    Easy Paystack

    The goal of the Easy Paystack package is to make working with Paystack APIs as easy as possible for the newbie.

    Some Advantages

    1. While other packages are structured in a way that allows developers to include API keys within their code, with Easy Paystack you only need to set it up in your as an environment variable and you are good to go. This reduces the margin of error from copying and pasting your API keys all over the place. Also, this helps you build more secure apps and avoid the mistake of pushing your API keys to version control such as Github.

    2. The main code makes heavy use of async/await so you can access returned values with just about two lines of code. Hopefully, I or you can optimize this soon enough such that the promise is resolved from the end of the package and only one response is sent back: the success case or the error case.


    You are welcome to contribute to this package. However, you need to follow this convention:

    1. Kindly stick to the use of async/await

    2. Write a test for for the methods you contribute

    3. Write an example usage for the method you contribute and add it to the usage.js file

    4. Add your methods to the Paystack object to keep sync and maintain the naming convention. The naming convention is as below:


      For example, a method created to check for a user's BVN will be under the Verification group name. It will therefor be:


      This is not rigid. You can use appropriate shorter versions of the words as long as the meaning is not lost and users will be able to understand what it stands for and what your code does.

      ### Using the Package const Paystack = require('easy-paystack')

      const banks = Paystack.misc.listBanks()

      banks.then(data => console.log(data)) .catch(err => console.log(err))

      Result: You get the list of banks currently supported by Paystack

      ### Current Methods

      1. Transactions

        • Initialize transaction: transactions.initialize(amount, email)
        • Verify Transaction: transactions.verifyTrx(reference)
        • List Transactions: transactions.listTrx()
        • Fetch Transaction: transactions.fetchTrx(id)
      2. Verification

        • Verify BVN Match: verify.matchBVN((bvn, accountNumber, bankCode, firstName, lastName)
        • Resolve BVN: verify.resolveBVN(bvn)
        • Resolve Account Number: verify.resolveAccount(bankAccount, bankCode)
        • Resolve Card BIN: verify.resolveCardBin(bin)
      3. Miscellaneous

        • List Banks: misc.listBanks()
        • List Countries: misc.countries()

      ### Environment Settings Easy Paystack has been built such that you would not need to copy your public and private keys around. All you need to do is to create a .env file and add your keys like so:

      PAYSTACK_SECRET_KEY=sk_test_**************************************** PAYSTACK_PUBLIC_KEY=pk_test_****************************************

      You may also add your BVN and Card Bin like so when testing MY_BVN=************ CARD_BIN=******
