Frequently Asked Questions
1. Q: WHY SHOULD I REGISTER ON THE WEBSITE?
2. Q: HOW DO I GO ABOUT ORDERING ASSESSMENTS ON THE WEBSITE?
3. Q: ONCE I HAVE BOUGHT A SUBSCRIPTION AND REGISTERED, HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I RECEIVE MY ASSESSMENTS?
A: Once you have purchased a subscription, Teacher911 will call the school at which you teach and verify that you are an educator at the school and that the information for the subscription that you have purchased is correct i.e. the grades offered at the school and the language/s in which subjects are taught at your school.
Once the information is verified, you will receive an e-mail advising you that your access to the Teacher911 site has been approved. You can then log in and purchase the assessments that you require and make payment. Once your payment has been received and verified, your assessments will be e-mailed to you.
4. Q: HOW DO I MAKE PAYMENT FOR THE ASSESSMENTS THAT I WOULD LIKE TO PURCHASE?
Using the card payment option on the website is the quickest way for you to have your assessments e-mailed to you. Making use of any external, manual payments will result in at least a 48 hour delay in gaining access to your assessments.
Due to the high cost of banking fees, service charges and increase in the VAT rate, we are adding a R4.50 fixed service charge to every transaction.
Release times of various payment methods:
|Payment Method||Time until order is completed|
|Credit or Cheque Card Payments||48 hours|
|Cash Deposit at an ATM / EFT||48 to 72 hours|
|Cheque deposit at an ATM||48 to 72 hours (Please add R55 Cheque Deposit Fee to the total of your order when making payment)|
|Cash Deposit at Bank Teller||48 to 72 hours (Please add R45 Cash Deposit Fee to the total of your order when making payment)|
|Cheque deposit at Bank teller||48 to 72 hours (Please add R55 Cheque Deposit Fee to the total of your order when making payment)|
5. Q: IF I MAKE PAYMENT DIRECTLY ON THE WEBSITE USING THE CARD PAYMENT OPTION AVAILABLE, WILL MY INFORMATION BE SAFE?
3D Secure is an extra layer of security in using your credit card for online transactions. Sellers are asked to enter their 3D Secure password or one time PIN –which they register with their bank– to authenticate that they are the actual cardholder.
You would need to activate 3D Secure on your card via your bank (if you haven’t already done so).
For more information on activating your card for 3D Secure, please go to https://www.payfast.co.za/security-fraud/ scroll to the bottom of the screen and click on your bank’s logo to activate your card for 3D Secure. If you have any queries with regards to activating 3D Secure on your card, kindly contact your relevant bank.

14. Q: REFUNDS – WHAT IS THE PROCESS IF I OVERPAY ON ANY ORDER

- Any overpayment of R30.00 or more will be refunded less a R30.00 charge for banking fees. i.e. if you overpay on an order by R31.00 only R1.00 will be refunded to you.
