After trying Magento and Woocommerce I ended up with Prestashop because the other solutions I tried were either too complicated or too simple. Prestashop seems to lie somewhere in the middle.
Before I decided on Prestashop, I did some extensive research to inspect other solutions such as Shopify, Shopware and Oxid. However, the large user and developer base as well as the massive amount of addons available for Prestashop made me switch to Prestashop.
Here is what I especially like about Prestashop:
- The backend is simple enough to get used to quite quickly
- There are a lot of amazing templates you can choose from
- it's rather easy to find Prestashop developers near you, so you're not stuck with an exotic shop system nobody understands
- Multi store/multi language functionality is integrated into Prestashop out of the box
There is a big transition from 1.6 to 1.7 which is really massive and makes it hard for new store owners. Should I use the old, but stable 1.6 or use the new and potentially incomplete 1.7?
There is a huge debate about 1.7 and it seems to split the community in half. The reason is that the new 1.7 is based on Symfony, a PHP framework that is supposed to make Prestashop development in future simpler. The problem is that switching to the newest version is like switching to a complete new shop software.
Apart from that there are some quirks that are hard to understand. E.g. why the company is based in France, yet it's not fully compliant to EU law out of the box without addons and modifications.
This has been a great solution for medium brands that process more than 100 orders per month and have some particular functionalitys of management stock with third party shared integrations
This free software is a complete CMS scalable and cusomizable solution for developing an e-commerce for a brand / client. It counts with a great historical versions and a big community that develops extra functionality like themes and modules so you can search for any solution you need. I see its data base very well structurated and normalized to have a good experience at Query's on them, Very intuitive on that aspect.
Since the basic process of e-commerce is well developed, the extra functionalitys that particular customer needs can transform into a big cost installing purchasing modules for it.
You need a good capacitation for successful auto - management, and a team of developmentes to customize it and have maintancement.
If you want a professional store setup you need to take a look at prestashop. Don't be scared by the rugged design, you can change it by buying a premium template builder, and build your store without the need for any code. The simpleness of the platform and easy updating, one click upgrade make it the best free software for most businesses. If you plan on having thousand and thousand of products you are in need of some key modules,but they are easily available and not that expensive. Is it a no brainer for any business man that in order to get the same quality from some other platform you should invest thousands of dollars in it.
You have to understand what you are doing, maybe whach a few tutorials, and setup your security properly, also keep in mind that are some tweaks for fast caching and the importance of using a CDN.
Easy to configure, easy to update ( one click update ), easy to install new modules and themes and builders. One of the most versatile platforms for physical and virtual goods. I have custom made for customers shops with upwards of 1 million products, imported from dropshipping suppliers.
It is very easy to manage, tons of free and premium modules and upgrades.
A solid infrastructure to rely on and different profiles with permission for employs.
Very Reliable for large amounts of traffic.
Not that great for backups.
Modules and themes don't work from 1.5 to 1.6 to 1.7, have to reorder or to download new version ( incompatible by design of the code ).
Big community but not that active.
Translations needs an upgrade, being made by contributions from authors.
We have been using this CMS for several years now. Of course, we use other content management systems in our work, but this one is a priority. Switched to it, since other systems are in most cases unreasonably expensive and not very functional. In PrestaShop, I like most of all the variety of functions: you can very quickly (using a template) prepare an advertising campaign, as well as duplicate a post in a social network in a few clicks. And all the statistics are collected in Google Analytics, which is certainly a huge plus.
Extra features are expensive. To select a topic or add functionality to the CMS, you will have to make a one-time payment. This has to be done not so often, but the amount still turns out rather big.
