iKhokha Transaction Rates

Get the best transaction rates in South Africa and start making business easier!

At iKhokha, we have one overarching goal; to create financial inclusion throughout South Africa! That's why we provide affordable digital payment solutions that make it easier for everyone to accept card payments. 

SA’s Lowest Transaction Rates

The transaction rate is the small percentage charged for all transactions done through a merchant’s card machine. This is common practice for all banks and independent financial service providers.

However, to maintain the lowest possible transaction rate in the market, we'll often match or beat the rate offered by our competitors. It's our way of making digital payment solutions available to all business owners, regardless of the size of the business.

iKhokha's standard transaction rate starts at 2.75% (excluding VAT) per transaction. Each merchant has the opportunity to lower this transaction rate by increasing their monthly trading volume. The more you trade, the lower your rate!


To secure a custom rate tailored to your business, please email customrates@ikhokha.com.


QUICK NOTE: iKhokha transaction rates exclude VAT, as per the industry standard. All new customers start at 2.75% excl. VAT unless agreed upon beforehand


Zero Monthly Fees

In addition to lower transaction rates, iKhokha card machines can be purchased once-off or on a weekly payment plan over 16 weeks. This means you own your card machine and don’t pay any monthly rental fees!

Settlement Fees

There is a standard settlement fee for funds to be transferred daily into a merchant's account. It's a nominal amount of R2.50 per transaction settlement (regardless of the amount settled).
