Pay Pal Intergration

That's great news. I know we have had some significant interest from South Africa.

Paypal still hasn't updated their supported currencies to include the ZAR. Perhaps it's not available to business accounts yet? We'll try and follow up with Paypal, but let us know if you have any more information.


  • I have set up my PayPal account and integrated it with my website using Checkfront's installation instructions on I then tried to do a test booking and clicked on the check out with PayPal button and nothing happens, does anyone have a solution for this?

    It looks you are using the ZAR. Paypal unfortunately doesn’t support the Rand.

    Here are the currencies currently supported by Paypal:

    You can still use Checkfront in Reservation only mode. If there is a popular payment processor in South Africa you like, let us know and we can look at adding it.
  • PayPal has recently arrived in South Africa, we are now allowed to accept payments. Seems strange I have tried a few things and still no luck. I click on the button and the page freezes for a second or two and then nothing. Any ideas?
