Which Payment Reference to Use & How to Download a Proof of Payment

The digital world is simplifying our lives by making it easy to do online payments with the ‘click of a button’. However, the payment’s correct Reference Number is essential in order for our Billing Department to allocate it to the correct Customer.

Which reference should you use? Make it easy on yourself (and for all future payments) by using your Domains.co.za Account Number as your Payment Reference. This way you don’t have to change it every time you do an online payment.

You can also use your Domains.co.za invoice number as a reference, which you may want to change for every individual invoice payment! Please ensure that you, or your bookkeeper, capture it correctly, additional digits can cause chaos in correctly allocating a payment.

While online banking is awesome, sometimes gremlins can sneak in, and that Proof of Payment (POP) your bank should have sent to us didn’t arrive, or perhaps you may have an error in the reference?

Should there have been an error, no problem, just send us your bank’s Proof of Payment in a .pdf format, on email from your Domains.co.za account’s registered email address to billing@domains.co.za.

REMEMBER: Always use your Domains.co.za Account Number as your payment reference.
