Pros

We love that is is really use to use, to manage the products and check the orders. It is very user friendly, which is really helpful when you have a large team.
I love how easy it is to check out. I love there is a card swiping device too so payments are flawlessly done.
Shopify is a popular tool with great support that makes it easy to get started an online e-commerce business. It has also great integration across different platforms like Laptops/PCs and smartphones.

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.

Cons

Was not very much support on the stubborn aps that refuse to leave when you delete them.
Sometimes on the app I have trouble tracking my package either error from the sending company or from the something on my end in not understanding the app to it's fullest.
Bad practice, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. No other company does that.

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.

Best E-Commerce Platform for a Non-Coder

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

Honestly, the whole suite of Shopify makes itself unique, but primarily I would pick the ease of use as compared to Woocommerce or Prestashop or Magento

Cons

There is no opensource version like wordpress or magento.

Best solution to create an ecommerce if you want a ready solution

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

After giving a try to shopify, it seems that it's the best available solution to create an ecommerce without taking care of nuts and bolts. You can have your ecommerce ready in about 30 minutes just following an easy tutorial on youtube. Very good solution for dropshipping with Oberlo.

Cons

Depending on your skills you may prefer a different solution like Woo, Prestashop or Magento, where you have a much more granular control and don't have to pay for every single additional app to enhance your ecommerce

Perfect solution for multi products e-commerce (not for one product e-commerce)

Reviewed 5 months ago
Pros

Overall, I think Shopify is the best e-commerce solution in this market (I tried Woocommerce and Prestashop before it). UI is very friendly and it is super fast while using it. We also noticed a big boost in website performance (speed mainly)

Cons

I think it's a bit expensive as a solution and the best fit is having and running a multi-products e-commerce. For a single product e-commerce (like us) probably is too much (like having a Ferrari and drive 3km per day)

Shopify

The internet's best e-commerce software!

Reviewed 3 months ago

One of my clients required another answer for his new e-shop. He chose Prestashop and Shopify. Eventually, he picked an e-shop arrangement from Shopify. The e-shop was finished in the span of 9 days or so and figured out how to function in it in 3 days or less.

Pros

Coordination is by all accounts a consistent work underway with frequent updates to each element, quicker than I would anticipate that they should emerge. The product appears like a depend efficient coordinated effort, from various sources. I likewise love the practically publicly released arrangement of Shopify, and the makers leave lots of space for client/client information and customizations - alongside sufficient chances to produce income by adding to client encounters, with a business opportunity for made applications, subjects, gadgets and that's just the beginning.

Cons

The estimating model appears simple to manage and straightforward, however the charging rehearses in numerous ways are overpowering, concerning the "discretionary" applications that you can/should use to make the whole item a worthwhile buy.

Easy to get your e-commerce business off the ground fast

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

The dashboard and interface are easy to work with. There is a lot of app integrations and you can pretty much connect it with anything to help simplify the running of your business. There is a ton of wiki and help on the site itself and it is actually a real pleasure to use this system to run my clothing company. I moved to this from Prestashop and the easy of editing your themes and templates are so much simpler here. overall I say that Shopify is a great product.

Cons

So far the only 2 drawback I am seeing is the fact that you are unable to connect any Amazon account that are not Amazon.com, so being that I sell on both Amazon.com and Amazon.ca I need to use a 3rd party app to make that connection. It would be nice if Shopify did this like it does for Amazon.com My 2nd drawback is the inventory tracking. While the inventory tracking is great and simple to use for my specific purpose it is indeed to simple. I wish you had the ability to setup different warehouse so that when you have multiple locations it could track the inventory this way.

PrestaShop

Powerful Engine for Buy and Sell

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

I installed PrestaShop as it comes free with my web hosting for curiosity sake. Lo and behold, I was completely blown away by the power packed features that comes with it. I really love the Back Office, it's kind of like a behind the scenes view of your ecommerce website. They really nailed the basics, from product page views to checkout. So if you have goods to sell online, just install PrestaShop and you're ready to go. Just sit back and wait to collect revenue from sales. Unless you want to mess around the website alot, there is really no need for additional plugins and such, and that's what I love.

Cons

PrestaShop needs to keep up with the times. While I love the Backend Office, the mobile version of the Shopify admin/app is actually much better - it presents you with Sales figures, although functionality to customise the website is lacking as well.

PrestaShop

I love it but..

Reviewed 10 months ago

Overall positive. It was after all the first ecommerce platform I used for my small business. It worked great and few problems that I was usually able to solve in an hour.

Pros

It was a great all in solution for my small business. I was able in a few month to set up a store with two languages and a 100 products. which was amazing for my small business. However after a while it felt outdated. I missed some integrations with among others my shipping provider which by the way now does provide integration with prestashop (a bit too late though)

Cons

For some reason , some websites offer integrations with etsy, woocommerse , shopify but not prestashop. That started to get annoying. The layout of the website felt a bit outdated too, although I know I could install another template , i couldn't find a modern template within my budget

Great ecommerce platform option

Reviewed 4 years ago
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.

Great Platform

Reviewed 4 years ago
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.

PrestaShop

Great Functionality, Large Community, Rather Simple To Use, Very Extendable , Open Source

Reviewed 5 years ago
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...

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.
