In addition, the startup also supports payments through mobile money transfer services. The startup claims over 17 000 organisations use its platform. Paystack charges 1.5% and 3.9% on local and international transactions, respectively.
Crunchbase estimates that the Lagos-based startup has raised up to $9.5-million in funding through five rounds since its launch. In 2016 the startup raised $1.3-million in seed funding from several investors including Comcast Ventures, Singularity Investments, and Tencent.
In a post on Twitter yesterday, Olubi said he was ” amazed at and proud of” what he, Akinlade and the Pasytack team have built since the startup was founded.
I am both amazed at and proud of what my co-founder @shollsman and I along with the rest of our very exceptional team have built in less than three years. So much that 2011 Ezra is having a hard time believing this is real. 💃💃💃 pic.twitter.com/SiXa1Kp46w
