You'll be able to very easily add your logo and PayPal address and start taking payments immediately. Here's how ...

These details should have been provided by your hosting company and you'll usually login by going to www.yourwebsite.com/cpanel

2. Click the Softaculous Icon



3. Find "OpenCart" in Softaculous
