The PHP plugin should be deployed by your web developer or by Sellercloud Support.

  1. Place the DLL plugin on your server.
  2. Obtain FTP credentials.
  3. Place the PHP plugin on the FTP connected to your website. Deployment instructions are provided in the zipfile. You can also find the instruction link for OpenCart on the Plugins webpage.

Once the plugins have been deployed, you can enable your OpenCart authentication:
