    Here's a partial list. Pardon the lack of formatting...my fingers are tired of typing

    Allows customers to shop your store 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365+ days a year!
    Easily keep your product/catalog updated -- no HTML coding required to add, delete, or modify products.
    Works on the popular combination of PHP and MySQL technologies
    Secure -- no one but your administrative personnel can access your customer/catalog data
    Easy to install -- our helpful installation program guides you easily through the setup process
    User frontend is validated to XHTML 1.0 Transitional
    Advanced Template System using stylesheets and images
    Any PHP coding changes can be protected during upgrades by using the built-in override protection system
    Switching from one installed template to another is as simple as a couple of clicks in the Admin
    Merchandise Pricing options -- Single and Multiple items can be put on Sale. Sale options include Percentage-off, Fixed Amount off, New Price, etc. Sales can include or exclude product attributes. You can add or exclude a discount from a Special. You can put a whole category or the entire store on sale!
    Products can be marked as Free, or "Call for Price"
    Products can be marked as "Featured" for specific highlighting/attention.
    Products can be linked and/or copied to multiple categories
    Minimum or Maximum Quantities and Units - You can sell 1 per customer, or require at least 4 and in multiples of 2. You can set requirements on a per-product basis.
    Quantity Discounts can be configured per-product for varying pricing levels or quantity levels.
    Product Attributes can be added, either as Radio buttons, Checkboxes, Drop-down lists, Text Boxes, File Uploads, File Downloads, and more. Attribute Options can upcharge the price of an item, and an item can have its price completely controlled by attributes. Attributes can be configured as "read only" so as to provide a Features List.
    One-Time Fees can be added to products via attributes
    Attributes also support Text Pricing, such as price-per-word or price-per-letter for personalizing
    Attributes can show image/color swatches
    Store layout can be controlled in great detail simply by switching settings in the Admin area. Choose your side column and box widths, Bread Crumb Separator, which Sideboxes you want to appear where on the page, enable/disable links in various places.
    Entire categories of products (or individual products) can be enabled/disabled with just a few clicks
    Sort order of products is easily controlled in the admin area
    Integrate with phpBB so that your support forum login passwords match your Zen Cart shop.
    If you need to take your site offline for a period of maintenance, you can do it easily by posting advance notices, as well as a friendly Down For Maintenance page that's also Search-Engine friendly. Webmaster and WebDesigner can specify IP addresses to override maintenance and still access the site for testing.
    You can send administrative emails on most customer shopping activities to various administrators as desired. Email addresses are protected from abuse, as they are not displayed on-screen. The Contact Us page can be configured to support multiple destinations, such as Sales, Technical Support, Webmaster, and so on.
    Nearly every piece of information about your products can be controlled in the Admin areas, giving you the ability to fine-tune how your products and services appear to your customers. Features and options can be enabled/disabled quickly and easily.
    Multiple items can be added to the shopping cart by simply entering quantities and click Add
    The Product Type feature allows you to customize information fields and display format for different products differently. Products for sale vs Documents for viewing, vs Music Downloads, and the list goes on.
    You can add multiple images to your products, in small/medium/large format. Popups are available if desired for viewing of larger images.
    A verification for Agreement to the Terms of Service has been added for compliance with new laws regarding privacy and disclosure.
    CVV2 card verification number support is available for compliance with most Merchant Agreements. This feature is enabled/disabled in the Admin

    HTML-style email supported

    What exactly are you looking for, and why?

    You can always download the ZIP and look at the SQL file in the /zc_install folder to view the SQL schema.
