WooCommerce and Prestashop are two popular e-commerce platforms in 2016. Both platforms have lower barrier to entry about technology and finance, so they are suitable for most businesses. There is helpful comparison between WooCommerce and Prestashop by Litextension.

It's Game Time!
I am already familiar with WooCommerce, but Prestashop is something new to me. To tell you honestly, I was planning to setup my own eCommerce store with Wordpress and WooCommerce is my preferred option. But I would love to check out and explore Prestashop for now, so that I can finally make my own decision whether I'll go for the first or second one. Recently, I am so attracted with Fresh Store Builder, but it's not Wordpress-based but a standalone eCommerce store. Customers are loving it though, and now my mind was already dazzling with attraction. It's better that I should take my time though to find out, compare and decide for good. Thanks for showing to us the comparison between WooCommerce and Prestishop. :)

I am satisfied with Prestashop as it is almost free and most of the plugins are paid version, but buying them is good for making bet E-Commerce site.
I never tried Woo commerce, but here someone suggested to me that use instead of Prestashop as it was easy to configure.
The Prestashop Module cost more compared to the other CMS modules as this was made me bad impression with them.
