Payment gateways - South Africa or general


Hi Bubblers,

I’m looking to integrate with a South African payment gateway, PayFast - has anyone had any luck with this? I’d be looking for more than just their HTML ‘Pay Now’ buttons, which is what I’ve been doing for now. But I need to be able to receive notice of if the payment was successful, so I’m thinking an API. Can Bubble do this?

Has anyone otherwise done an integration with another South African, or global, gateway that could tell me the generic steps and I can then try walk myself through it?

Thanks so much!!!


If you post a link to the api for you may get some assistance.
I’m guessing you might have to define some Webhooks to get notified when some event such as a successful payment is made
So to answer your question question, if they use some webhook for notification, then yes bubble supports that.


Thanks so much for your reply!

Great to hear that Bubble supports Webhooks, now to just give them a go :slight_smile:


hie @mccjon im planning to intergrate payfast to my app as well how do you go about it ?


Hi there,

The HTML payment buttons are a basic option, but it looks like the API Connector plugin will be needed,a and then to follow PayFast’s API documentation. I haven’t done it yet but will let you know when I do :slight_smile:
