As part of our Commerce efforts, we're on a mission to give African creators access to the world-class tools they need to bring ideas to market.

This is why we're thrilled to be one of the first payment platforms in Africa to officially partner and integrate directly with Wix, a leading ecommerce platform. With over 170 million users worldwide, Wix provides businesses with all the professional tools they need to promote and sell products and services online.

Before now, businesses in Ghana and Nigeria had to go through complex workarounds to get paid on their Wix sites. Using Paystack, you can now accept payments in Cedis, Naira, as well as other international currencies such as USD, from anyone, anywhere in the world.

Shareable Takeaway
Paystack has announced one of the first direct integrations in Africa with Wix, a popular platform for building professional websites.

Sell more online with Wix

Wix offers businesses of all sizes the tools they need to build professional websites, without knowing how to code.

With Wix’s innovative drag and drop website builder, you can start from scratch or choose from over 500 designer-made templates. Of course, if you do know how to code and want to create more custom websites, you can add advanced functionality to your site with Corvid and use Editor X.

Depending on your business type, Wix also has lots of ready to go solutions to choose from. Paystack merchants can now collect payments through the following Wix apps:

  • Wix Stores: Wix Stores gives you all the tools you need to create a sleek, professional online store and grow your ecommerce business.
  • Wix Bookings: Wix Bookings offers a complete online scheduling software which allows clients to book appointments and services, and pay online.
  • Wix Events: With Wix Events, you can create events, list them on your site, manage RSVPs and guestlists, and sell tickets.
  • Wix Music: Wix Music gives you everything you need to list, promote and sell your music commission-free.
  • Wix Videos: With Wix Videos, you can showcase your videos, engage your visitors and monetise your content!

Please note: it is currently not possible to collect payments through Paystack for the following apps - Wix Hotels, Wix Restaurants, and Wix Pricing Plans (recurring payments).
