iKhokha Transaction Rates

Take advantage of iKhokha's low transaction rates!

The transaction rate is a small percentage that we charge for transactions that you process with iKhokha. This is a standard practice for payment solution providers.

The transaction rate depends on the type of payment method that you use with iKhokha, as well as the type of card or instant EFT used by your customer.

We will match or beat the rate offered by our competitors. That’s our way of delivering on our promise to make life easier for small businesses. Get in touch with one of our team members on 087 222 7000 or support@ikhokha.com.


Card machines - South African cards

The transaction rate that we charge for South African cards on our card machines depends on how much you trade with us. The more you trade, the lower your fees!

If you trade less than R40 000 per month, our transaction rate is 2.75% (excl. VAT).

If you trade between R40 000 and R100 000, we will automatically decrease your transaction rate, down to 2.65%, 2.55% or 2.50% (excl. VAT),  depending on how much you trade. You will hear from us on the 10th of the month if your rate has been dropped, and it will be effective from the 10th of the following month.  

If you trade over R100 000 or more per month, you can chat to one of our team members to get custom rates on 087 222 7000 or support@ikhokha.com. We will match or beat the rate offered by our competitors.
