The Best PrestaShop Ecommerce Sites

  (by )

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!

    From experience of using prestashop while they are easy to install and setup, managing the backend of the site to what you want can be quite a difficult task. My advice when setting up a shop is to carefully map out how you want your products and categories to display and how you want to manage the shop. I found certain error with uploading products / cats and found different versions of prestashop has technical bugs that required some adjusting.
    Overall, I recommend prestashop for building up e-commerce sites, but just make sure that you run several trails, tests of the software to get used to it before you start uploading all your products.
