Signature hash does not match error how to fix or how to connect opencart to marketplace?
Opencart, starting from version 3, provides the ability to directly connect to marketplace via admin panel. This feature greatly simplifies the installation of various modules, both free and paid, which allows you to install additional extensions for your store in one click.
The first attempt to connect my store on opencart to the marketplace ended with an error: Signature hash does not match. I had to search the internet to solve this issue, but the result was the same. Later, I found the solution myself, and it was very simple.
If you have already completed all the connection steps 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 ? ).

Marketplace opencart and localhost
So the answer to the question. Does opencart marketplace work on localhost for example store development? Yes.
You need to add the name of your localhost to get the key.
We recommend that you back up the store before installing extensions.
