SID Security

A recent MasterCard study revealed that 90% of South Africans cite the availability of secure payment facilities as a critical consideration when shopping online. With a proven record of zero security breaches since its launch in 2007, SID Instant EFT is recognised as South Africa’s most trusted online payment alternative to credit card.


Bank-Level Transaction Security

SID allows online payments to be made securely, via the Internet Banking platforms of South Africa’s most trusted banks. SID transactions are thus subject to the same, comprehensive security provided by the shopper’s Bank.

100% Trusted and Certified

SID is independently monitored and verified by leading privacy and security certification specialists, Trust Guard, and GoDaddy, thereby providing both shoppers and merchants with even greater protection and peace of mind.

Additional SID Protection

SID goes beyond the security of online banking by adding extra security measures to protect you and your money:


No data access

SID does not access or store the shopper’s Internet Banking login details, ensuring that sensitive financial information is kept completely secure.


Merchant Protection Program

SID eliminates the risk of chargebacks and non-payments. Learn more…
