Card payments allow your customer to use a card linked to their bank account to pay you. So you're not limited to cash-only transactions and you can make bigger sales more often.Buy one!
Card payments are the future
There are no two ways about it: card payments are the way of the future. As customers continue to embrace the benefits of paying by card, you need to ensure you can process them – or risk losing out.
Card payments are on the rise – big time.
Shoppers from all walks of life, across South Africa, favour cards over cash. Card payments are so prolific, in fact, that paying with cash is now seen as downright old school.
While cash and the consumers who use it will always be around, card payments will continue to grow in popularity thanks to the fact that an increasing number of South Africans are officially becoming ‘banked’, the formal term for someone having access to a bank account.
Accepting card payments benefits your customers and you.
Card payments are the shiz, for several reasons. They’re secure (read more about our security protocols here), they’re convenient (who wants to dig through a purse for change?), and they’re Covid-19 safe. By accepting card payments, you’re able to cater to more customers. And more customers mean more sales. YASSS.
Accepting card payments means you can:
Less cash in your pocket (and more in your bank account) is the safer, smarter way of doing business.
Grow your business faster by tapping into the power of a card payment machine. Level up, the Yoco way.
Money is dirty. Our card payment machines make sure you and your customers are protected while you get paid.
Think card payments aren't for you? Wrong.
You don’t need to be a big business to accept card payments.
From buying their morning flat white from a drive-thru coffee caravan to topping up on data (where does it go though?) – SA shoppers are using card payments for, well, pretty much everything. In other words, consumers are paying for all manner of purchases with cards at businesses big, small, and everywhere in between.
Contrary to popular belief, accepting card payments is super simple.
We know you’ve got a bajillion other things to worry about – getting to grips with complicated tech in order to accept card payments shouldn’t be one of them. Yoco card machines are easy to use so that you can accept card payments without a hitch.

Buy our Neo or Go machines and only pay a percentage of your sales – nothing else. We don’t charge you a monthly rental fee, or to withdraw your earnings. What’s more, transaction fees go down as your sales go up. And, if sales slow down or stop, your fees do too.
