How to connect opencart 3 to marketplace

Opencart since version 3 has provided the ability to directly connect to its own marketplace through the admin panel. This feature greatly simplifies the installation of various modules, both free and paid, thus giving you the opportunity to install additional extensions for your store with only one click.

The first time I tried to connect my opencart store to the marketplace, it failed with an error: Signature hash does not match. I had to seriously search for solutions to this issue, but the result was the same. Later, I found the solution myself, and it was very simple.

If you have already gone through all the stages of connection in the marketplace and you get an error: Signature hash does not match then go to section ( Signature hash does not match how to fix ? ).
