As compared to other open-source systems, PrestaShop has the most elegant backend interface. Most of your standard eCommerce features come default: 1. Invoice and Delivery documents in PDF, 2. Promotion and discount mechanism, 3. SEO functionalities, 4. Quick access, 5. Statistics, 6. Categorization, Brands, Attributes, Features/Filters, sorting, pagination, list or grid view.

The next best thing is the stability of versions. Currently, at only ver1.7, this is the only open-source CMS that doesn't require the constant nightmare of updating and breaking the site. The open-source community is still offering modules for ver1.5, 1.6 and 1.7.

If you need modules to enhance the features, it is also a one-time cost since the versions are so stable. The experiences with 3rd party module developers are very good so far. Most modules are from EUR49-100.

I've tried other open-source software like PrestaShop, but the others were either more complex, didn't have the right plugins for me to use in my country, or didn't have my preferred look in terms of how I wanted my business to be represented as an e-commerce site. PrestaShop was easy to use and quick to learn. I could input products very easily and it operated close to what I wanted.

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.

Magento (open source): very technical and complicated to install and configure
OpenCart: Easy to install, very fast, lacks in functionality--needs extra modules
WooCommerce: OK, but runs on top of WordPress, product configurations very simple - missing out on complex product variants

I often built websites for businesses and friends and I am experienced with different platforms out there. Some of my customers sometimes prefer one e-commerce solution over the other because it have some functionalities that they may be interested in, like shipping or payment methods. In my opinion PrestaShop has many shipping and payment gateways that are not found with other e-commerce solutions.

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.
