for PrestaShop Beginner’s

Posted: August 31, 2013 in PrestaShop

Some time ago i had been asked to do in a freelance job a PrestaShop Store. I had love that but at first it was difficult to understand. Some years had pass since then and PrestaShop stills being a big player when talking about accelerated E-Comerce stores.


There as been a while since i don’t do nothing with this platform but some months ago at my job i had the need to make the budget for rewriting a PrestaShop store, so hand’s on and i had to remember how it was to develop and all the features and tricks of the platform.

  1. Hi Alex,
    Nice post!
    Which one would you recommend the most? PrestaShop or WP+WooCommerce? 🙂

      Hi Bruno,

      That would depend the kind of chalenge. WooComerce is better if you want to develop a ecomerce that is part of a website and take great advantages of WordPress CMS features and simplicity.
      WooComerce is also more extensible if you have some special business features.

      But if you intend just to create a shop and time are a constraint PrestaShop definitly will be better to put your shop running faster.

      Hope this help you in your choices 😉

    Howdy! I know this is kinda off tppic however , I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My websiite covers a lot of the same subjects as
    yours and I think we coul greatly benefit from each other.
    If you are interested feel free to shoot me
    an e-mail. I loook forward too hearing from you!
