Hi Community, 

I wanted to know if I can use an African payment platforms like PayStack or Flutterwave with RevenueCat. I've only found tutorials that use Stripe which doesn't work here.

Thank you.

Hello, 

Stripe acquired Paystack last year which means they started processing payments in Ghana, Nigeria and they are also live in South Africa now. They are offering cards, bank transfers and mobile money. 

More about their Africa expansion here: https://stripe.com/sessions/2021/emea

At RevenueCat we support everything that Stripe supports, however they are also facing limitations when it comes to recurring payments in Africa. 

Currently recurring payments in Africa are only possibly via cards as far as we know. Last time we check Mpesa and MTN were working on a recurring piece to their Mobile Money services however it hasn’t been released yet. 

I hope this helps a bit, let me know if you have any comment or further questions.
