Both Zen Cart and WooCommerce have their peculiarities and they both are worth paying
attention to. It doesn’t mean, however, that they both are equally good for you in particular. The
choice of a shopping cart depends on many factors – the size of your business, the type of the
products you sell, the country you live in. And your taste, of course. If you found yourself
dissatisfied with your Zen Cart and consider migrating to WooCommerce, Cart2Cart automated
migration service will be very helpful for you.
One of the reasons to choose WooCommerce is its content management possibilities. As a
WordPress plugin, WooCommerce is compatible with different types of content, which makes it
possible to set up something more than a regular online shop. Other favorable features of
WooCommerce are high functionality, accessibility and usability, numerous extensions and
design themes, marketing and promotional tools.
