Overall Satisfaction with PrestaShop
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.
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.
I would think that PrestaShop is suited for anyone who wants to be more hands-on with their site. You are able to customize practically any aspect of the platform to fit your needs. This is also very developer friendly so the coding and customizations are not difficult to adapt to.
