e-Start Your Web Store with Zen Cart by Goh Koon Hoek, is an administrator and operator handbook for configuring and using Zen Cart™ to run an online store. Whether you are looking to supplement your current income, start a new business or extend your retail operations, this book will show you how to quickly set up a web store and start selling online.
There is a frequently asked question in the forum - “Where can I find the manual?” Well, we now have the answer - it’s here!
Checked for accuracy by the Development Team prior to publication, e-Start Your Web Store with Zen Cart contains the answer to just about every basic “How do I … ?” question that has appeared on the forums (and some that haven’t!) and is going to be an indispensable administrative tool for every Zen Cart store owner and anyone engaged in building Zen Cart stores for other people.
Goh Koon Hoek starts by giving a detailed guide on how to set up your own PC as a local server to allow you to install, test and build your Zen Cart store prior to putting it live, before going on to explain every admin setting in an easily understood way - for the first time in over 2 years of building Zen Cart stores, I finally understand Price Factor and Offset!
There are plenty of screenshots and examples throughout the book, aiding the excellent descriptions of the admin functions and settings, as well as guidance on template creation. The latter is aimed at beginners and is appropriately at a basic level but there is certainly enough information to help you make your store look different from other Zen Carts.
The Table of Contents is logically laid out, with chapter headings and sub-headings aligned very closely with the admin menu headings and sub-headings, so it’s fairly easy to find things; just remember that if you come across a setting in your Zen Cart admin that you want more information about (e.g. One Time Factor) you need to be aware of the general area you’re working in – in this case, Attributes.
Everybody with a Zen Cart store needs this book – my copy will be by my keyboard for quick reference when asked those questions that I really ought to know the answers to!
