POS: Online Payments

Sending a Payment Request

Use Payment Request to accept payments online from your customers, even if you don’t have a website. 

Payment Request is available on the latest version of the Yoco app - version 3.8. You can read about how to check your app version, and update it on Android or on iOS.  

How does it work?

Share a Payment Request directly from your Yoco App when you need to accept payments. When making a sale, enter an amount and select 'Payment Request' as your payment method. You can then share that link via Email, SMS or WhatsApp – like an online invoice. 
Your customer clicks the link, and pays the amount specified using their card details on your secure Payment Page. We use 3D Secure authentication – this means that your customer will receive a ‘One Time PIN’ from their bank as part of the payment process.
You get an email notification every time a customer pays, and you can see a record of all payments made on your Sales History.

What are the fees?

Online payments are usually more expensive than in-person payments. But until 1 September 2020, you'll be charged the same fees for online payments as your current card machine fees. As of 01/09/2020, the transaction fees for online payments will be 0.5% higher than card machine payments which start at 2.95%.

How do I get paid?

All online payments are linked to your existing Yoco Account and money will be paid out within 2 business days as part of your usual payouts.

What cards are accepted currently?

All VISA and MasterCard cards that are 3D Secure enabled are accepted, including international cards. AMEX and Diners are not currently supported. All payments are made in ZAR. 

How do I start using my Payment Request?

Log in to your Yoco App, and make a sale!
