OverviewBack to top
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. 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.

Security & PCI Compliance
Upon checkout, customers are redirected to the Openbucks payment website. The customer enters their payment information directly into our secure environment so that the web shop never comes into contact with the customers payment data. Once the payment process is complete, customers will be redirected back to your store. No customer data is ever entered into, or stored on, the Magento server. Payment data is closed-loop only, thus outside of the scope of PCI compliance.
