I would like to know if a South African business can use the PayPal facility on their website and receive payments through it etc.

Hi IdG

I am sorry to say that while South Africans can send payments via PayPal, they cannot receive payments. So as a South African you cannot use PayPal to run your business at this time.

You might want to consider looking at as an alternative to see if that meets your needs.

Alert Pay is also OK for us South Africans. Paypal isn't, because of SARS.

Another alternative is - they don't have as much functionality as PayPal though.
