I've installed an example of ZenCart at http://www.bigkahunahosting.com/zencart/ (http://www.bigkahunahosting.com/zencart/) and I'll load up some examples of store data when I get a little more time.

Zen Cart is full featured - It will handle orders soup to nuts including shipping, sales tax, packing slips, confirmation emails, credit cards all of the reporting you could dream of. It can handle home businesses selling less than 100 items to bigger business selling thousands of items. It is highly customizable to give that "custom made for you" only look and feel.

This all comes at the price of time required to configure how you want to run your business; store departments/categories; and products with descriptions and photos. Once completed you will have a store which is killer looking and efficient. This is one of the applications that many offering to set up your store at $150 hour use. You can save that money if you can invest the time.

It requires one database and the Big Kahuna Package for a small store or Enterprise Package of hosting for busy stores. (http://www.bigkahunahosting.com/hosting-plans/)

We can install, and even configure how you operate, departments, special pages and do the graphics, but you should handle adding the items you're sell as it is time consuming. A person of average intelligence and computer user abilities can configure, add pages and departments. There is strong support on their forums (but be careful hiring some beside BKH to install/configure as you have to trust them to not put a backdoor on your hosting account) and documentation.
