Ecommerce made easy with OpenCart and Peach Payments

OpenCart is an open-source, free to use ecommerce platform with zero monthly fees. It’s got all the bells and whistles that you’d expect from a pay-to-use platform, such as user-friendly product management, sales analytics, and order management, to name a few. Its SEO optimized design takes the legwork out of getting your business noticed, and its free extensions and themes are primed to impress your new page visitors.


“Its friendly interface and any beginner can make their online store; we can easily edit his core files, many free themes and extensions available.” -


With Peach Payments’ easy to integrate OpenCart plugin, you combine all the features of OpenCart with user-focused checkout that boosts your sales conversion rate. With low fees and a wide range of payment methods, your OpenCart store becomes a polished platform that users love. 

Unlimited products that pop

Whether you’re selling one product or a thousand, OpenCart adapts to your needs. It puts no limit on the amount of products you can list, and provides user-friendly tools to help your customers find exactly what they’re looking for.


Your product range can be organized into unlimited categories that makes your store easy to navigate. Products can then be further differentiated with option selections like size, colour, length or height, giving your customers a full functionality shopping experience.


OpenCart makes product hunting even easier for your customers with built-in search and filter functionality. If a searched keyword doesn’t get them to the product they’re looking for, OpenCart offers a filter tool with selectable attributes that helps them hone in on exactly what they want.
