OpenCart is a free, user-friendly and open-source shopping trolley that allows you to quickly install templates and modules to extend the shopping trolley's offerings. The Google Checkout module for OpenCart is different than other OpenCart payment gateways. The Google Checkout module allows your customers to place their order and make payment without creating an account or logging into their account on your website. Installing the Google Checkout module requires that you have a Google Checkout merchant account.
