OpenCart

OpenCart is best suited for business owners looking to sell their products online. Building an OpenCart website requires no or minimal coding knowledge. Being a self-hosted system, it is not recommended for people who have no hosting plan or have no experience in hosting websites so it would be better to go with another platform that is hosted elsewhere.

PrestaShop

This is a great system for small and medium businesses dealing from 1 product to 100,000 products. It is elegant to use and very stable.The system may not be great for converting into a marketplace and the handling of > 1million products. The system is also not suitable for services selling like events, registrations, subscriptions and ticket bookings etc.

Pros

OpenCart

  • OpenCart is well suited in cases where our eCommerce web development clients want a very specific design with very specific shopping cart functionalities.
  • OpenCart is very flexible in its native ability to work with a wide variety of payment processors and payment gateways.
  • OpenCart makes it both fast and easy to setup and configure a new shopping cart website, especially if you use one of the pre-made templates.

PrestaShop

  • The PayPal button modality was integrated with the PrestaShop system, which helped our clients to complete payments digitally in just a few seconds, this integrated button allowed to streamline many transactions.
  • Performing inventory reviews and modifying the PrestaShop catalog was one of the things that I liked the most, I could make changes to the catalog, make changes to the conditions of the products in the catalog and all those changes were reflected on my website in a instant, no need to wait some time.
  • The PrestaShop system created a digital invoice for each client who made the advance payment of a property, which made it even easier to complete the property negotiation. Customers came to our company with the digital invoice for the advance payment and it was easy to identify the property that was paid, thanks to the digital invoice.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

PrestaShop

  • Not a lot of free templates.
  • Images can sometimes be too compressed and lose their full quality, so better settings for that could be introduced.
  • Being able to change the look of your automatic emails via default settings can also be introduced.

The lack of performance and the unstable system make it very hard to use it for a serious e-commerce application.

Some caching and optimization is definitely needed. However, it is not as bloated as other CMSs with lots of plugins needed.

Since we use PrestaShop OpenSource there is only community support. What we found is that many other users fight with the same problems and there seems no solution or input from the PrestaShop developers' side.

Alternatives Considered

OpenCart

Honestly, when consulting my clients, I would always recommend WooCommerce over OpenCart. Although I've had clients that had existing OpenCart websites and they were fairly happy with them, making additions/changes/customizations from a developer standpoint was not the easiest compared to other systems. For very large shops, I always recommend Magento over anything else.
Jen Garfinkel-Canseco | TrustRadius Reviewer

PrestaShop

It's a no-brainer for e-commerce stores. BigCommerce and Magento both far out-distanced PrestaShop in every major category. If you're just getting into e-commerce, I would highly recommend either BigCommerce or Magento. Their online documentation and support far outweigh any advantages you'd have over going with an open source software like PrestaShop.

Return on Investment

OpenCart

  • Clients loves the design which is easy to integrate to; you can integrate multiple themes.
  • Overall user experience is good, so number of conversions is good.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

PrestaShop

  • It slowed down our Hosting service. Our website took a long time to fully load on our clients' devices due to the high consumption of the integration with the PrestaShop service.
  • It provided us with a fast billing service, where our clients obtained invoices in PDF mode for the electronic payments they made for the properties. These digital invoices helped us to recognize the property they wanted faster and streamlined the negotiation process.
  • The templates that had an optimized design, were too expensive, this caused that our catalog design was very simple and did not capture the interest of customers.
