This installation guide will help you install the Formilla Edge Module on your OpenCart store in an instant. With Formilla Edge, you’re able to communicate with customers using automatic email messages, and by displaying in-app (popup) messages to customers on your website. You can even enable Formilla Live Chat with a few clicks to chat with visitors and generate sales leads right from your website. Check out the full list of features to learn more.

  1. First, download the Formilla Edge module for your OpenCart 2.x store from the OpenCart extension directory. Once downloaded, unzip and merge the “admin” and “catalog” directories into your corresponding OpenCart admin and catalog directories. Next, navigate to your OpenCart Administration panel and hover over the puzzle icon to choose Modules. Click the + sign to install the Formilla Edge module as seen below.edge-opencart-tut1
