We are currently using it to run our e-commerce website. Our daily sales are all used via website, which we've designed through PrestaShop. It's being used across our whole organization. We currently don't have a warehouse or physical shop, so all our items are being sold online and delivered to our customers directly. Currently PrestaShop is working exactly as we want it to. There were a few limitations using PrestaShop 1.6, but with the current update to 1.7, we haven't had really any business issues making use of PrestaShop.

PrestaShop started being used in our company because I decided to buy it and thus allow our clients to buy properties more quickly without having to carry out a long interaction process with us. When we founded our real estate company, I bought and implemented PrestaShop on our website so that our clients could add the property they liked the most to their cart, and pay for a part of the property with common electronic payment methods, such as PayPal or credit card . PrestaShop brought us excellent benefits during the first months, it was a platform that helped us make many sales, it made it possible for our clients to be able to choose their property more easily, adding it to the cart and clicking the "buy" button, in addition, our clients they could quickly pay for a portion of the property with digital methods, which progressively spurred negotiations. It brought very good benefits during the time he was in our company, however, we stopped using PrestaShop because we wanted to implement a much simpler system on our website that would allow customers to make direct inquiries with us about the available properties. Currently, our clients can access our website and make inquiries by mail or mobile phone, using the code of each property, this allows clients to know what they are buying and to learn more about the property before making any payment.

PrestaShop was used for a trial we ran as we launched an online storefront to sell a handful of handmade goods from another country. It was used across our organization by several individuals to upload, customize, and post products for customers to purchase. It solves a lot of the issues presented to an organization that wants to sell items as this app provides all the functionality needed.

We were recommended PrestaShop by a consultancy group that helped us with some BigCommerce customization. PrestaShop is an open source software and we thought we'd have more leeway in modification than we have with BigCommerce. We chose PrestaShop to serve as our e-commerce platform for our primary website and several supplementary websites.

Last year we started the process to move from an outdated Magento installation to a new e-commerce platform. After reviewing several systems, we found PrestaShop met our needs best and started the migration process. During the configuration process we noticed that the system can get very complex and especially the slow performance caused us a lot of headaches. In due time we had to upgrade our server resources to a least be able to work with the system without running into Ajax issues. Another very annoying problem are random white screens, especially in the admin area.

PrestaShop is a powerful and open-source free e-commerce solution. It is a great tool for building online shopping cart websites. PrestaShop is self-hosted meaning you need to have a hosting plan and some technical and coding knowledge to set it up. Customizing PrestaShop can get a little bit tricky especially if you need custom functionalities although there are plenty of third-party extensions and add-ons that you can implement into the platform.

As a consultant, I guided a company using Prestashop for their first e-commerce project. My brief was to look for a platform that comes with the larger number of features and that doesn't require high investments while developing additional functions. The choice goes to Prestashop because it represents the easier and a low budget solution which fits most needs of tiny/small companies.

All six of our websites use prestashop and it is our only e-commerce platform. Our company sells laser engraved products and our websites give customers a chance to view and purchase the items. One of the websites is for the general public, and the others are for internal clients. The back office is used by persons in each department of our company.

I've been using Prestashop for the last 4 years and I'm constantly impressed with the advancements and user-friendliness of the platform. Whether you are a hardcore developer or new to the industry, PrestaShop makes it very convenient to get you up and running. Also the developer community is highly active so you're able to find assistance from active users in the community with any problem that you might have.
