PrestaShop is a clean, customisable, and user friendly shopping cart solution, designed to help users build and manage an online store quickly and easily.
PrestaShop looks great and it’s easy to use, making it an ideal ecommerce solution for professionals and amateurs. PrestaShop includes tons of awesome features, from statistics and search engine optimisation tools to multiple payment and shipping options, and there are loads of themes, extensions, and modules available to help you customise the functionality and appearance of your ecommerce site. Plus, PrestaShop allows unlimited categories, shipping carriers, languages, and currencies, so it’s a great choice for small and large online stores.
Compared to a number of other open source ecommerce applications, PrestaShop is relatively lightweight, but it still includes a lot of the features offered by more complex shopping cart solutions. While you don’t need to have loads of technical knowledge to use PrestaShop, some basic coding skills will definitely come in handy.
If you do get stuck, PrestaShop offers lots of information to help users make the most of their online stores, including an SEO guide, performance optimisation tips, and extensive documentation for users, developers, and designers. Plus, they have a forum with over 300,000 members, so you can ask the community for help, as well as find the answers to questions other people have already asked. If you want to see some examples of online stores powered by PrestaShop, then check out their gallery of live sites. You can also view demos of PrestaShop’s admin area and front end to help you determine if this is the right ecommerce application for your needs.
