What are the options for accepting payments in South Africa ? The most widely used payment processor in SA is PayFast, is there a way to use them please?

Squarespace Commerce is not yet designed for use in South Africa. It supports Stripe and PayPal as payment processors, and neither can be used by a business based in South Africa.

Other payment methods like Payfast are not supported and unlikely to be supported in the near future (Q1 2022- Q1 2024).

If you're desperate for a workaround to use Payfast, this guide may help: Using Squarespace in South Africa with PayFast, Netcash or Rave.
