What is SCode Payment? (Better alternative to Bank Cash Deposit)

SCode is a unique payment platform that allows you to pay for your online purchases in person at over 6,000 South African retailers. What’s more, you can pay using their credit, cheque or debit card, and even cash!

SCode is an optional payment method, you can use it when you select PayFast as a payment method during checkout. You see it in the list of payment methods on PayFast dashboard.

It’s important to note the following:

  • After you have selected to pay using SCode, you will receive an email or SMS that has to be presented at one of the participating retail stores. This email or SMS is only valid for 7 days.

  • If you received an SMS, the cashier will simply input the 16-digit code received on SMS.

  • If you received an email, the cashier will scan the emailed barcode if it has been printed. Barcodes shown to cashiers on mobile devices will require the cashier to manually input the 16-digit barcode number.

Once payment has been made at the cashier, your order will then be officially created on your zasttra account.
