When you purchase a round and make payment using GB Payment Gateway, a unique invoice number will be sent to you which serves as a voucher. You call the club to book your round. On arrival, you submit your voucher to the club and voila, you’re enjoying a great day of golf! In the backend, GB liaises with course to inform them of your players voucher so when you arrive, you’re taken care of.

Does SA GolfBidder charge a commission?
In an ideal world, everything would be free but unfortunately there are costs to maintaining a world class operation like GB like software, staff who tire away in the back end to make your experience as enjoyable as possible, Banking transaction fees and so on. GB keeps as lean an operation as possible which is great news for you because we can keep our fees low as a result. Listing an advert cost nothing! If you want to promote an ad to featured list / highlighted list there is a small fee payable regardless. Otherwise only once a successful sale has been made does a 7.5% commission come into play. No hidden costs and complex algorithms, 7.5% and that’s that!

Are there monthly fees?
Being a user on GB is 100% FREE / MAHALA / GRATIS. Yippee
