They seem to be very well suited to startup websites.We need to almost threaten to leave to get them to pay attention to us, a 10-year customer and a larger company. When they do pay attention, we pretty much got the royal treatment. When we have brought new ideas and concepts to them, they make us pay for the upgrade, then offer that upgrade to all other customers. Essentially we fell like we are funding their R&D at times.

PrestaShop

Being a self-hosted solution, it is well suited for people who have a minimum of technical and coding knowledge. If you have no technical skills, you may need to go with other options that are hosted. Also, if you are not willing to invest in customizations and add-ons, PrestaShop would not be the best option to go with.

Pros

3dcart

  • 3dcart is a more basic website tool that can get customers started quickly.
  • It only has a certain amount of options, making it an ok tool to use if you don't need a particularly large website.

PrestaShop

  • Administration panel is easy and essential
  • Product configuration is ready to go and product page comes with lots of information
  • It doesn't require huge server resources

Cons

3dcart

  • 3dcart does not connect to many of the POS systems my clients use so we need to manually update inventory daily/weekly.
  • There are many modules available to do many different things, but it makes you feel like you are being tickled and died to death to get the site to do exactly what you want. Also can be confusing if you don't know what you actually need.
  • It's a little difficult/confusing to upload products with multiple variations - ie: color and size - especially if there are multiples colors and multiple sizes.

PrestaShop

  • Documentation and support needs to be updated and expanded. There's a lack of books, and the only support aside from the forum is official prestashop support, which is not cheap. The system is too massive to have such little support.
  • Too many things can go wrong with too little explanation as to why. Too much time is wasted trying to figure out why prestashop isn't working as intended because of this. Seems that most of the questions online are people fumbling around with vague issues and errors and no explanation.
  • Code should either be organized more intuitively, or there should be more help outlining what is going on during runtime for debug purposes. Why is there not a built in way to display the tpl that is being loaded in each section? I tried figuring out how to do it myself using the documentation but gave up. Instead I have to swim through the entire code to figure out how to do it myself. Should not be this complicated.
  • Too many things can go wrong when transferring or copying the website, which essentially breaks everything. Again, too little help and messages explaining why things don't work. Internet search shows that this is a common issue.

Not applicable - as a franchisee, the franchiser took over the web site and shopping cart capabilities, so I no longer need the tool. But I would recommend it.

Alternatives Considered

3dcart

While Shopify is pretty slick in operation, Shopify's fees are way, way, way too expensive compared to 3Dcart.Magento required a hefty redesign price Tag. BigCommerce seemed like overkill for our needs as an e-commerce company. Big Commerce has some very good material to help you decide on how to pick an e-commerce engine that was helpful to us.

In the past I have used Magento, which is a very popular platform, but personally it didn't sit well with me because of the complexity of the back-end and how inconvenient it was for developers. Shopify is more for a quick setup and hands-off approach. It's good for those who want a simple install with minimal involvement.

Return on Investment

3dcart

  • Because 3dcart ended up not being the best for our business, we decided to go with BigCommerce instead.
  • It was an excellent platform to consider, and we tried it for a time but quickly realized it did not provide what our business needed.

PrestaShop

  • Get the work done.
  • Not very SEO friendly.
