settings page on payPod and enter your PayFast Merchant ID.

Step 3
Send your invoice & get paid!

More to Come

Premium users will still need to track their payments in payPod manually for the time being, however, we do plan on automating that in the future. Ideally, when your invoice gets paid via PayFast, it should be marked as 'paid' and a payment record added to your payPod account.

More payPod News

This is a follow-up to this announcement where I mentioned plans to develop payPod further, and requested feedback on what people would like to see.
You can now include a "Pay Now" button directly on your invoices that will take users to a secure online payment page with Yoco. Accept online card payments for any Visa or MasterCard cards.Yoco provides both card machines and an online payment gateway with zero monthly fees. You do not need to buy a card machine to use the online payment functionality.
First off, I would like to say "thank you" to all of you who continue to use payPod.
