Team Member roles on Paystack

The Team tab on the Settings page allows you to add multiple users who can access your Paystack dashboard, with varying access levels.

The Different Team Members

The Business Owner also falls under this category. When the business is set up on Paystack for the first time, the user who created the business is automatically assigned the role of the Admin. This comes with the ability to add users and assign their roles.

While multiple users can be listed as the Admin, there can only be one user designated as a Business Owner at a time. The Business Owner role can be transferred at anytime from one person to another. Changing the Business Owner to another administrator will confer all previous access rights to the new Business Owner.
