It is a somewhat expensive software and to be able to create or personalize additional functions requires a high knowledge in web programming, besides the principle it can cost a bit of work to adapt to its use.

"With Prestashop, start your adventure in e-commerce. Do you have a good idea? So you have no excuses"

What do you like best?

It is a very easy to install, free e-commerce platform that has the necessary tools for a sales management.

It is configurable, and with a reduced custom, we can customize to our needs.

We just need a business idea.

Very simple, and within reach of anyone.

For a company, the best is not possible, for a first approach to web commerce.

What do you dislike?

Being a generic tool, which is made to think of all, when you need to adjust to your reality, then you have to resort to extras.

Sometimes it's confusing to know which module does what we need.

We have to look in a lot of similar options and not being experts we can get a little lost.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Prestashop solves the need for software for a web store.

It is within the reach of any person or company to have a web business.

Or simply scan your business, which these days is indispensable.

Do you want cheap software? Simple ? easy to use?

So what you are looking for is Prestashop.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were looking for a solution for our business, to make it available online .

The companies we consulted asked for values that were unbearable for us.

Then they told us about Prestashop. We did a rehearsal and we were excited.

Integral management in online business. Stocks, promotion, logistics, payments.

All very simple and cheap.

"Ideal for the development of electronic commerce."

What do you like best?

I like it because it has a very easy to administer interface, it has a menu where I can see products, categories, brands and suppliers, sell and place orders, it is a complete tool that is available for small and big stores and exploit virtual commerce.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like about this program is that all the features that I can add are very expensive, besides it is not very customizable since it requires a staff with experience in this system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a very good tool to start your business in the digital world.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It benefits me because I can create my own virtual store without the need of programming knowledge, which allows me to make sales of my products and services.

"Bien pero le falta funcionalidades gratis"

What do you like best?

Completo cms con todo lo necesario para crear una tienda online. Base php con symphony bien diseñada y programada para el desarrollo de módulos. El backend es muy completo y esta bien organizado. Sin duda uno de los mejores cms para el ecommerce. Satisface la mayoria de necesidades de una tienda online.

La creación de cupones de descuento. La gestion completa de pedidos desde su creación hasta el envío y la creación de la factura. El apartado de envíos es muy completo y se puede generar envíos de todo tipo, que tengan en cuenta el peso de los productos a enviar. (si previamente se ha creado el catalogo)

What do you dislike?

Son caros los módulos, y no tiene todos los indispensables. su integridad en el código hace que tambien sea complicado realizar modificaciones. Aunque es muy completo le falta algunas cosas importantes. Por ejemplo no se pueden crear facturas negativas, cuando un cliente devuelve su producto. Algo que ocurre en muchas ocasiones en e-coomerce.

Por ultimo uno de los peores puntos es la creación de cátalogo, aunque el formularío es muy completo y esta bien estructurado, se convierte en algo muy tedioso, obligando a buscar soluciones de terceros de pago para agilizar este proceso.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Para webs con un gran catalago.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Montar tienda online para nuestro negocios y negocios a terceros. Hemos montado varias web de venta online que llevan funcionando perfectamente varios años. Estaría en medio entre Wordpress y Magento. Para soluciones intermedias de catálogo.

"An Honest Review After 3 Yrs+ Hands On"

What do you like best?

Great looking themes, very customisable, no transaction fees, cheaper development than Magento.

What do you dislike?

There are many bugs in the software and often you need to hire an expensive developer to solve the problem. The modules that you buy to do different things (eg: currency conversion, mailchimp sync, payment etc..) often conflict with each other, which causes bugs. When you try to solve a problem between modules, each developer blames the other party, leaving you in the middle without a solution. Unless you are a developer, you will need to hire one to do the most basic things. If you hire one from India, the hourly rate is not high, but be prepared that it will take many hours of development and related bug fixes to get what you want. Most addon modules will not work well "out of the box" and will require some hours of installation, and bug fixing to make them work. Sometimes they just won't work to your satisfaction at all, but you usually cannot get a refund - at best, you will get a "voucher" to use on other modules.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a medium to large business with some resources (ie: a dedicated IT person with experience of Prestashop and/or relevant programing languages), then Prestashop has some advantages. Mainly that it is very customisable. It also has many great looking theme templates to choose from. As a self-hosted solution, it also has some advantages for SEO over hosted solutions like Shopify and Bigcommerce.

However, if you are a small to medium business that wants the flexibility to quickly, easily and cheaply administer a website yourself or with a non-technical in-house team, Prestashop is definitely not for you. It will take you many hours, and considerable $, to get a solution that you are never quite happy with. The countless hours of bug fixes is time you could better spend on driving traffic and sales on your site.

Even if you are a larger business with IT resources, I would not recommend Prestashop. Instead you should choose Magento which has all the benefits of Prestashop (SEO, customisability etc..), but with on a more stable platform.

If you are a small to medium business, you should choose Shopify, which is extremely easy to use, stable, and just works. And trust me, using Shopify is a delight after years if problems and "bandaid" solutions with Prestashop.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

eCommerce platform that can be customised to your need (after considerable development work).

"Manage and design your virtual store in a simple way"

What do you like best?

This software allows me to create my virtual store very easily, has many templates and add-ons with which I can design and customize what I need, also has options to manage my products inventory, allows me to create promotions and has a very intuitive interface.

What do you dislike?

It is usually a bit difficult to install so it will require experienced staff, in addition the additional modules, as well as their complements are usually quite expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want to start your store and be able to manage it yourself, Prestashop is the ideal option, it is always in constant update and has most of the complements and integrations you may need in your e-commerce website.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this software I have been able to develop several highly interactive virtual stores with excellent options, it helps me to be able to manage my products and orders in a very easy and comfortable way.

What do you like best?

PrestaShop ofrece una forma fácil y gratuita de montar tu propia tienda online. Aunque necesitarás una base mínima de conocimientos, no es necesario ser un experto desarrollador web para conseguir muy buenos resultados. Todo se instala de una forma intuitiva a través de un asistente, finalmente accedemos a una panel donde podemos terminar de configurar todo y gestionar la tienda. Permite la inserción de módulos adicionales que añadan funciones extras. Internamente, tiene muchas funciones: gestión de artículos, categorías,proveedores, pedidos, facturas, pasarelas de pago, etc. Los resultados con unos pocos ajustes son bastante profesionales.

What do you dislike?

Aunque PrestaShop es gratuito, tiene módulos de pago que quizás son muy caros. Se necesitan al menos conocimientos básicos de desarrollo web. Debe mejorar en seguridad y en la compatibilidad con algunos servidores web con el tema de PHP.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lo recomiendo a cualquier persona o empresa que necesite una tienda online y no quiera invertir mucho dinero. Para grandes empresas buscaria otras opciones o desarrollos a medida, pero para pequeñas o medianas empresas es perfecto. Que sea gratuito es un gran punto a favor.

"Tu tienda online a golpe de click"

What do you like best?

Prestashop nos permite crear una tienda online de una forma sencilla sin tener muchos conocimientos de desarrollo o diseño web. Es de descarga gratutita y podemos instalarlo en nuestro servidor web a través de un asistente. Una vez funcionando, el aspecto visual es amigable, siendo fácil encontrar las distintas opciones y funciones que nos ofrece. Gestión de artículos, categorías, stocks, pedidos, facturas, gestión de envíos, etc. También tiene la posibilidad de avisarnos a nuestro móvil cuando haya cambios en nuestra tienda o distintas alertas. Podemos ampliar funcionar a través de módulos, aunque prácticamente todos son de pago.

What do you dislike?

El uso básico es sencillo, pero si quieres funciones avanzadas debes tener conocimientos varios previos, no es tanto una desventaja, porque se puede considerar normal este aspecto.

Los módulos que se ofrecen son de pago y la verdad bastante caros en la mayoría de los casos.

Aunque se permiten diferentes temas y personalizaciones visuales, debes tener conocimientos avanzados de diseño web.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Si estas empezando con un negocio online y tu tienda no es muy grande, es muy buena opción. Es gratuito y te ahorras un desembolso inicial. Si tienes algunos conocimientos web será todo fácil de llevar. En combinación con Wordpress puedes conseguir un resultado muy bueno.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Si estás pensando en montar un negocio online es muy buena opción. No tendrás que invertir prácticamente nada de dinero en la web y podrás llevar una gestión bastante decente de todo. Los resultados de las tiendas son llamativos y bastante profesionales.

"Tu tienda online de una forma efectiva"

What do you like best?

Prestashop se convierte en una seria opción cuando queremos trabajar con una tienda online. Un asistente en la instalación te ayuda en los primeros pasos y una vez tengas todo configurado, tienes acceso a un menú bastante intuitivo, donde tienes acceso a tus articulos, categorias, stocks, pedidos, facturas, clientes...etc. La configuración y ajustes pueden hacerse sin tener conocimientos muy avanzados y el uso del día a día está pensado para personas de cualquier nivel. Permite ampliar funciones a través de módulos y no necesitas un servidor web muy avanzado, aunque depende del número de visitas que esperes.

What do you dislike?

Aunque Prestashop es gratuito, los modulos en general no lo son. El problema es que son precios excesivos en muchos casos. Esto provoca que la principal ventaja de Prestashop que es su precio (gratis) luego no resulte serlo tanto si necesitas usar varios módulos adicionales.

Otra desventaja, aunque puede ser obvia, es que si necesitas hacer cambios drásticos en el diseño o funcionalidad vas a necesitar conocimientos avanzados de programación.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Si inicialmente no quieres invertir mucho dinero en tu negocio online y tienes algunos conocimientos de diseño o programacion web es perfecto, ya que puedes montar una tienda en unos pocos minutos.

Si por el contrario necesitas algo más específico o no tienes conocimientos, necesitarás la ayuda de algún profesional con el coste que tenga y probablemente perderás ya su principal ventaja, el precio gratuito que tiene.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Para una tienda online no muy exigente es perfecto y gratuito, por lo cual para alguna empresa que esté empezando es muy buena opción. Facilita el trabajo sin tener muchos conocimientos de la materia.

"Un buen gestor de tiendas online"

What do you like best?

PrestaShop nos permite poner en marcha una tienda online sin tener muchos conocimientos de desarrollo o diseño. Basta con instalarlo en nuestro servidor web con su asistente de instalación. Una vez operativo, nos encontramos ante una interfaz sencilla e intuitiva, donde encontremos todos los apartados para gestionar nuestra tienda. Tenemos posibilidad de instalar plugins y temas adicionales y todo de forma gratuita en muchos casos.

What do you dislike?

Tiene fallos de seguridad y muchos de los añadidos que podemos conseguir son de pago y caros en la mayoría de las veces. Aunque las opciones básicas no necesitan de muchos conocimientos, modificar cualquier apartado a nuestro gusto supone tener que tener conocimientos avanzados de PHP y programación.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Si tienes pensado montar una tienda online por tu cuenta, creo que es la mejor opción y la recomiendo. Si tienes al menos conocimientos básicos de desarrollo web puedes conseguir un buen resultado. El que sea gratuito desde luego invita a probarlo.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ahorras mucho tiempo y sobre todo dinero cuando quieres montar un negocio online. La gestión de pedidos, facturas y clientes es sencilla y se puede llevar todo de forma organizada.

"Pon tu tienda onle en funcionamiento en unos minutos"

What do you like best?

PrestaShop nos ofrece una forma fácil de preparar una tienda online sin muchos conocimientos. Si tienes un servidor web, la instalación es fácil a través de un asistente que te guía en todo momento. El panel de control es intuitivo y permite controlar los aspectos propios de una tienda (gestión de artículos, promociones, categorías, pedidos, facturación, etc). Todo de una forma gratuita, ya que su instalación es libre.

What do you dislike?

Casi todos los módulos son de pago, y no precisamente baratos. Aunque su uso básico es sencillo, si quieres realizar cambios a medida o salir de las opciones por defecto ya necesitas conocimientos avanzados. Algunos bugs por mejorar, al igual que la seguridad.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Ahora mismo creo que es la.mejor opción si estás pensando en montar una tienda online. Gratuito y con una gran comunidad detrás. Si necesitas módulos adicionales piénsalo bien, porque son muy caros y en algunos casos de no mucha calidad.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Antes montar una tienda online era costo y se necesitaba mucho tiempo de desarrollo. Con PrestaShop eso se ha acabado. Puedes montar y gestionar una tienda de una forma mucho más fácil y directa con cientos de configuraciones que permiten adaptarla a diferentes negocios.

"The best option to create your online store"

What do you like best?

It is a gesture of very complete and ideal content to create online stores, has excellent inventory options and you can also configure almost all the elements of the web, something I like is that I can find a wide variety of templates and accessories at affordable prices.

What do you dislike?

The installation of this content manager is a bit complex, although some hosting has an option to install it quickly this is not always the full version, as their templates are usually different and some have more options than others.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend it if you are thinking of developing any type of electronic commerce, Prestashop has an infinity of ideal characteristics for this area.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This tool allows me to create powerful secure virtual stores, I almost do not need to have programming experience to be able to create the pages since it has a very intuitive user interface.

"PrestaShop. Un gran CMS"

What do you like best?

Prestashop es un sistema de gestión de contenido online (CMS). Facilita todo lo que es la instalación de un sitio web que sirve para vender y comprar online y conseguir unos buenos ingresos.

Funcionan con plantillas para crear el diseño o la apariencia de nuestra tienda. Generalmente son de pago, aunque también podemos encontrar algunas gratuitas.

Esto hace que sin conocimientos de desarrollo de código html ni css sea posible lanzar online una tienda.

Lo que más me gusta de prestashop es:

Es OpenSource, puedes modificar su código cuando y como necesites.

Instalación sencilla y rápida a través de una interfaz web.

Muchos tutoriales en español puedes encontrar online.

Prestasho es bastante seguro, recibe muy pocos ataques que WordPress o Joomla.

Existe la opción de multitienda, para administrar varias tiendas desde un único administrador.

Permite hacer un muy buen SEO.

Panel de control intuitivo y sencillo.

What do you dislike?

Entre los aspectos menos atractivos de prestashop mencionaré que:

- La curva de aprendizaje del CMS es más dificultosa que WordPress.

- Necesitas contratar un servicio de Hosting PHP-MySQL, y esto si es de pago.

- No hay tantas plantillas como en Wordpress.

- Existen multitud de módulos atractivos, pero también son de pago.

- Necisitas dedicarle mucho mucho tiempo para tener una tienda online productiva.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Si te quieres iniciar en el mundo de las tiendas online y no tienes conocimientos de desarrollo html5 ni css3, prestashop debe ser un cms a tener muy en cuenta.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Se utiliza como herramienta educativa para iniciar a nuestros alumnos de los cursos de formación de disñeo web en un buen gestor de contenido, al igual que también utilizamos wordpress. Se dan unas nociones básicas para que los estudiantes puedan iniciarse en un proyecto.

"El mejor gestor para tiendas online"

What do you like best?

Instalación sencilla y un uso muy optimizado hacen de Prestashop tu mejor opción si quieres montar una tienda online. Es gratuito y tiene un asistente de instalación que hace todo más fácil. Luego nos encontramos con un panel muy intuitivo, donde podemos llevar la gestión de nuestra tienda de forma completa (artículos, imágenes, categorías, pedidos, etc)y también de la web añadiendo nuevos módulos que amplian la funcionalidad del sitio web o lo mejoran. Todo sin tener muchos conocimientos de diseño y apto para casi cualquiera que tenga unos conocimientos mínimos de gestión.

What do you dislike?

La mayoría de los módulos son de pago. Se entiende porque no puede ser todo gratis, pero comparado con otros CMS, Prestashop tiene modulos muy caros. Seguridad mejorable, aunque no esta mal. Problemas con ciertos bancos en las pasarelas de pago, aunque no esto no es culpa directa de Prestashop, pero si de los módulos que lo gestionan.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Muy recomendable, no vas a encontrar nada mejor si quieren montar una tienda online. Sirve tanto para algo básico y sencillo como para algo más avanzado si tienes más conocimientos. Resultados muy profesionales y bastante seguro en general, aunque mejorable como todo. Imprescindible para los que se dediquen al sector.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ha sido un gran avance y una gran ventaja disponer de algo como Prestashop. Prácticamente tienes montada una tienda online en pocos minutos y sin muchos conocimientos. Tiene algunos rivales como VirtueMart, pero bajo mi punto de vista es superior.

"El mejor CMS para tiendas online"

What do you like best?

PrestaShop posee diversas ventajas. Lo primero que nos encontramos es su precio, es totalmente gratuito. El sistema de instalación en nuestro servidor web es guiado y sencillo. Posee una gran comunidad detrás y nos permite construir una tienda online sin excesivos conocimientos de programación o diseño web. Multitud de plugins o módulos a nuestra disposición.

What do you dislike?

Casi todo el contenido adicional es de pago, y no precisamente barato. Problemas de seguridad que hace que sea sensible a recibir ataques. Ciertas tareas se hacen un poco pesadas de ejecutar o llevar a cabo.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lo recomiendo sin duda. Hay otras opciones como Virtuemart o módulos para WordPress, pero no consiguen todo el contenido y opciones que nos ofrece PrestaShop. Si trabajas con tienda online es tu mejor opción.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hemos mejorado en todo. Hacer una tienda online te podía llevar meses de desarrollo y con PrestaShop la haces en dos ratos. Por su puesto para darle un toque profesional hay que emplear tiempo. Una vez funcionando tiene multitud se opciones y ayuda en el control de artículos, stocks, existencias, etc

"Bueno para pequeños ecommerce"

What do you like best?

Prestashop tiene la ventaja de que es fácil de instalar, económico y muy sencillo de usar. Se puede descargar gratuito, se instala en un servidor, y en minutos ya se puede estar subiendo los productos a tu ecommerce. Tiene módulos para casi todo, algunos son pagos, pero no son tan caros. No hace falta saber mucho de programación para configurar una tienda en Prestashop. Ademas, tiene una gran comunidad activa donde se puede conseguir ayuda de casi todo.

What do you dislike?

Es muy limitado en lo que se puede hacer sin tocar el código. Para modificar la estructura de la pagina hay que saber de lenguajes de programación HTML, CSS. Para tener opciones mas amplias, hay que pagar módulos o programarlos uno mismo.

El soporte propio de Prestashop nunca me ha funcionado, y siempre he tenido que recurrir a la comunidad de usuarios, en los foros de Prestashop, para obtener ayuda.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Si tienes un pequeño e-commerce, vale la pena instalar Prestashop. Pero si recomendaría que contratara un programador web junior, o si sabes un poco de HTML puede ser usted mismo, y edite la plantilla para que no se vea tan genérica la pagina.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Con Prestashop pude comenzar a vender en menos de una semana. Me tomó tiempo fué en editar la plantilla que viene por defecto, pero una pagina, que tomaría por lo menos un mes en programar, tomó solo unos días. Ademas, lo hice pagando casi nada.

"Straightforward setup, flexible and extendable but slow and difficult to support."

What do you like best?

Multi-lingual, multi-currency capabilities and relatively simple setup and management. You don't need extensive technical knowledge to get this working. There is a very large selection of 3rd party modules available but at very different price levels (be prepared to get what you pay for!)

What do you dislike?

Version 1.6 was slow and not stable enough. Too many occasions where the database was corrupted, a module was installed which brought the site down or other issues that were very hard to track down. Also, the pool of Prestashop experts isn't huge. Although Prestashop is open source and free, be prepared to invest in quite a few modules to extend functionality and make life simpler. Payment processing, shipping, checkout, sliders and others.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We have been working with V1.6 for a few years and it did its job but not without some grief. Issues with site speed, support and stability. It looks like some of these issues have been resolved in V1.7 which looks good but not sure we'll be sticking with them to find out! You are going to need to purchase a number of 3rd party modules but be sure to shop around and don't go for the free or cheap ones (you get what you pay for). You will also be wise to have some technical support on hand and make sure to get a 3rd party backup module so that you can always roll back to previous versions if you run into problems.

In addition, make sure you have a good server, a cache implemented and a Content Data Network.. you'll need all this to get response times down.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We wanted to setup a store quickly and easily on our own virtual server and have been running it for nearly 2 years. Overall a great ROI.

"La más potente plataforma de comercio electrónico que yo conozco"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor, a parte de que es gratuita, es que es una plataforma que toca todos los ambitos de un comercio electrónico, la gestión de los productos, los envíos, los descuentos, las devoluciones, etc y luego mediante plugins que son muchos y tambien gratuitos, puedes mejorar tu tienda online añadiendo modulos de analitica, seo, mejoras de la interfaz como carruseles, etc. Tambien hay que destacar que año tras año, el producto va evolucionando y actualizandose, asi como las plantillas, que no se quedan antiguas y todo gracias al esfuerzo de la comunidad web

What do you dislike?

Aunque esta mejorando mucho, es cierto que cuando quieres realizar alguna modificación en la web, cuesta tiempo saber si la modificación esta en la plantilla, en el modulo, en las traducciones, etc. Es bastante costoso modificar algo ya que está todo muy empaquetado, pero tambien es cierto que cuando le dedicas un poco de tiempo luego no hay mucha dificultad.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Primero el precio, es gratuito, luego la capacidad de personalización, hay una comundiad muy grande de desarrolladores creando plugins y templates, algunas de pago y otras no.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Si tienes un presupuesto limitado y tus aspiraciones son tener un negocio pequeño o mediano, deberias plantearte utilizar prestashop como plataforma de comercio electrónico, si miras ejemplos verás hasta donde te puede llevar.

"E-commerse? Use Prestashop!"

What do you like best?

I started to use and adjust Prestashop not knowing anything about the platform. Saying that I built a complete online shop with it would be the best illustration of how user-friendly it. (well, to be honest my experienced colleague was there to support me as well). TPV adjustment for a newcomer would be the most difficult part, but for an experienced user it is easy. I also liked the part of being able to form payment bills for the clients directly in the platform. You are also able to choose a transportation company to deliver your goods according to the timing and prices that you need or even offer several transportation companies for your buyer.

What do you dislike?

We had some bugs with saving descriptions of the products (they were not saving), but finally turned out to be our mistake in the adjustments.

"Prestashop: A fully featured E-Commerce solution and it's FREE!"

What do you like best?

From a final user point of view I think that the most attractive thing about Prestashop is that it can be deployed quickly and you can start customizing and uploading products, you can really wake up not having a store and go to bed with a couple of sells made.

Prestashop offers a fully featured product for entrepreneurs or stablished brick-and-mortar businesses alike, someone whos starts to use Prestashop will not realize all the features it offers because they are many and you don't really pay attention to statistics or cross sells when you start but they are available when you want to use them and you don't have to pay an upgrade for that, unlike other ecommerce solutions.

From a developer point of view, Prestashop offers a quick solution for customers who want a scalable complete solution and they don't want to wait for it, so you can deploy and then develop on it while products are uploaded and people are trained.

Even when every successful online store comes to a moment of its life when it needs a bigger hosting (VPS, dedicated, Cloud instance), Prestashop runs on less resources than woocommerce and has a nice cache module, so the transition can wait until you get ROI enough to move on, if that is still not enough for the large number of users, you can always depend on cloudflare to stay productive.

What do you dislike?

The learning curve for producing your own themes and modules might be an issue when you start working with it, but it pays off.

The addons marketplace is really expensive and conditions are unattractive to developers and clients alike, so as a developer, you might want to find an alternative for selling your modules and themes.

Prestashop recently made a long expected move and jumped to v1.7, these changes made some previous versions' modules ans themes useless, so if you're thinking about using it or developing for it, you should take versions and compatibility into account.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Think about the Prestashop version you want to take on, as a developer you may have a blue ocean in front of you, as an user maybe not so much.

Other than that, if your concerns are just going online, Prestashop is the right solution to do it, quick and easy to set up, complete online merchant features, most payment gateways have one-click-to-install modules so you can easily get paid by Paypal, Skrill or any other payment company you like and there are thousands of tutorials online where you can find how to do what you want to do.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a final user, Prestashop handles orders, customer registration, mail alerts, payments, product catalogue, stock (including advanced stock management), shipping, discounts, languages, currencies, social media plugins and you can easily add chat and other free modules, so it takes care of everything and lets you know when you are needed.

As a developer / agency, we have found a quick way of deploying default versions of Prestashop stores with adaptations to each country by the use of scripts, so our clients can be online in one day and start working on their shops while we develop / install themes and modules.

"A flexible and reliable platform to introduce your shop to the world"

What do you like best?

My most favorite thing is that PrestaShop is exclusively designed for e-shop creation, thus the platform has all the features that one could wish for. It's also quite easy to get around and use the software regardless if you are a beginner or advanced developer. It also has pretty great and in-depth documentation, allowing you to quickly learn the platform and make the most of it. The community of PrestaShop is also very large, therefore you may look for a lot of solutions and other information online.

What do you dislike?

Depending on the size of your website, PrestaShop can sometimes run quite slow. Also, most plug-ins and extensions are paid, meaning that you might need to invest some money if you have no idea how to develop a certain feature for your website.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The software itself is free, so make sure to give it a try!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to create a shop-type website very easily. One other thing is that it allows you to spend more time on the actual content, as there are not much coding that you will need to do to create a basic store.

"Useful for online business"

What do you like best?

My ecommerce shop is run entirely using PrestaShop. What I like best about it would probably be the fact that it's free, but not necessarily limited. It has tons of features to make your shop run smoothly. You can customize everything according to the country you're in and sell to. Once you get the hang of it, it's quite easy to use.

What do you dislike?

While PrestaShop is huge, it is not as huge/famous as Wordpress or Shopify. Therefore it has limited plugins or modules as well. The better modules are for up for sale and they can get really expensive. Also, if you like to customize, you have to be quite knowledgeable with coding as it can get technical.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Don't hesitate! If you're looking to build an ecommerce shop with the complete package, without spending too much, it's PrestaShop all the way.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

PrestaShop offers multi-stores and I found that helpful especially when you have different settings for different countries you sell to.
