Process Mastercard, Visa or EFT card transactions without a payment gateway. As a secure online payment platform we keep the buyer and the seller safe from chargebacks or non-delivery. Buyer and Seller protection comes standard.

Whether you’re an events organiser, getting some building work done to your house or simply not sure whether your supplier will deliver after you’ve paid the money, Shepherd is there to safeguard you. Sign up in seconds on our easy to use, secure website.

We build trust where there is none.
