What is i-Pay?

i-Pay is an automated electronic funds transfer (EFT) payment processor that allows for electronic funds to be transferred directly into a seller’s bank account, in real-time. Currently iPay can process an Instant EFT when shoppers have accounts with South Africa’s six major banks in South Africa: ABSA, FNB, Nedbank, Standard Bank, Capitec and Investec.


How it works:


  1. Select i-Pay as your payment option during checkout.
  2. Select your bank from the list presented.
  3. Login using your internet banking credentials.
  4. Select an account to pay from.
  5. The automated process will navigate and populate the relevant fields on your behalf in the background.
  6. Your bank will send you an OTP (one-time password) or mobile authentication to your mobile phone to verify the payment.
  7. Once you have successfully authorised your payment, the transaction is marked as complete.
  8. Pay sends a notification to the seller on the outcome of the transaction and in turn, the seller will process your order immediately. There is no need to send through a proof of payment and no need to wait for the funds to reflect in the seller’s bank account.
  9. You will then be redirected back the the sellers website and a confirmation of the sale will be completed
