Hi guys!

I need some advice on subscription platforms to use locally in South Africa.

I want run a monthly subscription package on a e commerce website where users can pay for it by card through a paygate. It will be a physically product which will be delivered monthly.

From my Research: I came down on
Shopify (too expensive)
Wordpress has woocommerce subscription
Zoho subscription software
Sage Pay ecommerce platform and subscription platform

Does any one has experience with a subscription based website? I feel its better to go with local companies to deal with service.

I make use of WooCommerce with their Membership and Subscriptions bundle, and then integrate that with PayFast Subscriptions. Works well.

Thank you for the reply. That will be a solution for me. One question about PayFast: Does their paygate redirect or stay on your site while processing the transaction?

Only a pleasure

I was on mobile when I answered so did not provide a comprehensive response.

To answer your question regarding who may be best, I would strongly suggest PayFast as their development team is on the ball vs SagePay

We use both providers and experiences with PayFast have been far superior than Sage.

Hi, i would highly recommend sage pay. Their integration team is very responsive and they have a great api. They pay out your funds quicker and they have just lowered their cc rate to the lowest non merchant acc gateway i could find.

You've been posting this in a lot of threads, probably searching for mentions of payfast/sage pay.
