WooCommerce is the biggest ecommerce solution in Africa, and we’re excited to announce our official partnership which makes Paystack the preferred payments partner for WooCommerce in Africa.

Here’s what this partnership means for you: Paystack is now integrated more closely into the WooCommerce experience, and so to accept payments on your store, you can now simply select Paystack as your payment option right from your WooCommerce Dashboard.

Previously, you needed to separately download and install the Paystack plugin for WooCommerce, but integrating Paystack is now a lot simpler.

Why WooCommerce?

WooCommerce is arguably the most popular ecommerce solution in Africa. Here are some of the reasons why many business owners and developers love it:

  • Scalability: Irrespective of the size of your business, you can use WooCommerce. And as your business grows and becomes more sophisticated, you can trust WooCommerce to scale as you scale.
  • Pricing: WooCommerce is one of the most affordable ecommerce platforms out there. By itself, it’s completely free. You only pay when you install extra plugins to your store for added functionality. Even then, many of the plugins are also reasonably priced.
  • Extensibility: There’s a large community built around WooCommerce, so chances are that no matter your business needs, there’s a plugin — free or paid — that can solve it for you.
  • Useful analytics: WooCommerce comes with extensive and intuitive analytics that help you better understand how your customers interact with your brand.
