Pros: Excellent Sale Platform From the last client perspective I imagine that the most appealing thing about Prestashop is that it very well may be conveyed rapidly and you can begin altering and transferring items, you can truly wake up not having a store and head to sleep with a few moves made. Prestashop offers a completely highlighted item for business people or established physical organizations alike, somebody who begins to utilize Prestashop won't understand every one of the highlights it offers since they are numerous and you don't generally focus on insights or strategically pitches when you begin however they are accessible when you need to utilize them and you don't need to pay an overhaul for that, not at all like other internet business arrangements. From an engineering perspective, Prestashop offers a fast answer for clients who need an adaptable complete arrangement and they would prefer not to hang tight for it, so you can send and afterward create on it while items are transferred and individuals are prepared.

Cons: Aversion The expectation to absorb information for creating your very own subjects and modules may be an issue when you begin working with it, yet it satisfies. The addons commercial center is extremely costly and conditions are ugly to engineers and customers alike, so as a designer, you should need to locate an option for moving your modules and subjects

Overall: last client, Prestashop handles orders, client enrollment, mail alarms, installments, item index, stock (counting propelled stock administration), shipping, limits, dialects, monetary forms, web-based life modules and you can without much of a stretch include talk and other free modules, so it deals with everything and tells you when you are required. It enables me to make a shop-type site effectively. One other thing is that it enables you to invest more energy in the real substance, as there are hardly any coding that you should do to make a fundamental store. PrestaShop offers multi-stores and I found that supportive particularly when you have diverse settings for various nations you pitch to. Is a phenomenal answer for my business, since it permits me of a simple and exceptionally financial way the stock of items, treatment of customers, requests, and coordination.

Pros: 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

Cons: 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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Overall: 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

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Pros: Prestashop is one of the leading platforms for ecommerce, we use it extensively on building custom made shops, but you can really just install it and upload a couple of products and you are done, have a brand new online shop.

It's very ease to use for beginners and advanced users alike.

It has top knotch addons and modules to be install, free and paid.

The dashboard is amazingly simple and you can find all the tools you just by browsing over the top categories.

Cons: It can be difficult to upgrade major versions, as you have to custom rebuild all your code and modules.

Pros: From client side it is actually great. You can see everything you need about your order and can be modified really easy from backend side.

It has a million extensions to add, and you always find new options to improve customer´s experience.

Cons: It has been really hard to find some options to change. Several times we needed a developer to assist. It would be great if even specific options/tools were designed to be modify without the need of hiring someone else to do it.

Overall: We had great results after changing to PrestaShop, overall it is a great platform and it continues to improve options every year.

Multiple languages.

Multiple currencies.

Cons: Not able to modify some things, however you will be able to find third-party modules.

I did not have the best experience with customer support so maybe you will have to know about it, use the community support or have someone specialized in it.

Overall: I have been using it for about 5 years. So far, I cannot imagine my business without it. It has most of the functionalities you may need and there are a lot of third-party modules providers that will help you with special and specific features you may need.

Recommendations to other buyers: Not for a while, as the update it, it will work better and better.

Pros: I have been using PrestaShop for many years now and I don't think to switch to another service. I like the fact that in this CMS it is convenient to work with clients. Using email, I quickly notify clients of new promotions, and the ability to synchronize with popular social networks helps to work with clients outside the site.

Cons: The engine consumes a lot of resources, which is why the server is slow. Since I used other CMS, I can say that the problem is not in the server. PrestaShop is most likely poorly optimized.

Pros: We used this CMS for exactly 3 years. On the advice of our programmers, the team switched to it from Magenta. Of the advantages, I can point out a cheap tariff, a broader functionality than our previous CMS and the absence of transaction fees.

Cons: CMS is unstable, a lot of mistakes. Plugins that we acquire for an extra charge conflict with each other. For example, if you install a plug-in for currency conversion along with synchronization via e-mail, none of them will work.

Pros: We are using Prestashop for creating the most of our E-commerce products. Open-Source Platform and existing market with plugins - are the main advantages to use Prestashop for small-middle sized projects.

Cons: After updating the version of Prestashop, some of the plugins have to be recorded because the system is alerting us that there are some errors in platform update. In case you have a lot of project on Prestashop at the same time, it consumes quite a lot of time.

Pros: Prestashop is one of the "cheapest" options in the market to create an online shop in a short time. It has the advantage that you can choose among many predesigned templates, which are certainly very nice and allow you to show the public your products in an attractive way. You can also set up the products in an administrative panel to keep track of the number of products available, prices, you can create discount coupons and much more. It is a complete software in the sense that you can manage the business from one place.

Cons: However, the installation, uses and features of this program are not as simple as they show in advertising. If you do not have knowledge in programming or computer science, you will necessarily need the help of a professional because there are certain functions that you will not be able to carry out by yourself. For me was a headache to load the products in the store because the program it is not so intuitive or so practical. If you bought a basic template, little by little you will realize that you will need to buy new modules to perform some important business tasks. These modules have a separate cost, therefore the final investment is much higher than you had originally thought. To solve a technical problem, you will also need to document a lot and have the time to do it. I think it is a software that you can buy and use as long as you have a professional that can guide you even before you start, because otherwise you will end up losing time and money.

Comments: I have been using PrestaShop over the past year as my back-end e-commerce storefront, with a WIX front-end to bring people in, for my partner's online greeting card and wall decor business (http://www.obunny.ca). Have tried to implement the newly-introduced "grid" SKU setting to replace the standard "list" SKU setting, but the software doesn't seem to allow for it. With my PayPal transaction gateway, only about half the transactions seem to show up in PrestaShop's "Orders" stack (thankfully PayPal notifies me that a payment has come in), so I have to manually convert the shopping-cart list into an order. PrestaShop offers many free modules which can be added on to your site, including social media links, LiveChat, etc.

Pros: No monthly fees, easy integration with PayPal payment gateway.

Cons: Limited technical support, which relies mainly on user groups who might or might not respond to your question. Shipping costs do not always calculate accurately, and multiple shipping cost options (eg. regular parcel mail, Next-day Air, 2-day Air) for customers to choose from could be a nice improvement to add in. When modules are updated, it is all too easy to re-install the "default" content which the module provide, rather than continuing on with your custom content.

Comments: I have three stores now with Prestashop, which I have been using for over six years. I would say that the older versions worked perfectly well and I had no problems. I would have given 5 stars in all areas. (I am talking version 1.6.0.9 or thereabouts) Unwittingly "upgrading" to the latest versions, I'm now on 1.6.0.14, has rendered Prestashop almost unworkable. It only works now for me thanks to the brilliant paid add-on Store Manager. My two sites with fewer products - 20 and 1200 respectively, work fine still. My main site, which is my main source of income has 4,500 products. I cannot edit or save products (which is where Store Manager comes in). The search indexing does not work. CSV product import will not work. Database backups always time out. There are frequent errors with Payment gateways. Every recommended update usually causes new problems. All this despite the fact that I am using the default template and have made no code changes. Support is absolutely zero. My problems have been well discussed on the forums for over two years and are common. The programmers do nothing. I am not a programmer. I have spent over $2000 on programming help over the last two years just to keep my site running - and Prestashop is supposed to be "Open Source" and free. I would highly recommend Prestashop if you have few products, but I would say that if you start to go over 2000 then in my experience it simply does not work. The programmers are too busy making add ons which they make money on, than getting the basic shell to work. Transferring to another cart now would be a nightmare, largely because of the huge number of product photos, I think about 30,000 now.

Pros: Brilliant for a small number of products, say up to 2000 - 2,500. Runs like clockwork

Cons: If you have a large number of products, don't waste your time or money, Prestashop does not work, unless you can install the old version 1.6.0.9 (download links are still available)

Comments: I've started using the PrestaShop around 2 years ago and I'm still into this system.

The experience with the system I got during all this time and throughout my several projects is enough to write ah honest review about the system.

Starting with the advantages, the biggest advantage of the PrestaShop is its huge support community which is the best ever help a developer can dream of. Discussion boards with active users make a big difference. Furthermore, one of the biggest advantages is also the administration panel of the PrestaShop which is way easy to use than say other competitor platforms. What's more important for me is the extended functionality and efficiency. The function ility is far more than any user would ever think to want to have on their websites and as for efficiency, PrestaShop is lightweight and well optimised, thus not loading the servers.

As for the disadvantages, there are of course some. The biggest disadvantage is that most of the most useful functionalities require the additional investments to have installed in my PrestaShop. What I also noticed, in a case of big products quantity, Prestashop does not function as well as it initially did.

To conclude, PrestaShop is good for starting the e-commerce. The system works well with medium or a small number of products, but PrestaShop's efficiency, when there are 100 products isn't any better than when there are 1000. Overall, I would suggest this to the beginner in e-commerce users.

Pros: Great functionality and simple to use design. It is possible to set it up with no special IT skills, just some general experience with tools like Wordpress etc. There is a variety of add-ons and widgets which make it highly flexible. You can find anything you need either for free or for cheap money. No need for expensive developers for tailored solutions.

Cons: The templates are pricey when comparing to other tools. There is a lot of work when adding new products - some of the fields are required while they should not be. For example for online products it is quite complex to set it up as my needs were much simpler than what was required. And I could not change the settings easily to require less information from customer etc.

Pros: I had to master this system from scratch. Nothing, figured out, spending only a few days and using the search. This indicates that everyone will be able to master the system, regardless of the level of preparation. It is enough to know what is Google. Today, being already an expert, I can say that the system provides a good functionality, which can compete with not all competitors.

Cons: CMS is not optimized for search engines, little worthy of templates. It is especially surprising how rarely they develop plug-ins for this system.

Pros: The loyalty of search engines to shops on PrestaShop is ensured by the use of semantic markup of each product page, corresponding to schema.org. For each product, meta tags are described: a description, a title, and friendly references are generated. This is very important and useful when it is necessary that the site is indexed not in one search engine, but in several at once.

Cons: In the process of creating sites for clients, I noticed that if the category of goods has a paging, then automatically duplicate texts are created.

Pros: The back-end administration that is very well designed.

The simplicity of extending the modules and making a custom one.

Cons: In version 1.7, the back-end has become really slow.

In the front-end, changing an attribute takes too long to update the product (compared to 1.6).

The mixed technologies used as half the back-end is in symphony and the other half traditional.

There is also a decision to leave out the override function but they have not yet implemented another one so it is still applicable.

Didnt like it at first but after learning it, its a great cart solution!

Pros: In the process of working with PrestaShop CMS, I noticed both the advantages of the system and its shortcomings. First about the advantages. So, categories and subcategories of goods are easily formed, just customized attributes for each product, you can create additional fields.

Cons: I noticed such a negative feature: the text placed on the first page is automatically duplicated on all pages of the pagination. This is very bad for SEO. Unfortunately, we did not manage to fix this defect, because we can not interfere with the CMS code, in official PrestaShop sources there is no information about it, and our question was not answered at the official PrestaShop forum.

Pros: Clear and clean code, template based on smarty and bootstrap (hence lots of possibilities), all important features included, easy to extend. Best experience for a developer. Backend easy to use, includes statistics and guides for successful selling. Great export/import tools. Great and polite(!) community.

Cons: CMS capabilities are quite reduced, upgrades not always easy, most plugins and templates are commercial.

Overall: I use it for more than 20 web projects - not only shops - and it is creating very strong revenues for my company.

Pros: One of the most convenient programs with which it was necessary to work. A fairly extensive list of functions, a good system of settings and versatility. You can deal with the interface right on the fly, the store created on the basis of this application starts working almost immediately after installation.

Cons: I could not find any significant deviations in the application. By virtue of its functionality, the CMS is a bit heavy, so the server is under load. For the rest, I recommend.

Pros: Setting up an online store feels like a child's play on this tool. Before setting up a new e-commerce website, just go through their demonstrated sites and you will feel quite confident at the time of setting up your own customised web store.

Cons: The text in the templates they provide is written in a regional language, which do not put a good impact.

Overall: I have created a Demo store with the help of PrestaShop to show it up to my clients and almost everyone have liked it till now.

Pros: I can say that the application can even master a beginner in the creation of sites. A very affordable and colorful interface, a large number of filters, built-in tools to hold the attention of customers, there is a block for SEO website promotion.

Cons: For all its merits, the application is too narrowly specialized, it is sharpened exclusively for online commerce. The program is somewhat heavy for the server, there is not enough training materials.

Pros: Despite its simplicity, CMS PrestaShop in many respects bypasses most of the competitors. The trial version allows you to familiarize yourself with the engine in detail, and the license is available at a price even for small companies.

Cons: Functionality is an order of magnitude less than analogues. The system looks a little out of date and needs some improvements. Has a small number of templates and plugins.

Pros: Installing and launching the platform almost never causes us difficulties. There are many options for the backend. Platforms are notable for stability of work, intuitive interface and good level of security.

Cons: Appearance customization requires too many actions. It took a lot of time to fully explore the platform. There are no functions for creating polls, so you have to additionally involve programmers in solving this moment.

Pros: PrestaShop feels to me like a good blend between Magento's robustness and WooCommerce's shortcomings. You have a lot of marketing tools and decent templates, some of them really attractive, actually. I also appreciate the ability to disable the store when needed (had a customer get overwhelmed with orders--no joke!).

Cons: The architecture is a bit wonky on the back end. If, for example, you're wanting to access the CMS, you find it under Preferences. What do you find there? Page categories and pages in those categories. That's it. I don't even know why it's called a CMS, when PrestaShop *is* the CMS. Lots of little quirks like that.

If you want to switch themes, get ready to pay big money. Very few themes are under $100, and switching from one to another doesn't usually go very smoothly (definitely not something you'd want to do live). I had a client with a 2000+ product website on PrestaShop, and it was such a mess, I just moved the whole thing over to WP and have almost rebuilt the entire thing in a month. I think it would be good for smaller shops, but if you get big, things quickly get muddy.

Overall: Nothing. I hated every aspect of it. I plan to be an advocate for not using PrestaShop in the future whenever the topic arises.

Pros: I've been using the system for several years. I was sorting everything out from scratch, everything turned out pretty quickly. Impressions from use are mostly positive. Although, as elsewhere, there are some nuances. The system is not widely used among webmasters, absolutely undeservedly.

Cons: The main problem is SEO optimization. You can also note the clearly insufficient number of good templates and plug-ins.

Pros: Free open source platform, with lots of apps available for purchase and more user friendly back office, than Magento, OSCommerce

Cons: This was the platform I used prior to switching to Shopify. The platform was stable and had lots of apps (for purchase) to choose from. The only reason why I had made the change was because of the frequent updates that were becoming too time consuming, costly and inconvenient for my growing business.

Pros: In constant evolution, this product is great, you can easily start an e-commerce with some basic internet knowledge, of course you need to learn a lot before running a successful e-commerce, but you can start small with a really low cost.

Cons: If you need functionalities you need to pay, some payed modules are, in my point of view, essential and the cost is no so small.

Overall: If you need to start an e-commerce, even a big one, you can use prestashop, it's stable, the community is great and you can find any modules you want to do exactly what you want.

From the small e-shop for a real shop, on for a manufacturer, to the biggest e-store with thousands of references prestashop can do it.

But, don't think it's all free, you have to bay some essentials good modules, and the most important the support for them to be more peaceful.

Pros: I can say that at first glance, CMS PrestaShop is very attractive for the owners of online stores, because it integrates the payment system, and work with payments and orders, but it has a number of significant drawbacks.

Cons: Personally, I was not enough when working on the site in the administrative panel: when filling pages with text content, you need at least a basic knowledge of text formatting tags, since a special panel that allows, for example, to highlight the phrase in bold or slanted (as, for example, in CMS WordPress ), absent.

Pros: This software is distinguished by its versatility and intuitive interface, which I was not hard to learn. The store we created on CMS PrestaShop was set up and began to function in a matter of time.

Cons: The huge platform functionality overloads the server too. She does not have a function that would allow to organize SMS-mailing for regular customers of the store.

And the built-in opportunities for SEO-optimization of the site help to quickly promote the store in the search engines.

Cons: The transition from the old version of the software to a new one even as an experienced web programmer was difficult, I had to get used to some new options and functions.
