Illumina Pty Ltd. uses the PayFast Online Portal for payments. PayFast use Extended Validation SSL with 256-bit encryption. Only two of the four major South African banks use this –the highest– level of encryption currently available. 3D Secure is in place for all credit card transactions. They use BIN/IIN validation to check for card-issuing bank locations and merchants can choose to enable/disable payments from certain countries. Payments and card details are automatically checked against large online databases of blacklisted details. For more details you can visit the Payfast website here.
3D Secure is an extra layer of security in using your credit card for online transactions. Sellers are asked to enter their 3D Secure password or one time PIN – which they register with their bank – to authenticate that they are the actual cardholder.
Please visit the Payfast Website here and Scroll Down to the bottom of the page to activate your 3D Secure at your preferred bank.

Bitcoin is an innovative digital payment method, performed over a peer-to-peer network. We partnered with Luno (previously known as BitX) to allow our sellers to accept Bitcoin payments.
Buyers can purchase Bitcoin in a variety of ways (in almost any country in the world) and use it in a variety of ways: including online purchases using PayFast.
Buyers simply pay the Bitcoin amount (at the current rate of exchange) during checkout. Sellers will still receive South African rand, just like with all our other payment methods.
Neither PayFast nor the seller receives or stores any Bitcoin, so there aren’t any risks of security, volatility or exchange rate fluctuations.
For a more in-depth explanation, please see the PayFast Website.

Please note that we are not able to consolidate any sale coupons or vouchers with a store credit.
