Note: There is no minimum amount for the down payment but the down payment must be less than the transaction amount.

FORSA Payment Workflow (User Experience)

FORSA payment method is hosted by PayTabs, which means that it will be managed and processed on our side. You can have the same page embedded in your checkout page by following our How to not redirect my customers to an external payment page? (iFrame/Embedded Mode) solution article.

Using the FORSA payment method (via one of our integration methods listed in our How to integrate with PayTabs? solution article), when the cardholder proceeds to checkout on the merchant side, they will be redirected to the PayTabs hosted payment page to provide his phone number to complete the payment as shown below:

Once the customer is redirected to the payment page he/she will pick FORSA as below.




Then the customer will be required to enter his details to proceed to the next step.



After that, the customer can see an option for a downpayment: EGP 100 (must be less than the cart amount) with a minimum transaction amount of 50EGP.


Then the customer can pick the tenures that suit his needs from 6 months to 61 months.



Then will wait for the OTP sent by FORSA to confirm the transaction.



The final step is the confirmation that the payment is successful.



Transactions that have been paid through FORSA will be tagged in the payment method in the transaction detail window as shown below.



The Settlement Flow


Please note that settlements will be done by FORSA directly within 21 Working Days.
