An All In One e-Commerce Solution
Zen Cart happens to be an online shop shopping cart solution system. It's put together in PHP, employing a MySQL database. Support is provided for many languages and currencies, and it is freely available under the GNU General Public License.
Zen Cart branched from osCommerce in the form of independent project in 2003. Beyond some cosmetic changes, the major differences between the two systems are found in Zen Cart's architectural modifications and additional included specifications inside its core.
There are hundreds of shopping cart programs available, but none come close to offering the level of options, features and support available with Zen Cart. Even the other commercial software applications have a hard time competing.
Building shopping cart application software has traditionally been an activity for a web site designer or employed IT professional, however as more decision makers elect to build their own web site lots of people are trying out turnkey solutions that require very little development or perhaps computer knowledge. Zen Cart’s principal claim to acclaim is its adaptability and user-friendliness.
