Traffic Fines Press Release

14 Feb 2023

Pay@ cements its place in the payment space with new traffic fine payment functionality

Pay@, Southern Africa’s leading payment solutions provider has launched, a new and more convenient way for motorists to pay their traffic fines following the appointment of Pay@ by the City of Cape Town as it new online and retailer third party service provider for fine payments from the 1st July 2022.

With Pay@’s ever-expanding digital payment solutions, motorists can simply go to and enter their notice number. The platform will pull all the relevant information of the fine including details of the offense, including where it took place. If the offender has a warrant, this will be shown and the client will need to register and enter their details for receipting purposes once payment is made, which will be sent via email and can be used as proof should the motorist be summoned to court.

However, should the motorist not have any warrants, there is no need to register and payments can be done easily online. Payments can be processed via card, EFT or through third-party apps like Masterpass, SnapScan or Zapper.

Motorists also have the option to pay traffic fines at selected retailers using card or cash.

Fines issued before the 1st of July can be paid at selected Spar outlets.

Fines issued as from 1 July can be paid at selected SPAR stores, as well as Ackermans, Builder’s Warehouse, Game, Makro, PEP and Pick n Pay as well as at Shoprite / Checker Money Market kiosks from the 1st of August 2022 as well as on the website.

“Pay@ is in a unique position to offer traffic fine payment solutions with the largest payment network in South Africa allowing anyone to make payments easily and our ability to ensure all transaction are fully reconcilable.” says Charlie Goodrick, Pay@’s Customer Relationship Manager for City of Cape Town.

One of the differences and key benefits for clients who makes use of Pay@’s new functionality is that previously, clients using the third-party service providers would be charged a service fee for payments, whereas now, clients using Pay@ only pay for what they see.

Clients, however, do have the option to register their details on the safe and secure platform and once their payment has been processed, will receive an email notification.

Pay@ is confident that digital innovations in the current payment space will continue to emerge, providing consumers with more ways to reach their clients and increase the convenience and efficiency of the front-end payment process.

“We’re on a journey to becoming the one-stop-shop for payments, with plans to bring all bills across to the platform, including municipal bills and prepaid electricity, Pay@ is positioning itself as a trusted payments partner that is driving the fintech space with their innovative solutions – making payments accessible from anywhere, at any time.” concludes Goodrick.
