FASTA Credit for Checkout


South African Edition

The official FASTA Credit for Checkout Extension for WooCommerce.

FASTA Credit for Checkout gives the merchant the ability to have customers pay for their online purchases in under 5 minutes using FASTA Credit for Checkout.

The FASTA customer user interface is designed for simplicity, elegance and speed, giving your customers the ultimate cutting-edge experience under the banner of your merchant brand. It is fast, intuitive and secure for an inline experience that is geared to reducing your abandon rate.

FASTA provides a configurable sandbox making it easy to try it out and get started.

IMPORTANT: FASTA Credit for Checkout offers the merchant the ability to choose between an “Embedded (inline)” or “Redirect” customer experience.

FASTA “Embedded (inline)”, the recommended option. Your customer never leaves your site during the application process. It’s as if the process is designed as part of your site.

We recommend the FASTA inline experience to reduce your cart abandon rate by creating a seamless customer flow.
