You may not reveal your access pin to anyone else, nor may you use anyone else’s access pin. We are not responsible for losses incurred by you including but not limited to, the use of your account by any person other than you, arising as the result of misuse of access pins. The user accepts that the user will be personally liable for all transactions concluded on the user’s account.
We are committed to providing secure online payment facilities. Our online payment options are administered by PayGate (Pty) Ltd, an approved specialist third-party payment provider for all South African Acquiring Banks. DPO PayGate uses the strictest form of encryption, namely Secure Socket Layer 3 (SSL3), and no Card details are stored on the website.

Payments will be accepted via Visa, MasterCard, Diners, or American Express Cards, or a ClickSendNow eWallet (refer to the eWallet Terms and Conditions) or prepaid card (refer to the prepaid card Terms and Conditions).
Where payment is made by credit card, additional information may be required to authorise and/or verify the validity of payment. In such cases, we reserve the right to withhold authorisation of the transaction until the additional information is received by us. If we do not receive authorisation, the transaction will be cancelled. You warrant that you are fully authorised to use the credit card supplied for purposes of payment. You also warrant that your credit card has sufficient available funds to cover all the costs incurred as a result of the services used on the website.
A payment order instruction is created on the mobile app by selecting the “Send Money” button. This will initiate the creation of a transaction referred to herein as a “payment order”. This payment order will contain information surrounding the sender, receiver, financial particulars, exchange rates, reporting, and related aspects.
Once a payment order is successfully paid, the receiver will be issued with a secure “pin code”. This pin code will allow the receiver to use their ID document to collect payment at any collection point of our pay-out partners.
Once a transaction is settled, the funds will be immediately available for collection by the recipient.
Settlement Of Payment Order
By creating a remittance payment order, you request a designated amount to be paid to your designated recipient, utilizing an exchange rate. The exchange rate used by ClickSendNow will be indicated clearly during the payment order process. By creating an order on the site, you agree to the exchange rate provided by ClickSendNow at the point in time at which the transaction is taking place.
Please note that ClickSendNow will not be obliged to pay out the designated amount to the recipient before receiving full payment of the designated amount, payable in respect of the payment order created.
Should we not receive payment, for any reason whatsoever, at the point of payment order creation, the transaction is cancelled.
All incoming payments must be in South African Rand (ZAR) into the designated bank accounts/authorisation of bank/prepaid debit card/wallet as ClickSendNow does not accept any other currencies. All incoming payments must be made by prepaid debit card or by payment using the customer’s Clicksendnow wallet. We do not accept cash deposits or EFT at any of our designated banks for remittance transactions.
ClickSendNow charges a fee for its services which will be displayed on the order page. This service fee will be added to all payment orders to provide the client with a total amount payable before the payment order is processed. By confirming the payment order, you acknowledge that ClickSendNow will charge a service fee for the payment transfer service.
ClickSendNow’s service fee is inclusive of VAT and we reserve the right to change the service fee or exchange rate at any time.
ClickSendNow will pay out the funds to the designated recipient upon receipt of payment. The pay-out option may differ depending on the recipient country and/or the option which the user selected in the “send money” process. Please visit the website or mobile app to view the pay-out options.
ClickSendNow will endeavor to make payment to the designated recipient within 24 (twenty-four) hours from receipt of payment for a valid payment order. Should ClickSendNow encounter a technical problem and a pay-out has not occurred or been made available within the 24 (twenty-four) hour time period, the user will be entitled to a full refund of the payment order amount. Should a user fail to contact ClickSendNow in the aforementioned instance to recall the transaction and request a refund, ClickSendNow will continue to proceed with the transaction.
ClickSendNow relies on implementing partners in the recipient countries to facilitate the pay-outs. ClickSendNow cannot be held liable for any technical, financial, or other problems of any sort on the side of our implementing partners, even if the implementing partner delays a payout or a payout fails to occur. ClickSendNow will endeavor to assist both the sender and receiver, in communication with the implementing partners, to remedy such situations.
Cancellation Of Payment Orders And Refunds
You may cancel a payment order if pay-out to the recipient for a fully settled payment order, has not occurred. If pay-out has not been made, you may request ClickSendNow to cancel the order by contacting ClickSendNow’s Support Centre at:
Payments can be cancelled on request however, there is no guarantee that the cancellation will be successful. Charges will not be reversed to your account and there may be additional charges from the pay-out partner, which will be for your account. Only once the pay-out partner has confirmed the cancellation of the transaction, will the money be credited back to your account. The latter might not be at the same exchange rate at which you initially paid for the currency.
Cancellations cannot be guaranteed and will attract a cancellation fee of R100.00. This cancellation fee may be amended and/or waived by ClickSendNow at its sole discretion.
Cancellation of payment orders where paid-out failed to occur in the recipient/designated country will only be made at the discretion of ClickSendNow. Should ClickSendNow accept a cancellation request, the payment order will be refunded in full, less the initial service fee.
ClickSendNow will not be liable for the refund of a payment order that was sent to the incorrect recipient and has already been paid out if such an error was made by the user.
The user provides ClickSendNow with personal information relating to the designated recipients. The personal information, i.e. the name and telephone number of the recipients, must be correct as per the intended recipient’s national identification document. ClickSendNow will not be held liable for a pay-out erroneously made to the incorrect recipient if the user provided an incorrect name and/or telephone number.
Should the incorrect recipient details be provided, the user is required to contact the Support Centre by emailing: email@example.com to request an amendment of the recipient details of the payment order.
The amendment of recipient details will attract an administration fee of R100.00. ClickSendNow may waive and/or amend this administration fee at its sole discretion.
It is the sole responsibility of the sender and recipient to ensure that the pay-out pin code remains secure. ClickSendNow will not be responsible for any losses incurred by the sender or recipient as a result of an unauthorised third party accessing the pin code.
The user authorises ClickSendNow to accept all instructions and consents, and any other documentation or communication if transmitted via data message which appears to originate from the user and act upon the instruction/s. The user indemnifies ClickSendNow against all loss arising out of or in connection with the risks involved in the use of data messaging.
