Zen Cart - Open Source Software Makes Ecommerce Easy

In order for a website to be profitable, the e-commerce mechanism it implements must be easy to use, accurate, and functional. There are many ways to set this up, but the best way is to allow a third party program to help you.

Here is what it includes:

  • Shopping Cart that handles everything (including carts, shipping costs, prices, products, etc.)
  • Easy Administration/Management
  • Simple to set up
  • Allows for credit card payments without any special tweaks
  • Much more!

Zen cart allows you to add shopping to your existing website and walks you through the entire process, so there is no guesswork involved. You can help yourself with their support forums and info on the website, but they can also give you direct support if you need it.

Installing Zen Cart is a very straightforward procedure. It takes you one step at a time, so you can work at your own pace and get the results you need. It also has a handy alert system, so that if anything is not configured correctly during the setup, you will know right then.

There are Zen Cart Templates which allow you to design a site with a Zen Cart. However, the best sites are personalized and specially designed to match your particular niche. The best bet is to hire a designer (or do it yourself if you can). For those who don't have the time or money to do one of those two things, the templates are nice.

Whatever you are selling, Zen Cart makes it easy.
