How to let Swipe work with major e-commerce platforms


So, you want to accept payments on your e-commerce platform. You can download ready-made modules for most popular e-commerce platforms and install them with our step-by-step guides below.

  1. Opencart 1.5.x – excellent for Opencart veterans

With an Opencart 1.5x system, it is common to ask whether it makes sense to upgrade to Opencart 2.0x. Most of the time, it doesn’t. While Opencart 2.0+ user interface is more appealing to new users, for veterans moving from 1.5. To 2.0. is like starting a whole new store. This is why we offer an 1.5x module. On the back end 1.5. and 2.0 are similar, you can get them in one link below.

  1. Opencart 2.3+ – better for new Opencart users

If you are new to Opencart, the 2.0. Version is cleaner, more user friendly, and all themes are responsive by default. If you have to learn a new system anyway, you may as well start with the newest one.

  1. Magento 1.x – full control, endless features, lots of supporters

This is the established go-to system with the most features. Programmers and administrators have full control of both front and back end in Magento. It has a large supportive network of peers, boasts a large pool of functionality and extensions, is easily scalable and open-source. Surely, it may not be as intuitive or efficient as newer alternatives but it compensates with flexibility and reliability.
