Great platform for a large site

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

In general, the cost of maintaining a site running CMS PrestaShop is quite high, but if you have a serious project, they will quickly pay off.

Pros
Our company manages the site using CMS PrestaShop. I also often interact with this platform. Most of all I like the admin panel. Using it is very easy to manage the file manager and domains.

Cons
A site on PrestaShop cannot be hosted on cheap hosting. The platform is too heavy, the server will constantly crash. For those who are thinking about this CMS, I would recommend buying a hosting no cheaper than $ 100.

Overall its very handy software to use if you want to do business online. Also cheap meaning you get what you pay for.

Pros
Few hours and simple e-commerce business page is up and running. Plugins enable to use very different functionality, also there are nice free plugins.

Cons
Software update is usually the biggest problem with every e-commerce tool. PrestaShop update progress is better than other e-commerce tools out in business. Be careful with custom modifications of course :)

I was able to set it up myself - with no IT knowledge

Review Source: GetApp

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.

Prestashop is not as simple as they show, but is an option to start your online business

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-07-05
Review Source: GetApp

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.

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.

Great product to quickly launch a simple e-commerce

Review Source: Capterra

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
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.

Review Source: Capterra

Overall my experience has been positive. Once you get a site up and running the way you want it to look the package performs pretty well. There have been some complaints about the speed of the back-end loading but overall PrestaShop does a fairly solid job.

Pros
In some respects this is pretty easy to implement. If you are looking for a very economical solution for a limited number of products PrestaShop fits the bill.

Cons
When it comes to customizing the look and feel of the software that is where PrestaShop has some issues. Little things like swapping out or moving a button can involve quite a bit of digging just to find out where to make changes.

Pros
Unlike other platforms, CMS PrestaShop is easy to work with SEO. We did not have to install additional plug-ins, all the tools were already in the basic version.

Cons
For this CMS, you need to carefully choose a hosting and definitely forget about the cheapest options. Shop on PrestaShop creates a heavy load on the server, and hosting must withstand it.

It's a great product, however you do need a developer team to have it fully set up. If you have a dev team, this is the best option since you can have pretty much unlimited customization options.

Pros
Prestashop is a wonderful solution for creating a fully personalized e-commerce website. I also has a wide range of add-ons to complement what you're looking for. This add ons include solutions for gateways for payments, marketing, and design/display.

Cons
Add-ons can be a bit expensive. Also the learning curve for the admin users can be pretty steep.
