Fanport offers you the following payment methods:
Payment via credit card
Fanport accepts credit card and chipped debit/cheque card payment via Visa and MasterCard only. We make use of the 3D-Secure authentication system to verify cardholder details with your bank; this links you directly to your bank via a secure link. The transaction then takes place within your bank’s secure environment and we won’t have access to any of your card details. You can rest assured that your card details will by no means be available to, or accessible by, us or any third parties. When you return a purchase, the specified amount will be credited back to your bank account after it has been approved. .
EFT (electronic funds transfer)
This payment method requires the customer to transfer money directly from his/her account into Fanport’s account, through computer-based systems.
If you select instant EFT, you will be redirected to our secure payment gateway and asked to select your bank. The details for the EFT payment will then be displayed, along with instructions regarding references etc.
All bank deposit EFT’s require proof of payment to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before your order will be processed. If payment does not reflect for an EFT transaction we may request proof of payment to be sent before your order is processed.
Why should I use the EFT option? EFT is convenient in that it is not time consuming and it’s easy to use. Fanport also creates a safe and trustworthy banking environment for the benefit of the customers and the company
Take note that only South African EFT payments will be accepted and no international bank electronic transfers are accepted.
