Selling on Google blogger blog can be a really difficult thing to do since the blogging platform does not provide blogger eCommerce plugin such as Woocommerce for WordPress to add shop to blogger.

A good solution was to sell on blogger with PayPal which seems to be an impossible task for Nigerian bloggers dues to PayPal’s limitations.

Well, good news, Nigerian bloggers on the blogspot platform, can now easily sell on their blog using Paystack payment gateway. All you have to do is connect paystack to your blogger blogspot blog and you can start selling.

What is Paystack?

Paystack is a Nigerian owned but UK based online payment processor, that helps online businessmen, process payments for goods and services.
