Klarna
To get a flexible set of payment options quickly provisioned on your online store, Klarna is ideal. They offer the usual payment options and also additional buy now pay later options which give the customer a full selection of choices. With Klarna you can do one integration and get access to all of these.

OpenCart
OpenCart is best suited for business owners looking to sell their products online. Building an OpenCart website requires no or minimal coding knowledge. Being a self-hosted system, it is not recommended for people who have no hosting plan or have no experience in hosting websites so it would be better to go with another platform that is hosted elsewhere.

  • OpenCart is very flexible in its native ability to work with a wide variety of payment processors and payment gateways.
  • OpenCart makes it both fast and easy to setup and configure a new shopping cart website, especially if you use one of the pre-made templates.

OpenCart
  • It's a very buggy platform. Although OpenCart developers release new versions time to time after fixing bugs every version of OpenCart has a different type of bug.
  • It should increase the security of the platform.

Honestly, when consulting my clients, I would always recommend WooCommerce over OpenCart. Although I've had clients that had existing OpenCart websites and they were fairly happy with them, making additions/changes/customizations from a developer standpoint was not the easiest compared to other systems. For very large shops, I always recommend Magento over anything else.

Return on Investment
Klarna
  • They take a fee, larger than other systems do, so I do lose some money there.
  • I make more sales than I would without the payment option through Klarna.
