ZenCart the overlooked ecommerce gem
ZenCart is often overlooked when people choose the ideal platform to build their online shop on. We think this is a shame because ZenCart is a robust PCI compliant platform and one we have been using for many years. You do need some degree of code knowledge to use ZenCart effectively as it comes with various plugins but they need installing manually.
The history of ZenCart
Zencart was born as a “fork” of the once popular OsCommerce back in 2003, the developers of ZenCart wanted to take the project in a different direction than OsCommerce so they took the current code and started a fresh with it. Since 2003 ZenCart has been actively developed by the core development team into something seperate from OsCommerce – it’s more secure and in our opinion easier to work with (we have developed websites on both platforms)Zencart development has slowed over the last few years but that maybe because of the technical difficulties in keeping their PCI compliance (something they are very proud of) but the community forums over at ZenCart are still active with users and developers all pulling together. Sure there are newer systems available with fancy effects etc but the core of ZenCart is solid and we can sure get the best out of it.
Examples of ZenCart websites we have built for clients.
