Openbucks launches Magento plugin



Openbucks is a payment gateway that enables online merchants to accept cash and retailer gift cards as a form of payment from consumers who do not use bank accounts or credit cards to transact online. Founded in 2011, we envision a world where online payments are affordable, safe and available to the millions of consumers who are excluded from e-commerce because they do not use credit cards or bank accounts. We are accomplishing this vision through our partnership with CVS/Pharmacy and Dollar General retailer stores. We have 25,000+ Openbucks servicing payment locations in the U.S. and over 2,000 integrated merchants, PSP's and aggregators. With a zero chargeback guarantee to the merchant and no fees to the consumer, we are the most convenient alternative payment solution in the U.S.

The Openbucks extension gives Magento merchants a method of accepting cash payments. For example, a customer can go to any CVS/Pharmacy location, purchase a CVS gift card, and use it to complete an online purchase at your Magento store. From your checkout, the customer simply selects to pay with “Cash / Gift Cards”. The customer is redirected to the Openbucks payment platform to choose their payment option (CVS or Dollar General) and enters their card / PIN number when prompted. Openbucks collects funding information, completes the transaction and sends a payment notification (postback) to Magento. The payment status of the order is updated and the delivery of goods can be completed.
