New Product Update – PayFast!

4 7 months ago

Exciting News! The Hive just got even better. 

We’re thrilled to announce some great new updates on WeBuzz that will take your experience and that of your prospects & clients to the next level! 📱✨

The worker bees have been frantically modifying the event honeycomb module of the site. This has meant some changes to the subscription model as well. Our hive members are predominantly resident in South Africa and so the changes made have been with a view to better supporting this group of bees.

Here are some of the changes made in our latest update:

📢 Subscription Gateway Change: WeBuzz now uses the PayFast payment gateway to collect its pollen from its members. The pricing of subscriptions has changed to ZAR.

📢Event Price Listing: The event honeycomb module of WeBuzz has been updated to use South African Rands instead of US Dollars. Members can now create their events and sell tickets in ZAR.

📢PayFast Payment Gateway: Events integrate directly into your PayFast account. This means that when the public buy tickets to your amazing events or raffles, you get the proceeds from the sale immediately into your PayFast account. Transaction fees from PayFast and commission to WeBuzz are deducted before the net proceeds are transferred to your account instantaneously. See T&C’s and and help files in this regard. Lets make some money honey!💷

📢Non PayFast Members Ticket sales: Should our buzzing bees not have a PayFast account then tickets sales are collected by WeBuzz in full and the net proceeds, after transactions fees and commission, are paid out after the event closure date to the members nominated bank account as a lump sum. You still get your money honey! 💷

Integrating a payment gateway into our events module is a significant milestone, that will enhance both the user experience and that of your clients and make event transactions smoother. You no longer have to collect ticket sale proceeds manually via eft’s or cash on the day. When someone purchases a ticket they will be directed to the payment gateway to pay for it and when successful redirect to WeBuzz where the ticket purchase will be finalised and tickets issued.

We can’t wait for you to explore the new and improved WeBuzz! Your feedback is incredibly valuable to us, so please let us know what you think.

The Team at the Hive.

    This new feature is fantastic.

    We have created a Christmas Raffle using the event functionality on WeBuzz and integrated it into our PayFast Account. As people buy tickets we get the money instantly. Also means no more raffle sheets or books or chasing people for money. What a win. Thank you WeBuzz!

    Love this new feature with PayFast. I can now run workshops, sell tickets for them and get the money instantly as tickets are bought for my events.

    My event is easy to share my events with the world not just members on WeBuzz and I get to manage the attendees list right here in WeBuzz.

    This is going to help generate a lot more revenue for me going forward.

    Wonderful!!! I will be using this feature for my daughter’s school raffles. So much easier and no need to pay in for those unfortunate IOU’s.
