Easy Access to Brazilian Online Payments for OpenCart Stores

OpenCart Module

OpenCart Module for PagBrasil


Unlike PagBrasil’s Shopify, WooCommerce, Magento and VTEX extensions that have been developed and are continuously upgraded internally, the module for OpenCart was created by an independent developer. To start using the module, apart from the installation, OpenCart-based businesses must sign up for a merchant account with PagBrasil in order to enable the Brazilian payment methods for their stores.


The module was originally created in 2016 and has recently been updated to be compatible with OpenCart 3. As of now, OpenCart merchants using the module have instant access to all local credit card labels provided by PagBrasil. The module is fully responsive, which means the checkout page adapts to any screen resolution, providing a better experience for payments on mobile devices.


PagBrasil’s OpenCart module can be obtained from this page and it has a cost of 39 GBP. The developer, Daniel Miara, also provides aid with installation for an extra cost of 10 GBP.
