Zen Cart is yet another free open source ecommerce platform that Submit Digitial supports for search engine optimization. Zen Cart is based on the osCommerce platform, but has been developed independently since 2003. Zen Cart has been developed using PHP and MySQL programming languages, which Submit Digital’s SEO specialists are experts in. The main differences between Zen Cart and osCommerce are that Zen Cart is a CSS-based template system and has additional features included. Another thing that sets Zen Cart apart from osCommerce is that it is easier to set up and install.
Zen Cart is another option for businesses that want to design and set up their own website by themselves without the help of an IT professional. Zen Cart does a pretty good job at making the initial set up easy and smooth, although, you do need access to a server in order to host the installation. Zen Cart includes many must-have features, however, it lacks third party extensions and modules to add support, features, and function beyond the initial installation. There are some additional modules, but nothing on the level of Magento or Prestashop.
