Zen Cart started life in 2003 when a bunch of developers decided to take the code for OS Commerce and change things a little. Since 2003 it has undergone some rapid changes and development and is going from strength to strength with the development roadmap.
Zen Cart is open source shopping cart software and like WordPress, is free to download. But make no mistake, Zen Cart is something special as far as ecommerce is concerned and just because it’s free to download doesn’t mean that it hasn’t got the tools to do the job. In fact, it’s got more than enough tools and lots of backup to go with it.
Zen Cart is by no means easy to set up to the average person using a computer, but then with a complex shopping cart system that gives you all of what you want out of a shopping cart system and more, what would you expect?
Backup and support comes in the form of a forum where problems can be discussed and resolved, and customizations can be discussed. There’s a vast array of modules which work similar to WordPress plugins, the difference being that they have to be manually installed. So with all of this in mind it makes Zen Cart highly expandable.
It also ranks well in search engines allowing sales to be made very easily with some good quality search engine work, back links, and rss product feeds which can be submitted to various websites around the world that accept rss feeds. This includes Google who have a shopping search engine.
And that’s why we like to use it. We believe its one of the most advanced shopping cart systems around and does the job very well, and we have some highly skilled Zen Cart developers to thank for that through the Zen Cart team.
