All payments are handled through PayFast - South Africa's safest payment gateway. PayFast offers the following security measures:
- We use Extended Validation SSL with 2048-bit encryption. Only two of the four major South African banks use this –the highest– level of encryption currently available.
- 3D Secure is in place for all credit card transactions.
- All sensitive info is encrypted within our own database.
- We run penetration testing on our system on a weekly basis to look for vulnerabilities. We are only required to do it once every three months, but we run it every week. Our entire site, blog, payments page and help site all are served off secure servers, making it harder to perpetrate phishing attacks.
