Introducing the new Paystack app for Shopify

We’re thrilled to announce the new Paystack app for Shopify which allows you to continue receiving payments seamlessly on your Shopify Store.

In addition, you can now initiate refunds directly from Shopify and have them processed via Paystack automatically. This makes it even easier to reconcile transactions and ensures that you’re refunded additional Shopify transaction fees.

Paystack helps businesses in Africa get paid by anyone, anywhere in the world. This is why we integrated with Shopify in 2016 to allow merchants collect payments via Paystack on their Shopify store. It’s been exciting to watch our merchants’ Shopify businesses continue to grow.

Shopify recently made a few changes to how third-party payments apps work on the platform, which required all payments apps to rebuild new apps for the Shopify App Marketplace.

We’re excited to announce that the new Paystack app for Shopify meets Shopify’s updated requirements! 🎉

What’s in the box?

With the new Paystack app for Shopify, you’ll continue to enjoy modern, frictionless payments, multiple payment channels, advanced fraud detection systems, detailed reporting for easy reconciliation, and more.
