ZenCart Vs Shopify: Which is Better? 

Personal preference plays a large role in setting up an ecommerce website and you want to provide customer satisfaction 100% of the time. Our team at JS Web prefer Zen Cart as we believe some of their features are far better than what Shopify and similar sites can offer, including:

Personalisation and Adaptability

By choosing to use Zen Cart, you’re choosing to have full control over the code to personalise to your specific business needs. This degree of adaptability opens the door for more extensive customisation options compared to Shopify – which has many more limitations when it comes to modifying the code. 


Compared to Shopify, which offers different pricing plans and ongoing costs associated with using the platform – including both transactional fees and monthly subscription fees – Zen Cart is a free and open-source platform that doesn’t require licensing fees to use it effectively, providing a much more cost effective solution for businesses big and small. 

Control and Ownership

Unlike Shopify, when you set up your ecommerce website using Zen Cart, you can choose to host it on your own server as well as a hosting provider of your choice, giving you complete control and ownership. In comparison, choosing Shopify means your website will be hosted on Shopify’s servers and sacrificing control over technical aspects of your store. 

Better Community Support

With a dedicated community of Zen Cart users and developers easy to find in forums and other online resources, there is no shortage of documentation and resources to help you troubleshoot problems and customise your store. While Shopify also has a supportive and dedicated community, there are limits compared to the open-source nature of Zen Cart. 

If you aren’t sure which eCommerce platform to use, why not research for yourself the pros and cons of both Shopify and Zen Cart so you can make an informed decision on your platform of choice. There is no perfect solution and your preference will depend heavily on your specific requirements, technical expertise and, and overall preferences for control and customisation.
