We’re excited to announce the launch of our Payfast Gateway for Paid Memberships Pro. This new open source plugin will add the South African payment processing service PayFast as a gateway option for Paid Memberships Pro.
PayFast is a South African Payment Processing service for South Africans and South African websites. By using Payfast, merchants can accept funds from local and international customers anywhere in the world using their local currency, the South African Rand (ZAR).
With the increase in demand for this Payment Processor to be supported by us and the gentle nudge by our (growing) team of South Africans, we decided to take the plunge and develop an integration for the PayFast Payment Processor. Now the WordPress community in South Africa can collect payments from their members in their local currency much more easily.
