There are many ways to create a website. Depending on the focus and intention, you can use different available tools and platforms that are already made by good programmers out there. This blog site ( for example is made from WORDPRESS, a powerful platform made from PHP, and specially designed for making blogs and articles.

In this article, I am introducing the use of Zen Cart™ platform.

Zen Cart™ is the revised version of OS Commerce Platform. It is free, user-friendly, open source shopping cart software. The ecommerce web site design program is being developed by a group of like-minded shop owners, programmers, designers, and consultants that think ecommerce web design could be and should be done differently.

Some shopping cart solutions seem to be complicated programming exercises instead of responding to users’ needs, Zen Cart™ puts the merchants and shoppers requirements first. Similarly, other shopping cart software programs are nearly impossible to install and use without an IT degree, Zen Cart™ can be installed and set-up by anyone with the most basic web site building and computer skills.

There are hundreds of shopping cart programs available, but none come close to offering the level of options, features and support available with Zen Cart™. Even the commercial programs have a hard time competing.

The best thing with this program is that this platform is FREE. You can download the Zen Cart platform in their website:

In my next article, I will teach you how to install this Zen Cart platform, as well as changing its templates, setting up the e-mail options and many others.
