Overall Satisfaction with PrestaShop

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.
  • Administration panel is easy and essential
  • Product configuration is ready to go and product page comes with lots of information
  • It doesn't require huge server resources
  • Since it starts as ready to go platform it's difficult to protect your store from being copied by someone else
  • Without a developer, you depend on Prestashop's modules marketplace that lacks free extensions
  • Since it isn't an enterprise level platform the use of Prestashop is strictly related to the size of your business
  • Prestashop requires a low investment, you can easily find an agency that could develop a project for less than $5,000
  • You yearly ROI should be assured
From a developer point of view Prestashop offers more than other similar platforms.
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.
