Colon Separated Pair configuration

Specifying configuration values using colon-separated pairs in Zen Cart

Frequently a configuration setting will require several pieces of input - for example, the Table Rate shipping configuration. To express the configuration “charge $5 for up to 2 pounds, but $10 for 2.01 pounds to 7 pounds,” the following string is used:


This could also express the configuration “1-2 items, charge $5, 3-7 items, charge $10.”

This pattern of configuration, called “colon-separated pairs” is used in a number of places in Zen Cart.

Still have questions? No problem! Just head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
