OpenCart

OpenCart is great for web developers familiar with PHP who have clients who want very specific eCommerce functionalities. OpenCart is "open-source," meaning its source code is open to the public and downloadable and editable by anyone. This makes customizing its functionalities possible with nearly an infinite variety of possibilities. If you are not tech savvy and don't like to read documentation and configure advanced settings, then OpenCart is not the best solution for you.

PrestaShop

Prestashop offers a quick solution for companies who want a scalable solution in less time and with a low budget requirement. It's perfect for startup and pilot-projects. For example, it's very hard to put Prestashop in the middle of a multi-channel business due to security risks, difficult to exchange data from one database to another, API requests and more.

Cons

OpenCart

  • It's a very buggy platform. Although OpenCart developers release new versions time to time after fixing bugs every version of OpenCart has a different type of bug.
  • It should increase the security of the platform.

Alternatives Considered

OpenCart

Some of the products available on the market are cheap, but they are not as easily to use or understand as OpenCart. Many are also not open source products, so you need to buy. You can purchase modules for OpenCart. Support is also easily available for OpenCart in the OpenCart forum. The admin portal of OpenCart is also more advanced than any other product out there.

From a developer point of view Prestashop offers more than other similar platforms.
