As at now, over 60K businesses are using Paystack to accept payments online and most of them are majorly Nigerian businesses. So far, it has remained the number one payment processor in Africa as its operations have also been extended to both South Africa and Ghana.

So what is Paystack all about? 

The company is a FinTech startup which process payments made within Africa and specifically Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa. They do accept USD but only for selected countries. A simple way to define the company is Stripe but with Africa as its target.

The company was founded in 2015 by Shola Akinlade and Ezra Olubi. The company has its current headquarters at Lagos, Nigeria but their reach is much more bigger than that. They currently process international payments as well as local payments making life much more easier for Africans.

According to their official website, they paid out $27.5 million+ as at October 2018 and this is quite impressive as most of these payments were made within Africa.

In October 2020, news broke out that Stripe acquired the startup. Many experts were already expecting this since the romance between the two companies had started months before the $200 million acquisition.
