zWebstore - Professional eCommerce for Zikula
zWebstore is an implementation of an online store (webstore) providing you with the functionality you expect from a professional eCommerce platform. It is implemented as a native Zikula Application Framework (ZAF) module, making use of all the advanced features in ZAF. This means that it is not an external software platform integrated in a loose manner with the ZAF platform, but rather a fully templated solution which seamlessly integrates into the community, content, layout, user and security management provided by the Zikula Application Framework.
The zWebstore platform provides features previously only available in enterprise systems, enabling you to effectively target your customers and sell more effectively. It is highly configurable to various scenarios and has been tested to ensure it's scalability and stability, easily being able to handle a large and complex product catalog.
It's modular, object-oriented architecture, together with the features provided by the Zikula Application Framework allows you to easily customize the store to meet your requirements while keeping those customizations cleanly separated from the standard codebase. The fact that all output is fully templated means that the data and presentation layers are fully separated, allowing your to modify your store's look and feel without altering any files which handle the data layer. By leveraging the the powerful architecture provided by the Zikula Application Framework, the store's source code is relatively small with the logic being cleanly encapsulated in the Zikula Application Framework object layer.
This architecture makes tracking your customizations and managing upgrades much easier, providing your with the means to efficiently implement the functionality you require and thus deliver a cost effective implementation, providing you with a quick time to market and a higher return on investment. zWebstore is distributed in PHP source code under a proprietary license which gives you the right to customize the product to you have your store suit your needs.
