15 Bestselling OpenCart Extensions for 2017

2017… what an adventure, right?

For us, the past 12 months were probably the most exciting we had so far.

The release of OpenCart 3.0 inspired us to use the chance and start making a lot of improvements and new features to extensions.

  • We've added 3.0.x support for half of our modules and still going strong with the other half as we speak.
     
  • We started our Video Academy and began working more closely with OpenCart on publishing more useful information for you.
     
  • The newest book OpenCart 2.x Tips and Tricks Vol. 3 was published and it was downloaded more than 3,000 times!
     
  • Another big step forward was the partnerships we built with members of the community and introducing new extensions by vendors in our store.

 

But enough memories. We’re here to talk about something else.

It’s time to see which were the most popular and bestselling OpenCart extensions during 2017.

These were the modules that most store owners preferred having in their stores, so we thought it would be interesting to share what we found.
 

Psst, spoiler alert: the winner is no surprise.
