Can Yoco accept international payments?

Yoco, the leading payment solution for small businesses in South Africa, is frequently asked if international clients can use their services. The short answer is yes! Here's what you need to know:

Yoco Accepts All Mastercard and Visa Cards, Including International

One of the key benefits of Yoco is that it accepts all major credit and debit cards, including those issued internationally. As long as your customer has a valid Mastercard or Visa card, they will be able to make a purchase from your Yoco-supported business.

Payments are processed in South African Rands

It's important to note that while international cards are accepted, all transactions through Yoco are processed in South African Rands (ZAR). This means your international customers will pay the ZAR amount listed for your products or services. Their bank will handle automatically converting from their home currency to ZAR at the daily exchange rate.

International Transaction Fees

Yoco does charge slightly higher transaction fees for international payments - 3.4% plus VAT versus 2.95% for local payments. This is quite reasonable compared to many other payment processors. The more sales your business makes through Yoco, the lower your fees will be.
