We accept the following Credit Cards:

- The CVV number (that’s the last 3 digits on the back of your card/American Express customers a 4-digit number printed on the front of your card. It appears after and to the right of your card number.)
- Your name exactly as it appears on the front of the card
- Payment will be deducted immediately. That means we can start processing your order straight away.
Are you 3D Secure:
- 3D Secure is an internationally recognised security standard for online credit card payments. It is also called Verified by Visa, MasterCard SecureCode or Amex Safekey.
- It is an authentication service that allows only the cardholder to use the card when shopping online.
- Cardholders are allowed to enter their previously selected PIN/Password or a One Time PIN to help their bank to know it is you shopping online.
- An additional focus on the safety of online transactions.
- The bank may have already registered the you for the service, or you may be required to register during your next online purchase.
As a security measure to both the cardholder as well as Yuppie Gadgets, when an order total exceeds R1000 in some cases or on first order with us, you may be contacted and asked to verify some information before an order is dispatched. Credit Cards used for the first time on our website together with any large or unusual credit card transactions will need to be validated by the issuing bank or the cardholder before your order can be processed.
Can I use my budget facility on Yuppie Gadgets?
Yes, for any order over R 300. To use the budget facility, select the payment period when you enter your Credit Card details during checkout. We support 3, 6, 12, 18 or 24 months for budget payments.
Does Yuppie Gadgets store my Credit Card information?
We never store your Credit Card information. If you’d prefer to store your Credit Card details for faster checkout, then consider signing up for PayU. This option is also available at checkout on the secure payment page.
2. Instant EFT
Instant EFT enables you to make payments with traditional internet banking with SA’s four biggest banks. The electronic funds transfer (EFT) gets verified instantly. No long periods of waiting for the funds to clear, no proof of payment required and no disclosing of financial information.
Bitcoin is an innovative digital payment method, performed over a peer-to-peer network. Buyers can purchase Bitcoin in a variety of ways (in almost any country in the world) and use it in a variety of ways: including online purchases using PayFast. When a buyer visits a PayFast seller’s site and clicks to buy an item, they will be shown Bitcoin as payment method (in addition to the other enabled payment methods). Shoppers simply pay the Bitcoin amount (at the current rate of exchange) during checkout.
mobicred is an online account that gives you access to credit, which you can use on PayFast. The facility works in a similar fashion to retail store credit: only online. Click here to get mobicred now.
5. ATM debit cards (via PayD)
PayD allows you to use your Debit Card. All you need to do is enter your debit card and mobile phone number and then authenticate the transaction on your phone. The system works with devices on the Vodacom or MTN network and with debit cards issued by Absa, Nedbank and Standard Bank.
MasterPass is a simple, convenient, trusted digital wallet from MasterCard for faster, safer shopping at online merchants. It is a digital wallet that makes online shopping safer and easy by storing payment information in one secure place.
7. PayU Wallet
PayU Wallet is a service that enables you to pay for products and services from your mobile phone, tablet or computer. You can store your credit card details for safe and secure payments to your favourite stores without exposing your personal or financial details. You can also load funds into the PayU Wallet Balance for easier and more secure payments.
8. EFT or Bank Deposit
If you don’t have a credit card, or prefer not to use your card online, you can pay by EFT or bank deposit. This is a little slower than other payment methods because we’ll need to wait for your payment to reflect before we can start processing your order.
Once you’ve placed your order, you’ll need to make an EFT or direct deposit into our account within 1 working day, using the Bank Details on your order.
As soon as we receive your payment, we’ll start processing your order.
Please remember: It’s important that we receive your payment within one working day to avoid cancelling your order automatically.
We very excited to announce that we are now accepting Paypal for all orders as an easy and secure payment method.
Please note that your Rand order value will be converted by PayPal to the equal US Dollar amount, and will differ slightly from bank to bank. Please note we have no control over the exchange rate charged by the banks.
PLEASE NOTE PAYPAL PAYMENTS ARE ONLY ACCEPTED FOR VERIFIED PAYPAL USERS AND ONLY FOR CUSTOMERS BASED OUTSIDE OF SOUTH AFRICA. If you do not see the Paypal payment option upon checkout, then the option is not available to you.
