Realex Payments, one of Europe’s fastest growing payment solution providers announced a new partnership with OpenCart. The deal sees Realex Payments and OpenCart, a leading open-source e-commerce software platform that powers hundreds of thousands of stores, launch a one-stop solution for merchant online payment processing.

Realex Payments, along with UK development agency Welford Media and OpenCart, will incorporate a new core OpenCart platform with fully integrated order management functionality, fraud tools and dynamic currency conversion.

“Realex Payments is excited to release this new core OpenCart integration that will offer merchants a robust, complete and flexible e-commerce solution. Merchants who use the Realex Payments module with OpenCart 2.0 will benefit from a market leading product suite, a fully integrated order management system and a store that is fully responsive out of the box. We selected Welford Media to build our module to ensure that we offer the best OpenCart integration in the market.” Gary Conroy, COO at Realex Payments.

“Working with Realex Payments on the integration into OpenCart has been a pleasure from the start. They have adopted the latest technologies from the internet to provide an extremely versatile, secure and effective payment solution for any merchant. The combination of features like the Dynamic Currency Conversion and the responsive Hosted Payment Page provide merchants with a market leading payment platform to help there e-commerce store grow.” Gareth Christian Lim, Director at Welford Media.

Merchants can take payments via Realex Payments’ fully responsive hosted payment page or onsite Application Program Interface (API) payment form built into OpenCart’s one-page checkout. Both ensure a fast and seamless user experience for customers. Transactions are processed by Realex Payments, in full PCI compliance.
Both the Hosted Payment Page and API modules support a number of fraud management features. Transactions can be channelled through 3DSecure for extra fraud protection. Before dispatching, merchants can check the security results of the transaction, 3DSecure, Card Verification Number checking (CVN), Address Verification Service (AVS) and Realex Payments’ unique fraud scoring to help prevent chargebacks and fraudulent transactions.
