ZapsOnline recognizes that security is one of the major concerns for the shopper during an online transaction. So we use a payment gateway that uses state of the art security tools and techniques to ensure that you are protected against online fraud. Look for the secure symbol in the address bar of your browser for peace of mind


In reality, an online purchase is probably more secure than a card transaction conducted in a shop. No details of yours are ever recorded ( or even seen by anyone ) . Your credit card transaction is done on MYGATE'S SSL secure site


We must also mention that your card MUST be enrolled in your banks 3D SECURE program ( CLICK HERE for a overview and links to your banks 3D SECURE registration process ) for an extra layer of protection . This process allows you to add a 4 pin security code that has to be keyed in before you can use your card online . With the increase of credit card fraud , this extra step helps to prevent unauthorised use of your card - only you will know the pin so only you can use your credit card online - never give out your 3d pin or credit card CCV number out to anyone.

(1) Mygate Payment Portal ( Preferred Method )

Online Credit Card Payments ( Visa & Mastercard )

We use a FNB / Mygate payment gateway that is safe and secure . It is endorsed by all the major banks and accepts Visa & Mastercard , Straight or Budget .

No details of your card or transaction are ever stored . Once you select Mygate as your payment option , your will leave zapsgaming and enter a secure SSL banking gateway where you will enter your credit card details real-time - no one will ever see your card details and no record is stored - safe and no possibility of fraud.

Always look for the SSL link in your browsers address bar for peace of mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which banks do you support?

Currently we support payments from ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank.

What if I don't bank with one of the supported banks?

You will unfortunately, not be able to use Instant EFT for the moment then, but you can still make use of the Mygate Payment Gateway ( credit card required ) to pay online or select EFT payment. 

Do I need to send proof of payment to you or the merchant?

No, you don't need to send proof of payment to either of us. PayFast's system confirms that the actual funds have been transferred so there is no need for an email or a fax from the bank as further confirmation.

Why is the payment so fast!

We hold bank accounts at ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard Bank. When you pay, you pay into a bank account held at the same bank as your own. Because it's an internal transfer, the payment takes place instantly and we're able to positively acknowledge that the funds have reached our account in a matter of seconds!



We have decided to cancel the Paypal option due to high fraud levels on the platform


3D Secure Info

3d secure offers added protection for your card in the form of a pin number and/or password . This is an extra level of protection and will link a pin number / password to your card that will prevent unauthorized use at participating online merchants
