zStore Manager Basic


zStore Manager Basic gives a Zazzle shopkeeper or Zazzle Affiliate site the ability to easily display Zazzle products on another domain.
zStore Manager Basic can be configured using a setup page. The user can configure the shop name, associate’s id, custom url, and the product layout. Users can
also use the cache so that images load faster. The user can also use a shortcode on a page which will override the settings in the Settings page, except
for the cache and the custom url.

To use via Shortcode

For shortcode documentation go to the website .

Adding product types

Zazzle adds new products often and you will want them to show up in zStore Manager Basic. To add a product to zStore Manager Basic, open the producttype.csv file that is located in the root directory of the plugin. Add 1 product per line in the following format:

productname, zazzle_product_code. 

For instance, to add kids’ t-shirts this would be

Clothing | Kids | T-Shirts,252175184843195737


  • User and Store Information

  • Individual Page Information

  • View of Products

  • Zoomed View of Product


  1. Download the plugin to the plugins directory.

  2. Activate the plugin

  3. Fill in the information in the settings tab.

  4. Add the shortcode, [zStoreBasic] to a page. If you simply want to use the configuration from the Settings page, no further action is necessary.


How do I add collections?

Collections can only be added via shortcode.

1.  Use ONLY the collection number and not the name in the shortcode.

[zStoreBasic collections ="119729523592642168"]

2.  Do NOT use ampersands in the collection title.  Zazzle's RSS feed will not handle them

How do I add new products to the products list.

open the producttype.csv file that is located in the root directory of the plugin. Add 1 product per line in the following format:

productname, zazzle_product_code such as 

For instance, to add Kids’ t-shirts this would be

Clothing | Kids | T-Shirts,252175184843195737

Recent upgrade broke this plugin. Contacted the developer and received a quick response from Ilene. The issue was fixed in less than 24 hours and the plugin was up and running again. Appreciate the quick and continued support for this plugin.

Activate plugin….my site fouls up. deactivate plugin….my site looks good again. nope, not even gonna try if this plugin works. it’s too much work if it means I need to search for the part that breaks my design and hope it hasn’t broken anything else as well.

I am running a non-profit and Zazzle is a fund raiser. But I have frequently have had to deal with a broken “short code”. When it works, it’s great, but I can’t say the support is timely. I wish there was a paid version, that I could count on.
