Zen Cart was initially created as an offspring on the OS Commerce open source shopping cart.  In the early 2000’s, Zen Cart quickly grew to become one of the big three open source shopping carts.  As technology progressed, Zen Cart became a stable and successful platform for ecommerce.  With flexibility in the system design and the easy of templating, Zen Cart enables advances shopping carts and immersive store experiences.  In addition to the ease of front-end development, the open source nature of Zen Cart makes all the internals of the system available for modification. 

While Zen Cart provides a comprehensive shopping cart in the stock distribution, a variety of extensions are available to help add additional functionality to the cart.  From extensions for payment processing, to order notifications, to marketing and sales tools, part of Zen Cart’s power lies in the large variety of open source add-ons available from the community.

Developing a shopping cart in Zen Cart generally starts with a discovery phase, to review all the relevant items that will be listed in the store, discuss back-end processing and how shipping and payments will be handled, and creating an effective workflow from purchase through shipping.  A key element of the site design is the store’s usability – a more effective interface generally correlates to more in-store sales.  Additionally, it’s crucial to capture user attention on the home page, and steer toward enticing products that will lead to more sales.
