At Evohosting, we’re huge fans of PrestaShop, an open source ecommerce application designed to help users create attractive and functional online stores. However, the question a lot of people have is, “How does it compare to Magento?”
Magento has long been the open source ecommerce application of choice for web designers and developers, mainly due to its huge range of features and eye-catching appearance. In contrast, PrestaShop has fewer features than Magento, yet it still provides the functionality most users needs. Plus, PrestaShop is easier to use, and runs fantastically on shared hosting, whereas Magento often struggles to perform well in shared hosting environments.
Not only does PrestaShop surpass Magento when it comes to usability and performance, but it also rivals Magento in appearance. To prove this, I’ve chosen several of my favourite live stores built with PrestaShop , so you can see the possibilities for yourself!
It’s amazing how great a store built using an open source application like PrestaShop can look! If you’d like to see even more stores using PrestaShop, please visit their live shop showcase.
