A Platform with Integrated Powerful E-Commerce Tools

2021-01-19

One of the main responsibility of its reporting and analytics features is tracking visitors so that you will be able to know that who are your customers and where they are coming from and what are they buying from your store.

Pros

A large number of options are available in it for customers to view their chosen products in the shopping cart.

Cons

Besides various benefits, it is having a lot of limitations in it such as it is not as much scalable like other platforms that it will not be beneficial for large stores but it is a lot more beneficial and helpful for those businesses that are small or starting their new businesses.

A Beautiful User Interface Shopping Cart Software

2021-02-10

Its a great shopping cart software , it only needs the developer of the shopping cart to make the admin dashboard to be easy to use, then all countries needs to be added by default in their future versions.

Pros

Ability to install different languages at the admin dashboard so that the website visitors can translate the store in their respective languages is great.

Cons

All countries aren't installed in the localization section of the admin dashboard which will hinder those buyers from the excluded countries from completing their transactions.

Great PHP-based Cart Software!

2018-11-22

Pros

PrestaShop is free and open source which means you have complete control over customizing your shop. I wouldn't consider any software that didn't give you the source code.

Cons

A USPS integration module is not included by default - you have to get it from a third party. This is included by default in all the other open source cart software projects out there.

Great no-fees E-Commerce website

2015-12-10

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.

Pros

No monthly fees, easy integration with PayPal payment gateway.

Cons

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.

It can be a bit difficult if we have not used similar CMS, it is easier if we have experience in website development.
