2018-05-11

Excellent CMS for ecommerce. Highly recommended!

Pros

It has a very complete control panel and on the internet you get a large number of templates as well as a number of plugins that allow customization according to what you want.

Cons

I have had some problems when handling a very large inventory. The modules of payment gateway, being static, generate some errors with the response times of the gateways, so they must be controlled

create a web page has not been easier so far with prestashop.

2018-04-17

is a great website manager, its ease of use makes us able to design web pages in a professional manner.

Pros

this product facilitates the creation of web pages without the need to have a great knowledge in the area of programming, its usefulness and versatility gives us the opportunity to choose templates to have a better web design.

Cons

it is limited to offering products and limited elements, since it is a preset page manager and uses the elements that each template offers us, in order to work freely we must know how to code.

Great no-fees E-Commerce website

2015-12-10

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

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.

PS review

2019-10-22

Pros

- ease of use - the core is open source - BO is clean - it's easy to develop modules - supports a lot of products without any performance issue - supports many languages by default

Cons

. - lacks a lot of functionalities in the core for an e-shop (stock management is a joke, no whishlist nor comparator, real cart reminder...) - it's almost impossible to deal with discounts because the system doesn't work sometimes, and/or is unstable, and also lacks basic functionalities (buy 1 get 1, but if we buy 2 we still have only 1...) - bought modules don't update automatically, even when the account with addons is linked - no "starter" theme anymore : why ?

No functionality limitations

2020-01-28

I could not go beyond templates. For this reason, I was very happy to switch to CMS PrestaShop, since the platform has open source code, which means that any element of the design and interface can be redesigned according to my plan.

Cons

Graphical statistics have a terrible layout.

Easy and flexible platform for your eshop

2020-09-24

For a small e-commerce business is Prestashop a matching solution. You can run it for free or invest as much as is comfortable for you.

Pros

For example, better design, better stock management, more import/export features.

Cons

Their customer service is not ideal and, if you are a beginner, you probably will struggle if any technical issue occurs. There are many freelancers and many add-ons, unfortunately, not all are reliable. In those years, I suffered through some security issues but nothing too serious.

Do not waste your time with Prestashop

2018-12-10

I would not recommend anyone work with Prestashop. They have tools to make it a good experience, but most people don't have a lot of experience with it and don't know how it works.

Pros

Maybe I like that you can create a customizable website.

Cons

Prestashop backend is slow. Websites need to be updated frequently to use product.
