"What is SecureEFT and is it really safe?"

SecureEFT only requires you to login to your bank account, using your bank's internet banking platform and security, and authenticate the payment, using your bank's one time pin or authentication methodology. Thanks to this two-factor authentication procedure - login and OTP - using SecureEFT is more secure than paying with a credit card.

Don't worry if you've never used SecureEFT before. It's easy! You don't need any banking details or payment information from SA-Venues.com prior to completing your payment as SecureEFT automatically populates the payment details for you. There's no shopper registration required and you can complete your payment in 5 easy steps.

  1. Select the SecureEFT payment method at checkout.

  5. Complete the payment by entering a One-Time PIN received from your bank, or responding to a push message received from your bank (you'll be directed back to the SA-Venues.com website once payment has been completed).

SA-Venues.com will receive instant payment confirmation, so you donít have to fax or email your proof of payment, and your booking can be confirmed immediately. SecureEFT's smooth, automated payment process makes online payment quick, convenient and secure!
