To ensure the continued safety of our customers’ data, PayFast will be disabling SSL/Early TLS (1.0 and 1.1) on 30 June 2018 in favour of TLS 1.2 and greater. Most modern browsers and devices already use TLS 1.2 or greater and have done so for a long time.
This means that a small number of Internet shoppers with very old browsers or devices will no longer be able to pay for goods and services via PayFast. As a PayFast merchant, you won’t be able to access the PayFast website and merchant dashboard if your browser or device is unsupported.
