What is OpenCart:


OpenCart is an open-source online store management system. It is PHP-based, using a MySQL database and HTML components. Support is provided for different languages and currencies. It is freely available under the GNU General Public License. As of May 2016, 342,000 websites were using OpenCart. OpenCart is similar to Woocommerce and Shopify.


Merchants with an OpenCart Store using OpenCart for their online shop can accept many different Payment Methods using the Peach Payments OpenCart plugin extension. Our OpenCart plugin supports different languages and currencies (currencies available will depend on your account with Peach).


Payment Methods like:

  • VISA, Mastercard
  • EFT Secure
  • InstantEFT by Peach
  • Mobicred
  • Scan to Pay
  • ZeroPay and many more to come!


See the below example of the Peach Checkout Page customers using your OpenCart store would be redirected to for payment:
