Hey there, fellow creators! If you're based in South Africa and are exploring the world of online courses and memberships, you've likely encountered a significant hurdle: payment processing.

Selling digital goods without access to Stripe is a hot topic, and for good reason. Many of you have shared this challenge, especially those of you starting and setting up shop on platforms like Kajabi, Thinkific, and Teachable.

The crux of the matter lies in these platforms' payment processing options, which are typically limited to Stripe or PayPal. And here's the kicker for South African creators: Stripe isn't available in our neck of the woods This leaves a gaping hole in the process of selling online content, as taking credit card payments becomes a logistical headache.

But don't despair just yet! There's a silver lining, and it comes in the form of local solutions that cater to our specific needs. In our latest YouTube video, I dive into how you can circumvent these limitations and effectively sell your online courses and memberships, accepting payments in Rands using South African payment options.

How to sell on Kajabi in Rands

In the video, we tackle the not-so-small issue of finding an alternative to Stripe. The go-to for many has been PayPal, but let's be real: it's far from ideal. With PayPal's limited popularity in SA, reluctance from customers to create an account, and the inability to process payments in Rands, it's hardly the solution we're looking for. Not to mention, PayPal only integrates with FNB bank accounts, adding another layer of complication.

Paystack to the rescue!

Enter Paystack, a game-changer in the South African payment gateway landscape. Acquired by Stripe in 2020 and launched locally in 2021, Paystack offers a sleek, modern checkout experience that can significantly boost your sales. It supports a variety of payment methods, including debit and credit cards, SnapScan, and bank transfers with Ozow, making it incredibly versatile for your needs.

In our video, we guide you through setting up Paystack checkouts on Kajabi, allowing you to sell your courses in Rands. We also explore how CheckoutJoy can be customized to enhance your conversions, including setting up a custom checkout page right on your Kajabi site with Paystack.
