Stripe now available in Kenya, South Africa, Ghana and Nigeria

Stripe, the leading online payment processing platform, is now available in Kenya, South Africa, Ghana, and Nigeria. Stripe’s presence in Africa was solidified with the acquisition of Nigeria’s Paystack. This move not only expanded Stripe’s footprint in Africa but also demonstrated its commitment to supporting the growth of the digital economy in Africa. 

Paystack will continue to operate independently, growing their operations in Africa and adding more international payment methods. Over time, Paystack’s capabilities will be embedded in Stripe’s Global Payments and Treasury Network (GPTN), a programmable platform for global money movement that currently spans 42 countries.
