Zen Cart Consulting guarantees our total commitment to our clients’ projects, unrivalled communication with our clients before and during the implementation process, as well as timely and cost-effective project delivery.

But what happens after the project implementation and rollout?

Zen Cart Consulting offers its clients our very fair and generous ‘Priority Support Plan’ (PSP) – clients only pay for Support on a time-used basis, rather than being billed a monthly Support Contract fee.

How About A WordPress Alternative To Zen Cart?

Most people know that WordPress is by far and away the most popular blogging platform in the world. In fact, as of August 2013, over 100 million websites use WordPress for their blogging solution.

But WordPress is only for creating and publishing Blogs – not for selling products, right?

Wrong! Sure, we are heavily invested in Zen Cart and apps like Zen Cart are a great and flexible way to have a web store that is both affordable and easy to maintain and customize but…

Make More Sales ! Enhance Your Curb Appeal With A Professional Template

Creating a successful Online Store basically comes down to 2 things :

New Module – XFreeStyle – Lets Customer Pay Variable Amounts

XFreeStyle allows Admin to assign specific products to have a price field that the customer can enter an amount in, rather than normal Zen Cart pricing.

Use cases might be – you need to bill for a service or product where the fee or price is variable – such as – a shipping overage charge; maybe you need to bill a client for a Project Deposit; maybe you are a Charity soliciting variable donation amounts

Zen Cart fixed product pricing will not permit the flexibility required in these scenarios
