Zen Cart Features
Zen Cart is an all in one package, giving you an easy to use shopping cart with many powerful features for selling your goods or services online.
Adding shopping cart software has traditionally been a task for a web developer or hired IT specialist, but as more business owners opt to developer their own web site many are turning to turnkey solutions that require minimal programming or even computer knowledge. Zen Cart’s primary claim to fame is its flexibility and user-friendliness. Its Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)-based template design means even relative novices in the world of computers can quickly set up a professional looking e-commerce website.
In addition, the software supports dozens of currencies, payment methods and languages, as well as a host of plug-ins that let you customize the look and performance of your online shop, generate detailed performance and customer service reports, and even give discounts based on customer age, affiliation, or cart total.
Localized tax information, customer account access, and shipping information can all be configured from the main control panel, making setup and maintenance a snap. There’s even a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor for editing templates, so you can drag-and-drop to customize your pages without entering a single line of code.
Zen Cart has a bundle of powerful features, including:
- Multiple language support
- Unlimited category depth
