Zen Cart also allows you to set the Customer details; where you can select the fields that you wish to appear on the customer register form. In addition to which it is also possible to toggle the option of customer approval on registration. This option is accessible from the menu Configuration Customer Details.
There is the menu option Configuration Shipping/Packaging that you should go to; to be able to set the store zip code. This is where you select the country of origin and the postal code.
You can also configure a different email address for each function. For example you can configure a different email address for order confirmation and the contact us form. This can be done from the admin menu Configuration Email Options.
It is also vital you configure the Zen Cart and let it know which credit cards you want to accept. This can been done from the admin menu Configuration Credit Cards.
Furthermore it is required to configure the shipping and payment modules as per the options you choose.
