Zen Cart How to Change All Products to Taxable Goods

If you added all of your zen cart products before you set up your tax structure, and want to mark all products as taxable goods, you will have to go into each product screen in the admin, one by one, and make the changes manually. This can take a long time especially if your zen cart store has a lot of products. This Easy Help Zen Cart Tutorial will show you how to set all of the products in your store to taxable goods status with one simple command.

Log into your zen cart admin and go to Tools – Install SQL Patches. Copy and paste the following into the box and click on the “send” button:


UPDATE products SET products_tax_class_id=1;

Mobile device usage is growing every day. This makes it more important than ever for zen cart stores to be responsive. Customers are becoming used to shopping online using their mobile devices and they expect websites viewed on these devices to render as well as they do on their desktop or laptop computers. Since mobile devices have smaller screens websites that have not been optimized for mobile audiences will require a lot of side to side scrolling to view content, and a lot of zooming in and out in order to read text. This annoys customers and makes a bad first impression. It is unlikely that they will return to your site or complete a purchase. Many zen cart businesses are losing an extraordinary number of customers this way, and don’t know why, or how to fix the problem.
