🤝 Our Belief

Payments should be open, fast, reliable and affordable to serve the billions of people at scale.

Globally payment diversity has been growing at a rapid pace. There are hundreds of payment processors and new payment methods like BNPL, RTP etc. Businesses need to embrace this diversity to increase conversion, reduce cost and improve control. But integrating and maintaining multiple processors needs a lot of dev effort. Why should devs across companies repeat the same work? Why can't it be unified and reused? Hence, Hyperswitch was born to create that reusable core and let companies build and customise it as per their specific requirements.

✨ Our Values

  1. Embrace Payments Diversity: It will drive innovation in the ecosystem in multiple ways.
  2. Make it Open Source: Increases trust; Improves the quality and reusability of software.
  3. Be community driven: It enables participatory design and development.
  4. Build it like Systems Software: This sets a high bar for Reliability, Security and Performance SLAs.
  5. Maximise Value Creation: For developers, customers & partners.

🤍 Contributing

This project is being created and maintained by Juspay, South Asia's largest payments orchestrator/switch, processing more than 50 Million transactions per day. The solution has 1Mn+ lines of Haskell code built over ten years. Hyperswitch leverages our experience in building large-scale, enterprise-grade & frictionless payment solutions. It is built afresh for the global markets as an open-source product in Rust. We are long-term committed to building and making it useful for the community.

The product roadmap is open for the community's feedback. We shall evolve a prioritisation process that is open and community-driven. We welcome contributions from the community. Please read through our contributing guidelines. Included are directions for opening issues, coding standards, and notes on development.

  • We appreciate all types of contributions: code, documentation, demo creation, or some new way you want to contribute to us. We will reward every contribution with a Hyperswitch branded t-shirt.
  • 🦀 Important note for Rust developers: We aim for contributions from the community across a broad range of tracks. Hence, we have prioritised simplicity and code readability over purely idiomatic code. For example, some of the code in core functions (e.g., payments_core) is written to be more readable than pure-idiomatic.

Get updates on Hyperswitch development and chat with the community:

  • Discord server for questions related to contributing to hyperswitch, questions about the architecture, components, etc.
  • Slack workspace for questions related to integrating hyperswitch, integrating a connector in hyperswitch, etc.
  • GitHub Discussions to drop feature requests or suggest anything payments-related you need for your stack.

Please read the issue guidelines and search for existing and closed issues. If your problem or idea is not addressed yet, please open a new issue.
