The Paystack Topup feature

The Top Up feature allows you pay money into your Paystack Balance, for the purpose of using the Transfers feature to send it to another bank account. The Top Up feature is only available to Paystack Registered Businesses.

NB: Paystack Starter Businesses do not have access to the Top Up feature on the Dashboard. If you wish to make use of the Top Up feature, you can upgrade your business to a Paystack Registered Business, where you're required to submit your business registration document by the CAC and your business corporate account. Click  Here to upgrade your business now.

Reasons you might want to use this feature include:

  • You might want to quickly pay vendors
  • You might want to quickly pay salaries

Since your money is already inside Paystack, many merchants find that it makes sense to send it directly from Paystack, rather than moving it first into a bank, and then sending it from the bank account.
