What is encryption and how does it work?

Put simply, encryption changes data so that it becomes completely unreadable to anyone other than the intended recipient.

Now for the technical bit!

  1. When you establish a secure connection, the downloaded web site sends a digital certificate to your web browser.
  2. When the certificate arrives, it contains a public key, which functions as a one-way encryption device.
  3. The browser then uses this key to scramble your personal data (credit card Information) before sending it over the Internet.

All credit card details are encrypted using Thawte 256bit SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) Software. Information encrypted with the public key cannot be decrypted without the corresponding private key, which only the merchant has.

Without this exclusive, private key, your personal information cannot be read.

Do you check for fraudulent credit/debit cards?

When doing a secure transaction online, an on-line check of your credit/debit card is made. This process ensures the card number you entered actually corresponds to a real card number and is not a bogus card.

The PayFast system also checks various "Hot Card lists" to ensure that no fraudulent use is being made of any credit/debit card. This on-line verification of your details is carried out over a secure line to the bank. credit/debit card data is never sent over the Internet using the validation process.

We also carry out random security checks on cards to ensure we help prevent fraud - please note that we do not intend any discourtesy if your card is chosen for a random check. We reserve the right to withhold any order from despatch in order to process further security checks. This can delay an order for up to 36 hours.

Where can I find my credit/debit card security number CVV?

Your credit/debit card security number is a 3 digit number which can be found on the far right side of the signature strip on the back of your card. This 3 digit number is unique to your card, and gives you extra protection against fraud.

Note: with American Express cards, the card security number is 4 digits long and is printed on the front of the card.
