The world of e-commerce is always evolving and it is vital for businesses to keep pace in order to succeed. At Razorpay, we have always innovated to deliver the best payment solutions for e-commerce businesses, enabling them to stay ahead of the curve. 

When the latest version of OpenCart, an open-source e-commerce platform powering close to 500,000 entrepreneurs all over the world, was recently launched, we ensured we built a solution tailored specifically to those needs. 

OpenCart is an open-source e-commerce platform which powers close to 500,000 entrepreneurs all over the world. The Razorpay payment gateway plugin ensures that shoppers on OpenCart websites enjoy a best-in-class checkout experience. For merchants, this means higher conversion rates, to go with a smooth onboarding experience and powerful payment tracking. 

OpenCart 4, the latest version of OpenCart, brings with it several updates, making it easier for merchants to manage their online stores. There is a redesigned user interface that simplifies using essential features, and a new design optimized for mobile devices.


Razorpay’s OpenCart Payment Gateway Plugin 

In order to offer OpenCart businesses a superior payment experience, Razorpay offers its official payment gateway plugin for the OpenCart platform. The plugin handles end-to-end payments on OpenCart 4 seamlessly, ensuring online stores don’t miss a beat. Businesses can accept payments across all browsers and via 100+ payment modes, including UPI, domestic and international credit cards, net banking, EMI, Paylater and a range of wallets such as JioMoney, Mobikwik, Airtel Money, FreeCharge, Ola Money, and PayZapp.

Integrating the Razorpay OpenCart payment plugin is quick and easy, so businesses can start accepting payments in minutes. A smoother checkout experience, optimized for all devices and screen sizes, helps boost conversion rates. Customers can also subscribe to products now, making recurring payments on the store.

The new plugin is compatible with the OpenCart 4 environment, and offers all the features of the existing version.  

A note: Businesses that migrate to OpenCart 4 from OpenCart 3 will have to download the new Razorpay plugin for OpenCart 4. The Razorpay plugin for OpenCart 3 will not support OpenCart 4.
