Order Totals are Opencart extensions that will be displayed to a customer when they checkout. For example, an order total may be for a store credit, coupon or shipping costs. These totals may be displayed in a separate screen or line depending the total involved.  Note that not every order total option that defaults within OpenCart will appear to a customer during checkout and setup will vary from extension to extension used for Order Totals.  The following tutorial will review the common Order Totals used during checkout.

The ORDER TOTALS are used to summarize information in an easy to read format.  They may involve different values that a customer may obtain as a gift or be required to pay because there is a specific extra cost. Order totals differ in type and format and are loaded into the OpenCart as an extension.  Customers will see order totals in the invoice when checking out with a purchase.  In the screenshot below, the SUB-TOTAL is a type of ORDER TOTAL being displayed:
