How Mobicred works

  1. When buyers first register a Mobicred account, they undergo a simple online process to determine their credit limit.
  2. Mobicred account holders with sufficient available credit can then make payment by selecting Mobicred at checkout and signing into their account.
  3. Once processed, you will immediately receive the full amount (minus PayFast’s fees), without the risk of payment reversals.
