Great cart, but not very beginner friendly.

2018-03-10

Pros

Once you get it set up, adding categories and products are fairly easy, just a bit time consuming.

Cons

I run my own social network, and I couldn't set up ZenCart myself.

This is a great software when building new eCommerce web site.

2017-11-17

Pros

Zen Cart will automatically detect the new created files and use it to run.

Cons

At first, it is really difficult to understand the layout of the software and where to locate them. But as soon as you get used to it, it will be easily.

Great Open Source Shopping Cart!

2017-06-15

Pros

If a potential customer calls and wants to know if their order went through online (because in reality it did not), you can actually see where the breakdown happened & what they had in their cart even if they were shopping as a guest.

Cons

Requires a good amount of tech knowledge. If you are not tech savvy or don't have someone that is, then this is not the way to go. You will only get support through the forums & "tickets". There is no phone support.

Just what I needed for small, straightforward sales.

2017-06-08

Pros

I will always choose an open source option first if it is functional. Zen cart does everything I need .

Cons

While it's not really a drawback, you need to make sure you know what your doing and can install Zen cart properly on your site.
