LogiCommerce vs Prestashop

back to blog

If you are thinking of creating an online store, you may find it difficult to choose the right platform that best suits your needs. There are several options available on the market, but in this article, we are going to analyze two: LogiCommerce and Prestashop. Both offer a wide variety of features and functionalities, but at the same time, they are totally different.

In this post, we will give you a comparison between these two eCommerce platforms so that you can make an informed decision about which is the best option for you.


PrestaShop is an open-source content management system for small and medium businesses, designed to build online stores from scratch. The fact that it is an open-source software means that you can install it for free on your computer, but you should keep in mind that you will have to pay for external hosting, SSL certificate, add-ons and additional maintenance. In addition, you will have to take care of software updates, which could be both a cost and an additional risk.

The most common advantage referred to when talking about PrestaShop is the wide variety of templates and themes that can be used to customize an online store. These themes include many useful features, such as the ability to adapt to all types of devices, modern designs and integrated SEO tools. Although, it is true that, if you want to have access to more advanced functionalities, modules and extensions, you will have to pay for them.

On the other hand, there are several reasons why someone might not want to use PrestaShop to create an eCommerce. The cost of web hosting can be too high for some small and medium-sized business owners. Also, unlike other CMSs, PrestaShop is not as robust and requires the installation of various additional extensions to add advanced features. This means that users will have to spend more time and money to get all the desired features. In addition, PrestaShop's learning curve can be quite steep for beginners. Although the installation process is fairly straightforward, there are a lot of features and options available that require some understanding before they can be used effectively. It may take many hours to understand the platform and adapt to its interface. And, of course, with an Open-Source platform, you will have to take care of the updates yourself and the risk they entail.

Key issues with Prestashop:

  • Hidden costs
  • High dependency on technicians
  • Stability problems
  • Complicated to manage at BackOffice level
  • Limitations in promotions (discounts)
  • Integration problems with ERP
  • Very long updates, they take all night long

LogiCommerce, a great alternative to Prestashop
