Pros: This software is able to handle thousands of products without any hassle, most important "it is free" , the only thing you may have to pay is for extensions, which at the end save you a lot of money, because if you compare paying a developer vs an extension, the difference is huge.

Cons: The only disadvantage is that is not a very intuitive tool, which is bad for someone that has limited technical knowledge. That may imply extra costs having to hire a technical person.

Overall: We are running our auto parts store with this software, and so far it has been working great.

Pros: It is ideal for creating e-commerce websites and has beautiful templates and modules on the Internet that help us to make our site very functional, and the development is not very expensive, unlike other content managers.

Cons: It is not very customizable since the administrative options sometimes are very limited if you need to create other functions it is advisable to hire additional support or buy modules that help you.

Overall: You can create a couple of e-commerce and I'm doing great because I can handle them very easily.

Pros: IT'S FREE. That's the first advantage of using PrestaShop. It is highly customizable and great for creating small online stores. Love the free templates and the plugins as well.

Cons: What you save on the software being free - you need to spend on an expert coder and developer. If you have no experience in coding, then you're better off with more expensive options such as Shopify. PrestaShop is highly customizable -- but only if you know how to code.

It has multiple options to develop a purchase and sale portal, with good design and good security...

Cons: It is a bit difficult to use at first and it is somewhat heavy on some servers which affects the speed of the web portal, I recommend using a good hosting provider

Overall: I have had effective sales from the web portal, instant payments in addition to good security ... I recommend this system for buying and selling projects

Pros: All that is required to create a quality online store, is present here. The default SEO modules can effectively optimize the pages, the control panel is clear and all this under a free license.

Cons: If you do not have experience in this business, working with PrestaShop will be very difficult for you, because the system lacks normal support and few useful materials on the Internet.

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.

Overall: It is a great option to start in E-commerce. In my company we use it constantly to develop good quality online stores quickly.

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: 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.

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.

If the wizard understands the mechanics of the process, he will not let the engine go too far, correcting the process manually in time.

Cons: The main disadvantages: a few really useful templates and plug-ins. It's just a disgrace. This system is completely undeservedly ignored. It's sad, but true.

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

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: 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: 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: 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.

Cons: Of course, the CMS has minor flaws that developers should be aware of, but in the end they do not affect the quality of the system.

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: Regardless of the country for which you need an online store, PrestaShop is localized for more than 50 languages, among which the most common and popular.

Cons: Despite the fact that the application offers to choose one of 2000 ready-made templates, this is not enough, because even in my short practice I met similar sites.

Pros: The ease of use in everyday situations, the stability through upgrades and the easy of customizations for the front end are top notch. Also the ease to integrate a tone of great themes and modules. The large following it has on forums and discussion boards.

Cons: The seo factor of the website is not that great. I do think that it can be upgraded, in fact I frequently use one or two after market modules to make it seo friendly.

Overall: The best looking online store for our business, with tons of complete house building materials and info.

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.

Cons: I have no pros as soon they don't work with the customer, they are a scammers and they should be shut downBought a theme and didn't worked with the last version. Asked refund. Developer accepts refund but prestashop doesn't refund my money. That's why I quick understand that after I bought the theme I was interested in another one and told them to keep the money and pay them the difference and give me the other theme. They say don't want because they work differently. Yes, they do. They are a fraud. Opened the dispute to PayPal and now I'm waiting... avoid them.

Overall: none

Pros: I like it already looks good just installed. The default theme if fine, you can simply upload your products.
The interface is smooth and very intuitive.
Presta is quite popular so the majority of the plugins will be available on Presta as well.

Cons: - Limited configuration and customizations options
- Themes and plugins are quite expensive
- Hard to expand the shop, modules are expensive

Overall: Good CMS to start an e-shop.

Pros: You will find most of the features you may need.
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.

Comments: Prestashop is the best e-commerce solution for SMB and sometimes larger companies.
It provides all the functionality required to manage online sales. First implementation is simple thanks to all the modules and themes available in the Market place.
If you need to go further, you need some configuration or development skills but there are a lot of possibilities to extend the product. Latest version (1.7) is very powerful and focus on the merchant requirements.

Pros: Easy to deploy. Free of costs. Very well documented and easy to employ new customized features.

Cons: Nothing bad to say .

Overall: Prestahop is my personal favorite eCommerce system to use. Easy deployment, I can have a basic shop up in 30 minutes or less ready to sell products without extensive modifications to the system or my servers. Supports the major payment gate systems as well as popular shipping services. Customization is easy with its documentation. It's very straight forward and very detailed.

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.

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 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.

Easy Peasy!

Comments: I used Prestashop for the first time last year for a e-commerce start up. I didn't know anything about Prestashop before. My boss told me "you'll see it's very easy to use", and he was right. I have never used an e-commerce platform so easy before. Everything is pretty straight forward when you want to add new products in your catalog. Prestashop is like a bicycle, you have learnt once how to ride a bike, now i'm sure I can still manage an e-shop!

Pros: - Well designed - easy to use - lots of modules and add-ons - Fast results

Cons: - don't forget to save when you are going into another tab

Unless you can read & write PHP Skip it!

Comments: Pros includes pre-built templates, easy to configure webpages and very good back office tracking for visits, capturing customer information, creating invoices and logging and charting sales with lists and charts.

Cons include buggy shopping cart. Customers can't buy depending in device, shopping cart throws errors. Buying a pre-made template from Prestashop add-ons is deceiving as they don't cover or stand by anything sold there. Paid customer service directly from Prestashop is sub par. After 18 months on this platform I had to leave it because the even their best technical support couldn't fix it and provide a working shopping cart.
