Hello

Can someone please suggest which is the best Elavon payment gateway extension for opencart 3.0.1?

I found & installed a module ( https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=13638 ) , but looks like extension is useless, buggy and their support is pathetic.

I am looking for immediate solution.

Thank you

Is there a reason you can't use Stripe? Not available in your country perhaps?

If you can use Stripe, I recommend this extension.

So many people had their stripe account blocked and they are complaining loud on the web. Check it out before choosing this solution.

You should be able to use OpenCart's built-in RealEx or GlobalPayments extensions, they work fine for Elavon. These extensions come in 2 flavors: The redirect approach where customer is redirected to the payment gateway, e.g. of Elavon, to enter the card details. Or the hosted solution, where the customer stays on the OpenCart site and enters the card details there. The latter requires of course a SSL, and PCI-compliancy.

Another solution would be this commercial extension: https://www.opencart.com/index.php?rout ... n_id=33274
It uses a redirect to the payment gateway (so no worries about PCI compliancy on OpenCart), but this can be done in an iframe, giving the customer the impression of staying on the OpenCart site.
