I feel like i was misled about this book and about Zen Cart. I just spent weeks building a new website with the intention to add a shopping cart at a later date. The service I'm hosting through has a fantastico link to install zen cart. Nothing was said that Zen cart has to be the whole website. I'd almost rather forget having a "store" than face having to build a whole new site just to add a shopping cart. Your book doesn't give any information about installing zen cart to an existing site. Feel like I wasted my money, because it does NOT tell me how to do what I need to do. For a retired person, $60 is a big hit in the wallet. I am not a computer tech, just a 61 year old retired lady who loves computers but does not know HTML. I make custom jewelry, have to do my own photography, and build and maintain the website as well as doing about 25 craft shows during the year. Thought Zen Cart was supposed to be easy. Wrong, on that, too.
This is as comprehensive a guide to setting up and managing a on-line store with Zen Cart as is possible in 400 or so pages. Whatever your level of experience, there will be useful information in here. Even after 4 years of building e-commerce sites professionally with Zen Cart, I keep a copy close to hand and dip into it regularly. I also recommend it is as the standard reference work to all my e-commerce clients. Although originally written for Zen Cart 1.3.7, it's valid for 1.3.8 too and a download of minor updates is available from the author's website. Highly recommended for getting the most out of your Zen Cart, and saving hours of time searching for "how to" answers?
"Great Investment" I've been trying to set up my own store with very little experince. I was very interested to see if this book could finally get me started, as most resources seem to jump to the more technical stuff, before addressing the simple stuff a beginner may need help with...like creating a test web server. This book got me farther than any other resource. It was WELL worth the investment.
