Simplicity, integrity, passion and pride are at the core of everything we do, because what we do has a direct impact on how South Africans buy household necessities, grow businesses, and trade within the global economy.

PASA – the Payments Association of South Africa – was recognised by the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) as the Payment System Management Body (PSMB) of South Africa in 1998. In this role, PASA oversees the function of 18 different payment streams ranging from low value debit card transactions to high value bond exchange payments. We have also implemented several initiatives that have shaped the payments landscape in South Africa, including the Rapid Payments Programme and DebiCheck.

We strive to employ “the best of the best” and we have a culture of developing those employees into becoming “better than the best”. Our working environment is cordial, fast-paced, and focused on balancing compliance and modernisation.

The values that guide our attitudes and behaviours are “CLEAR”:
• Co-operation and Collaboration – we co-operate and collaborate towards making SA payments better
• Leadership – we behave with integrity and respect, we are open to alternate views, and we take accountability for our commitments and actions
• Excellence – we deliver only our best every time
• Adaptability – we search for alternatives and keep an open mind
Reliability – we are dependable
