SCA, Opencart and iSenseLabs Extension

What’s the status on SCA support for the the official Square extension for OpenCart? It’s written by iSenseLabs, presumably funded by Square. iSenseLabs seem to be in denial: “We haven’t receive an update on this topic from Square yet”

If SCA support isn’t forthcoming, ourselves and many others will eventually be forced to use another payment provider for which there’s support for a SCA compliant plugin. More on SCA and the December 2020 deadline.



Hey @Beaconzone welcome to the forums!

OpenCart creates their own integration, so it’s up to them to update their integration to include SCA functionality. As far as I’m aware, Square informed all of our partners about this when SCA was released within Square, which was June 2019, so I’m not clear on why OpenCart is saying they’re not aware of it.

I’ll follow-up with our internal partnerships team to find out why OpenCart is replying with that information, as it seems to be inaccurate as far as I know. I’ll let you know once I have more information.

I was informed by our partnerships team that OpenCart should already support SCA.

Hi Sjosey

Thanks for coming back.

Opencart does not create their own integration. Opencart does not already support SCA. There are 3 parties: Opencart, iSenseLabs (your official plugin developer) and yourselves. In the past, I believe Square commissioned iSenseLabs to create the plugin. They haven’t updated it to support SCA. While the Square API supports SCA, the official plugin doesn’t.
