This code accurately converts USD to BTC using the up-to-the-minute MtGox average. It is completely self contained and requires no cron jobs or external hardware other than a properly configured bitcoind server. Every order creates a new bitcoin address for payment and gives it a label corresponding to the order_id of the order. It installs like any other OpenCart plugin and it is completely integrated with OpenCart.


OpenCart Bitcoin was first made available on September 21, 2012[4].
