Company Information

We established PayGate merchant services in 1996, around the same time that great businesses like Google, Amazon and eBay were founded.

We share our proud African origins with accomplished South African entrepreneurs like Mark Shuttleworth, space tourist and founder of Thawte; and Elon Musk of PayPal fame. Over more than 15 years of consistent excellence in service delivery, we have developed into a global payment gateway business with satisfied clients on five continents.

At PayGate we understand the needs of our clients. We deliver effective merchant services that have the power to simplify seemingly complex problems. This contributes to our solid market leadership in the continuously evolving online payments arena.

Because we are reliably and consistently ahead of the game, our clients can be certain they have the competitive edge they need in theirs.

Our business revolves around long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with people like you. We hire the best to deliver the best - a team of real, passionate people in a digital world. Our belief is that true intelligence finds form in simplicity, which is why we partner our clients in mapping out clear and effective online merchant processes. Through our dedicated, hands-on approach, we work with you to make your life easier and increase your bottom line. By being available, open and transparent, we can help you and your business get the best from our approach.
