Social Login for OpenCart 1.5.x

Social Login allows your users to connect with one click to your OpenCart 1.5.x shop by using their social network accounts. Gather rich demographic information (age, gender, phone numbers ...) about your users without requiring them to fill out any forms. Obtain pre-validated email addresses and increase your data quality.

Social Login seamlessly integrates into your OpenCart shop so that you and your users don't have to start from scratch.

Increase your registration rate

Social Login increases the user registration rate of your shop by simplifying the registration process. Get rid of long forms and complicated captchas by allowing new users to sign-up with their existing social network accounts.

Your existing users can furthermore link their regular account to one or more social networks and can then use these social network accounts to login. Eliminate the issues of forgotten usernames and passwords!

35+ Social Networks Supported: Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Yahoo, PayPal, Foursquare, OpenID, LiveJournal, Steam, Wordpress.com, StackExchange, Windows Live, Pinterest, Instagram, Disqus, Blogger, Github.com, Skyrock.com, VKontakte, Mail.ru ... View Datasheet

OpenCart 1.5.x : Setup Social Login

b. Setup the API connection handler

Click on the Autodetect Communication Settings button. You should receive a green success message if your server is able to communicate with our API. Your firewall must allow outbound requests on either port 80 or 443.

c. Enter your API credentials

To obtain your API credentials, please login to your OneAll account and open the page Site Settings \ API Settings & Credentials of a Site.

Fill out the API credentials in the OpenCart administration area and click on the Verify API Settings button. You should receive a green success message if your credentials are correct.

d. Setup the social networks

Enable the social networks that you would like to use by ticking the corresponding checkboxes.

Please note that many social networks require that the webmasters register their website before being able to use their services. To be able to use the plugin, you must therefore register your website. This process is straightforward and takes only a couple of minutes.

It has to be done only once for each provider and we will guide you through this process. To setup your providers, please login to your OneAll account, select a Site and click on Social Networks.

3. Help & Troubleshooting

a. I do not see Social Login in my OpenCart shop

First open the Social Login settings in your OpenCart administration area and make sure that the Social Login Status is set to Enabled. Then scroll down to the bottom of the settings page and look for the title Add Social Login to a position in your shop . Make sure to add Social Login to the positions where you want to display it.

b. The API communication does not seem to work correctly

Please make sure that your firewall does not block outbound requests on both ports 80 and 443. One of these ports must allow outgoing requests (from your server to ours) so that the plugin can establish a communication with our API.

If you have access to the console of your server you can test if outbound requests are allowed by using this command: telnet ping.api.oneall.com 443. If the port is open then you should obtain a result like this:

		~$ telnet ping.api.oneall.com 443
		Connected to ping.api.oneall.com.
		Escape character is '^]'
