If any files need to upload manually for a new extension, then you can manually upload the files of your new extension(e.g. language,payment,shipping etc) to your_joomla_site_path\components\com_jcart folder

If you want to display this extension as a Joomla left/right side module then you need to follow the following steps too

1. Go to Joomla Admin Panel modules section
2. Click on "New" button
3. Select Module type: "jCart new custom module"
4. Now give your new installed opencart Extension ID, Extension module_id and Title and Save it.

Extension ID: Extension id is same as extension's file name. You can add "_multiple_columns" with extension filename too to display more products in a single row.
Extension module_id: If any extension has multiple instances with same file name then provide module id
To get Extension ID(i.e. filename), Extension module_id, go to jCart Admin Panel Modules section(jCart Admin Panel Left Side Menu: Extensions->Extensions->Modules) and make sure your required module is installed and enabled there.
Then go to edit page of that module and look at the URL in browser. You will get the extension id(ie. filename) and module id from there.
For example if your URL is something like this
then Extension ID is: featured
For multiple columns for this module just add "_multiple_columns" at the end as follows: featured_multiple_columns)
If URL is something like this
then Extension module_id is: 28
