#8296 What is right choice for your online shop: PrestaShop vs. Magento?

Posted by alexnguyen on 09 June 2016 - 04:15 AM

Both Prestashop and Magento are open source and becomes popular e-commerce platform. Depending on users demands, you can choose the most suited one for your online business. Below comparison is one suggestion:

Who Should Choose Magento?
Magento is perfect for those looking for full control over the customization of their online store. Wide range of enterprise grow quickly will find the features of Magento a better fit than PrestaShop.
Who Should Choose PrestaShop?
Smaller businesses or those not looking to grow quickly will find the user-friendly option of PrestaShop to fit perfectly with their needs. This system makes it easy to keep cost down and you won’t need to invest as much time into setting everything up.
Prestashop is free to download and install basic application on the server, then users can decide what functionality is needed and only pay for the modules they need.
Magento is pretty different with 2 editions. With Magento Community Edition, you also have to pay no fee for charge. In other side, Enterprise Edition of Magento really spends for the biggest players because of its large yearly subscription fee.  
However, the same thing here is the hosting service for long run is not free, in both cases.  Web developers and store owners may have to pay for most of the professional themes, designs and extensions also.
Because of no available of hosted solution, the installation of Prestashop depends on the host you select for your ecommerce website. If your host offers one-click installation, no technical knowledge requirement to install and vice versa. In general, PrestaShop is easy to understand to set up stores or add products. 
The Magento installation depends on the version you choose. As spending for startups or small-scale enterprises, Magento Go servers seem to be ready to setup and nothing difficult. With Magento Enterprise Edition, it is more complicated with large and multinational corporations.
The two platforms are significantly different when it comes to having questions to answer or problems to solve.
If facing to some problem or any wonders about PrestaShop, users can join online community and discuss with other users or professionals. But it is seldom to get the official supports. Moreover, when coming across a lot of smaller bugs, PrestaShop installation only implies some technical knowledge to suggest you to fix on your own.
Regarding Magento, official supports come with only users choosing expensive Enterprise Edition. With the others, there is a community including a lot of talented and enthusiastic web developers who can be contacted any time on the different online forums.
Experts point out that even though PrestaShop includes some basic optimization possibilities, Magento is much stronger in the field of SEO with lots of opportunities to attract high traffic to your website.
Be responsive from 2014, Magento is compatible with all platform kinds, which brings user-friendly interface. This point makes Google’s algorithm rank Magento sites in good searching results. PrestaShop now is also mobile- friendly, so SEO in its website is improved completely.
PrestaShop offers over 300 features so becomes powerful ecommerce solution for small business or startups having not too large budget. Besides free software installation, users only have to pay for extra necessary extensions. Free features include:
• Layered navigation 
• Fully customizable templates
• Promotion rules
• Unlimited currencies
• Unlimited product and inventory management
• Analytics and reporting
• Multi-store management
• Return management
In this aspect, features and benefits offered by Magento are similar to PrestaShop with the added advantage that Magento Go is suitable for mobile applications and devices. Magento Go however does not offer gifting options.
Both platforms are open-source code systems, so certainly lots of different plugins and extensions are available. PrestaShop is simpler in installation and handling of the modules, even for the beginners, while you will need an expert with specific competence and experience to support installation modules with Magento.
In conclusion, hope this comparison can help you have right solution for your business. And if you are owning an unsatisfactory site and wanna transfer to the other, experts recommend you some helpful tools:

#7024 What business should use Prestashop Cloud?

Posted by James on 29 March 2016 - 04:24 AM


Prestashop Cloud is an alternative solution for hosting website with Prestashop users. Cloud hosting is a network of servers that allow websites to be hosted on multiple servers.

After its launch in January 2015, Prestashop Cloud is an exciting move and becomes a new choice for e-merchants beside self-hosted Prestashop. While self-hosted Prestashop allows you to download and install on your website, it is easy and quick to create Prestashop Cloud store with an email address.

Should or not should use Prestashop Cloud is still a hot debate topic for businesses. If you have plan to use Prestashop Cloud instead of self-hosted Prestashop, you should read the article that shows overview about Prestashop Cloud.

  1. It is easy to create an account on Prestashop Cloud and host shopping cart free.
  2. Do not need to install software. You can start to sell products on Prestashop servers in no time.
  3. You can add a custom domain name at any time.
  4. Speed hosting is high.
  5. Developer can choose any of the hundreds of themes and modules on Prestashop Addons
  1. Registering Prestashop Cloud account free, but you need to purchase built-in modulesfrom Addons to add more features and extend functionality of website.
  2. It only supports to use modules and themes on Prestashop Addons. You can’t use new themes from other sources. Different modules and themes are warned that they are unsafe and incompatible to Prestashop Cloud, so which are not allowed on the platform.
  3. It is limited to customize the default template. Storeowners can only change some of the default theme’s setting including color, font and lay-out; adjust logo, website icons of standard theme.
  4. You don’t have full control on management of your store. After logging in to your account, you can see dashboard to manage on your PrestaShop Cloud back-office. However, it is the fact that you only change products and services by store editor. The store is yours, but Prestashop has the highest power on managing your site.
  5. It does not allow you to access to database and change SQL database.
  6. Prestashop do not give members permission to get their hands in the code. If storeowner want to expand scale of store, they can’t export the code, which means that developers have to rebuild the website.
  7. SSL security is currently impossible.


People recognize that Prestashop Cloud is only suitable for small business to start an online store quickly with a little technical knowledge. It solves the problem about budget in the first period. However, when the number of products increases, Prestashop Cloud is not a good choice, you must build your website again from the beginning. Experts recommend you to choose self-hosted Prestashop to be independent in editing and managing your website, especially with stores carrying frequently changing product. Storeowners have full control on source code. Developers can customize e-commerce store according to their necessary.


If you want to migrate your shopping cart to Prestashop site now, migration tool of LitExtension supports you to implement hosting for new Prestashop.

#6231 Prestashop, Magento or WooCommerce?

Posted by alexnguyen on 11 January 2016 - 08:29 AM

Online business are an attractive area to get into the digital age. ECommerce sales worldwide will reach $1.672 trillion online in 2015. Moreover, increasing of eCommerce platforms allows businesses to have many opportunities to approach new customers and many choices to maximize the potential of resources. People witnessed an amazing comeback of WooCommerce plugin in eCommerce market share in 2015.


Most of the Top 100 online retailer use in-house-built eCommerce platforms.



WooCommerce becomes the new leader at the end of 2015 with the share of 26%. Magento Community decreased by 0.5% from 25.3% till 24.8% that is the result since May 2015. Magento Enterprise and Prestashop slight increased by 0.5% and 0.4% respectively. Three biggest platforms (WooCommerce, Magento and Prestashop) take 65% of eCommerce market share.

WooCommerce has lower barrier to entry about technology and finance, which is the reason why it is difficult to stop WooCommerce plugins expanding its share. Experts predict that interest line of WooCommerce continues to increase in the coming year. While WooCommerce is conquering user’s heart, the interest in Magento and Prestashop slow down.



Interest Over Time


Experts and developers work continuously to make features more advanced and convenient for users. Releasing Magento 2 in November is one of the most anticipated events of 2015. LitExtension will draw a big picture about features and enhancements of three largest eCommerce platforms including Magento, WooCommerce, and Prestashop up to 2015.



WooCommerce is one of the best shopping cart plugins available for WordPress. Founded in 2011, WooCommerce is a young platform with high development potential.




WooCommerce is an open source plugin. It is easy to transform your WordPress website into a thorough-bred eCommerce store free. Users can find many free themes, extensions and install them quickly. Other extensions are required payment but they are cheaper than different platform extensions.



Business can categorize products and give sale prices and independent attributes. WooCommerce stores are able to provide physical, virtual, downloadable and even affiliate products. Moreover, this platform accept many types of payment with POS solution.



WooCommerce is a plugin of WordPress. If users have used WordPress before, they benefit from recognizing the user-friendly WordPress interface. It is available for beginners to save a lot of time to create and manage your site.


Customization Options

Users can download about 2000 different themes in https://wordpress.org/themes/. With each selected theme, users can availably change pre-set CSS styles and color themes, tweak the code and experiment special features.


Professional platform

It helps you to control detailed order tracking and customer engagement tools. From that, users can view open orders, update delivery statuses, apply discount code, set up taxes. This platform gives customers a picture of professional service.



WooCommerce provide some analytic tools, which allows to calculate daily sales, total sales, measure the statistics for different customers individually, follow the number of order, and determine change in trend. It is helpful for managers to measure the metrics of their site to improve sales.



WordPress community has millions of users and thousands of active members on hand to give advices for people who have problem in setting WooCommerce up.




WooCommerce is not an e-commerce website. It will not fulfill the eCommerce funnel. Developer has to add multiple extensions and customize their site before running it.



WooCommerce is a light platform, so it is not suitable for a big eCommerce store that has thousands of products.



Releasing from 2008, Magento is the most popular eCommerce platform with over 200.000 retailers worldwide and 2 versions: Magento Community and Magento Enterprise.



Open Source

Magento is free for download in the Internet, except Enterprise version. It includes most of the necessary features to have your store up and run it.



Magento’s admin area is second to none. It allows users to be enabled full features by the click of a button. It is easy to look at your website performance and real time information.  Magento allows third party integrations to import products from spreadsheets, manage newsletter system, start-to-finish manage an order of a customer.


Flexible CMS

It supports you manage multiple websites, integrate Google website optimizer and over 50 payment gateways. WYSIWYG editor is friendly to help non-tech individual refresh website easily. Magento is perfect choice for product editing and capable of handling large database smartly.


Strong Community

Magento is owned by eBay. Magento users receive an abundance of helps and advices from eBay advocates to manage effectively. There are over 800.000 developers worldwide with Magento experience.



There are about 15.000 Magento plugins and extensions.




Magento EE is not a free version. Users can start with Magento CE with no fee. However, you need to pay high cost for extensions and plugins. Sometimes, companies have to hire a third party to install extension for their site.



Setting up and customizing Magento is more complicated than other platforms. It offers high requirement in server and developers. Magento hosted on dedicated servers or cloud plan to keep store running stably. Developers need to have core technical knowledge and experiences in coding to install and control Magento properly.



Magento’s flexible architecture also makes it complicated. The more Magento is complex, the more time it need to set up and customize as in other solutions. It requires developer’s time to get up the learning curve and be experts.



Prestashop is a free open-source eCommerce solution. After appearing in 2007, it is gaining its popularity very quickly. This platform gives business flexibility and a low entry barrier to build an online store.




Prestashop is really easy to initial install and customize with basic features. Developers ought to download files and upload them to their host. It is suitable for PHP5 with MySQL5 (or later). If hosting company provides one-click installation, everything will be very simple for even non-tech individual.



User interface is relatively friendly. All needed information is available on Dashboard. WooCommerce keeps technical terminology minimum. Most of the emphasis are ease of use and clarity.



Prestashop supports some impressive features such as email follow-up automation, SEO, catalogue and site management, recently viewed products feature, promotional tools, international shipping. You can find more 25.000 plugins and extensions of Prestashop.



Prestashop allows developer to customize eCommerce store easily according to his opinions and customer’s need. You can add or delete different features through the admin panel.


Official marketplace

You can choose from 3500 modules and themes in the official marketplace: http://addons.prestashop.com/en/



Prestashop is available in 41 languages, but only supports fully in English and French.



Expensive modules

Most of full functional modules is not cheap. When upgrading and expanding Prestashop, you need high budget to purchase templates, themes and extensions.


Minimum scalability

Prestashop is suitable for small and medium scale business. It does not support multi-store feature.



When users of Prestashop have trouble in managing site, they can find help from Prestashop forum. However, Prestashop do not have an official support team.

#2902 Very bad experience with prestashop customer service for cloud version - avoi...

Posted by jelonek on 08 April 2015 - 07:35 PM

I was about to open an online shop and after a few weeks of looking for a software, i decided to go for prestashop cloud version. Everything seemed fine and nice and managing the shop seemed smooth and easy. So I went for it, worked hard on it for a few days, spent long hours each day.

Now when the shop started looking good, I can't log into the shop - front, back, dashboard, nothing. When I log into my account and press manage my store, I get blank white screen and nothing happens. I tried wired and two different mobile phones, different browsers. When I can't access my data from front or back, in desperation I called the number given on the website. I really had to try hard.

I was really astonished when the lady over the phone told me that if I need any help from them I need to use the paid tickets. The fault is not on my side, I can't access anything, can't do anything. It turned out that the technical support is paid, what if this problems occurs regally and I use the free tickets? I need to pay for more.

I thought that using cloud service would bring an easy managing of the store so that I could focus on the shop and sales and not technical matters. It turns out that prestashop has really thought through how to make

money over cloud service. So my advise is - avoid as hell keeping your data on prestashop servers. And use the old good ways of using your server and installing it there. You can't also count on technical support over phone, because even when you choose technical support option, you still get connected with a sales representative, who just states that they can't help with technical support, only with sales.
