Clearent Announces OpenCart Extension for Accepting eCommerce Payments

Easy installation and customizable design makes Clearent’s OpenCart payments extension a win for web developers.

Clayton, MO, December 19, 2015 --( Clearent, one of the fastest-growing payment processing companies in the U.S., today announced the release of its OpenCart extension for website developers. Clearent’s developer payment team has been working closely with web developers to build an easy to use shopping cart extension that enables them to securely accept payments through their OpenCart eCommerce websites. With its seamless design and simple set up, this extension is one of the most user-friendly payment gateways available on the market.

OpenCart is a powerful, open source shopping cart system that is designed to be feature rich and user friendly. OpenCart is free to use and features open source code; free downloads; the ability to add an unlimited number of categories, products, and manufacturers; and guest shopping and checkout for visitors who don’t want to register with the site.

Traditionally, website developers have had to work with outdated code, complicated integration steps, and unattractive payment forms. With Clearent’s full suite of payment solutions, web developers can now quickly and easily accept secure card payments on a multitude of eCommerce platforms while maintaining the site’s existing style and design. With the addition of the OpenCart extension, Clearent’s full suite of eCommerce payment solutions includes its very own Hosted “Pay Now” Buttons, as well as integrations through WordPress, Magento, ZenCart and other existing eCommerce platforms. Working alongside web developers, Clearent continues to add additional features to help alleviate the common headaches associated with integrating payments into eCommerce websites.

Another unique aspect of Clearent’s web developer offering is its incentive program. The program rewards users for referring merchants to Clearent, with recurring commission based on the merchant’s annual transaction volume. This commission program is unique in its industry and allows web developers to look at payments as another source of revenue. By providing developers with a share of the processing revenue, Clearent has essentially brought developers on board as partners, which is a strategy that has served Clearent very well in the past. As a company founded on building and nurturing its sales partners, this is the next logical step in the push to add digital payments to their already well-established payments platform.

Clearent's partners are excited about this new extension. When asked about his experiences with OpenCart and Clearent Barron Hilton, President of Global Web Design, said, "Clearent’s OpenCart extension is simple and easy to use. The website runs smoothly with Clearent’s payment system. The documentation provided by Clearent was concise and made installing the extension very easy.”
