Pros

Great features, great team, great support. If you need an online store, in any field, any language, and any country, PrestaShop is absolutely the best choice.
It's an easy to use program, friendly UX, responsive, it covers all the basic needs for a basic e-commerce business, great library of admins to upgrade your business.
There were over a thousand options and all are pretty good. The first time I see that any CMS has such thoughtful templates.

Pros

The best aspects of OpenCart include the ability to integrate payment gateways and e-commerce tools easily into websites. Many are free to use and the variety of tools are fantastic.
Great feedback from the community, being and active and responsive community. We were able to develop one online shop with easy and great performance.
What I like most about OpenCart is that it is open source, thereby it has a huge community. I like that OpenCart is easy to use and setup.

Cons

The worst of this is you have an ecommerce with more than 10000 references. On those particular cases the software became a little bit slow.
In the process, it turned out that some plugins conflict with each other, causing malfunctions in the site. Initial setup requires programming skills.
Very unstable when it comes to updates / everything breaks every time we update. Code is still not fully migrated to symfony.

Cons

Most of the templates require further work, as they are usually bought at foreign sites. There are also problems with translation, or rather its lack and with optimization.
Some say bad customer support, but no personal experience in this regard.
We do not favor how limited the base platform is on shipping integration, fraudulent order monitoring, or promotional sale control.

OpenCart

Popular, open source and not too complicated - worth a try

Reviewed 7 years ago

Shifted to OpenCart from an aging Prestashop. Gave a try to other software along the way. OpenCart, which is just about right in everything. OpenCart is easy to set up, it is lightning fast (you will see how important this is sooner or later), it has a million extensions which are not too expensive. From my experience, OpenCart is also quite easy to learn and manage on my own. It is definitely not perfect, but better than the immediate competition if looking for cost effective though feature-rich eCommerce solution. Bottom line: Recommended. At least give it a try and place on your shortlist.

Pros

- very fast; - a LOT of extensions, most inexpensive; - easy to learn the basics, not impossible to learn even more.

Cons

- lacks the fancy plugin management of Prestashop; - bulky updates; - some say bad customer support, but no personal experience in this regard.
