#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.

#6327 Best-loved Shopping Carts in 2015

Posted by alexnguyen on 15 January 2016 - 08:37 AM

Today the world had transformed into a more digital one compared to the previous decades. Online business has become more popular than ever before. But we all know that starting an online business can be both rewarding and challenging. Knowing where to start, how to run a sustainable business, and how to be successful are very important questions to every entrepreneur.


If now you decide to start an online business, the first thing you need to do is to choose a shopping cart for your website. However, in such a complicated market like ecommerce platform market, it seems to be difficult to give right decision between several available options. Therefore, this article will show you top three favorite shopping carts that are best-loved all over the world. They are Magento, Prestashop and WooCommerce.






If you need a completely customizable online store, Magento will fulfill your needs. Being a reputation open-source e-commerce software, Magento lets you tailor-make any aspect of your online store and make it work as exactly what you want.

Why do we say that Magento is the best choice for merchants? Because since it was first launched in 2007, it has quickly become one of the most popular carts online with its powerfulness and a rich feature set. Magento also offers plenty of customizations to give you the flexibility to maximize sales and optimize your operations; therefore, it seems to be available to all types of businesses.

Another advantage of Magento we want to mention here is it cost-effectiveness. With two different editions: Community Edition (CE) và Enterprise Edition (EE), Magento offers different types of solutions to fit your business. For small businesses, Magento Community, which is free version, is a great way to get started with. The company also offers Magento Enterprise, which gives you enterprise-level functionality and support to configure your website and back-end workflows.




Prestashop was launched in 2007 and quickly impress users by its decent efficiency, good functionality list and rather simple modification. Today more than 200,000 ecommerce stores run on PrestaShop technology. If Magento requires a little technical knowledge to use, PrestaShop seems to be more suitable to who are just starting their online store because administration panel is quite intuitive and easy to master. It’s especially important for those who are just starting their Internet adventure.

The significant feature of Prestashop is free of cost & open source. We believe that Prestashop is the best choice if you have a tight budget but still want to run on an efficient ecommerce platform.

There are a lot of functionalities built in PrestaShop. Many of them which are no match for Magento are sufficient for beginners and intermediate online shop owners. Prestashop provides extensive feature sets for managing product listing, payments, shipping, manufacturers and suppliers.




WooCommerce, which is a free WordPress plugin, is one of the fastest growing shopping carts. This plugin was created in 2011 and is now used by thousands of e-commerce websites worldwide. If you are thinking about creating your own online store, you definitely should give WooCommerce a chance because it does not take very long to install but works great.

Like Prestashop, WooCommerce is completely free to download. Despite being free, WooCommerce offers extensive features out of the box and especially it will not cost you a thing.  All you have to do is download this plugin, and you will have it in just a few minutes. However, it still looks professional. We are sure that customers will be impressed by how organized your online store is and how easy it is to pay for the products.

Moreover, the WooCommerce plugin allows you to build a WordPress-based online store quickly and easily. As a popular shopping-cart software, WooCommerce also gives you unlimited capabilities and endless customization options from a variety of themes and extensions throughout the Web.


In conclusion, we suggest Magento, Prestashop and WooCommerce for your website because these outstanding feature. We also know that it is not easy to choose the right shopping cart at the first time especially to the starter. But don’t worry because LitExtension will help you to correct the mistake with shopping cart migration tools.

#2482 Avoid PrestaShop Cloud as hell!

Posted by DEFTONES on 27 January 2015 - 12:04 PM


some time ago i bought module from official addons store that required modifications of the core, that is not a problem for me because im a little php savvy (thanks vekia for tutorials!)


several days ago i migrated to prestashop cloud, everything worked well untill i wanted to append changes.

there is no possibility to customize shop, even a little!


the only one way to customize shop are modules... and these modules arent free of course.. much expensive that in other markets...


for example:

- facebook shop module on addons costs 80€

- i found another addon that is worth 30€ in marketplace that is not trusted by addons store



nothing is free. and in cloud you can't have customized shop!!!!

#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.
