At COAPE, we take your privacy and security very seriously when it comes to enrolling on one of our courses online.
Once you have selected a course your browser will go redirect you to a third-party payment system called “Payfast”. This system operates in a ‘secure mode’ as soon as you access the ‘payment’ page. You can check that you are shopping in a secure environment by looking for either a locked padlock or a key icon in the address bar at the top right of your browser, or a grey bar at the bottom of your screen, depending on what type of computer and browser you are using. You can also check that you are in ‘secure mode’ by noting the ‘https’ at the beginning of our internet payment service provider’s (Secure Trading) ‘https://payfast.co.za’ web address.
Being in ‘secure mode’ means that all of your details are encrypted to help keep them secure. Encryption creates billions of code combinations to protect each transaction made on our site, so your card details cannot be ‘hijacked’ and viewed by anyone else using the Internet. If you are using one of the more recent browser versions, our site supports 128-bit encryption and therefore keeps your details as safe as possible at all times.
We only accept orders that are placed using Secure Socket Layer (SSL). This technology prevents you from inadvertently revealing personal information using an insecure connection.
No credit or debit card details are stored by COAPE, Payfast, or any other third parties once your order has been processed.
Payment can be made using the following methods:
The COAPE Online Payment Area allows you to make any kind of payment safely and securely online. Please speak to us if you have any queries regarding making a payment.
