WooCommerce is one of the biggest ecommerce service providers in the world. To that extent, even ecommerce retailers in Nigeria and Africa prefer the solutions that the platform brings to offer their goods and services online. However, the problem of payments for African merchants has persisted for a long time now.
That is the issue that startups like Paystack and Flutterwave, among others, have stepped up to solve over the years. As of the time of this writing, the African space has made an even closer leap towards being on par with the rest of the world in terms of seamlessly offering their products and getting paid without hassles.
WooCommerce partners Paystack.
The WooCommerce platform has officially recognised Paystack as its official payment partner for the whole of Africa. This means that the payment service is naturally integrated into the WooCommerce offering now, allowing seamless setup, management, collections and remittances from the vendors who choose to use it.
Given the solid framework that Paystack has built over the years, it is both laudable and logical that they be the ones to secure such a partnership.
Going forward, Paystack will now be listed alongside Stripe (which acquired the former company last year) as an independent payments provider on the WooCommerce service, all dedicated to the African landscape.
