ZenCart Tutorial Videos

If we have installed a shopping cart site for you, it is probably ZenCart and you are going to want to watch these videos! They will take you step-by-step through the things you need to know to operate your new site.

Just click on a topic and the video will load into a pop-up window (make sure you don’t have pop-ups switched off or you won’t see them) – you can come back and watch them whenever you need to. We hope you find them useful.

The things that you will need to do as part of the maintenance of your new ecommerce store are:

  1. Adding categories
  2. Adding products
  3. Adding product attributes
  4. Putting products on special
  5. Managing customers
  6. Sending out a newsletter
  7. Sending out email

At some stage, you may want to change the way some bits of your site look. These videos will help:

  1. Editing your home page
  2. Editing left and right columns
  3. Managing your banners

When we build and install your site, we will take care of the following things for you. We provide these videos just in case you want to change anything yourself down the track. Most of you will not need to watch these videos though. if you are going to change the configuration of your store – be careful and always test the results! You may find that one small change has ramifications for all your customer’s orders in ways that you had not anticipated!

  1. Installing Zencart
  2. Configuring your store
  3. Configuring currency
  4. Adding payment modules
  5. Adding shipping modules
  6. Configuring sales tax

Some people using Internet Explorer seem to have trouble with some of these videos (though we have tried to replicate the problem on IE and cannot). If you are having trouble we highly recommend you download the free Mozilla browser called Firefox. It is a much better browser than Internet Explorer, and you will find your web experience much improved. You can download it here.

Don’t forget the resources of the ZenCart community – www.zencart.org. You can get tips, advice and download modules to customise your shopping cart.

If you need a hand at any time or want to make significant changes to the way your site works, let us know – we’d love to help.
