Introducing Paystack Catalyst
Scale your tech startup with high-growth tools and resources
Paystack powers growth for thousands of some of the most ambitious tech startups in Africa.
We do this with a suite of powerful payment tools, and today, we’re excited to announce Paystack Catalyst — a collection of even more resources to help tech startups in Africa scale.
Say hello to Paystack Catalyst
We created Paystack Catalyst because we understand that it takes more than an API call to build a successful tech startup.
Catalyst connects ambitious tech startups in Africa with the tools and resources you need to accelerate your startup’s growth. Let’s explore some of the benefits!

"When we wanted to expand to Nigeria, we knew that if we tried to use a copy-paste approach, we wouldn’t be successful. Paystack was really helpful from a regulatory standpoint, and also providing insights into consumer behaviour and cultural preferences."
Nicole Dunn, Chief (Commercial) Operating Officer, Revio (South Africa 🇿🇦)
$25,000 in free Paystack processing
Process your first $25,000 on Paystack for free. This means that Paystack won’t charge you transaction fees until you cross the local currency equivalent of $25,000.
Expert feedback on fundraising and accelerators
For early-stage startups, navigating fundraising and accelerator programs can be confusing. Let us provide patient guidance with 1-on-1 application reviews and advice.
Priority technical consulting
Paystack’s Developer Documentation can help you build anything you can imagine. But when you’re pushing boundaries, the path forward might not fit neatly into any existing playbook.
Paystack Catalyst gives you backchannel access to members of the Paystack team who can think deeply with you on the technical details of how to bring your vision to life.
"Sometimes, the things we needed to build required tools that Paystack didn’t have at the time, so the Catalyst team would have internal conversations on our behalf and get them built. The team has really taken a lot of weight off our shoulders."
Emmanuel Okeke, Co-Founder & CTO, Brass (Nigeria 🇳🇬)

What other startups have to say about Paystack Catalyst
We’re proud to have supported several startups across Africa through Paystack Catalyst. Here’s what a few of them had to say about their Catalyst experience:
One of the great things that TixAfrica has benefited from Paystack Catalyst was early access to the Paystack Terminal. We built a unique app on Terminal for people looking to buy tickets offline, so that the event organizers and Tix could serve them while also retaining their data.
Folayemi Agusto, Co-Founder & CEO, tix.africa (Nigeria 🇳🇬)
The support of the team itself is amazing. Our first conversation was centered around our business, with Paystack trying to understand our goals, and how they could play a role in that.
Over the course of our interactions, there was that real support from the Paystack team to help us honestly find product market fit, and listen to our customers better.
Alexis Roman, Co-Founder & CEO, Koa (Kenya 🇰🇪)
