Prestashop Problems Right Now

  1. 80% users, only use 20% of features.
  2. This 20% of features are not awesome, some of them awful.
  3. Prestashop was conceived for end-user “self service”. Easy install and config process. That’s why they only use a 20% of features. Those users do not create lasting companies. Maybe in France, but not in the rest of the world.
  4. Professional & enterprise users don’t trust in Prestashop, many bugs, too unstable.
  5. Time ago, it was very easy to develop and customize a Prestashop site, now is converging with Magento complexity. They prefer to learn Magento or WooCommerce, more profitable.
  6. Usability & Conversion Optimisation in Prestashop is a shit. I use it in my classes as an example of what not to do.
  7. Responsive is horrible, the worst I’ve ever seen.
  8. Each new version has more bugs, more slow, and more features nobody uses.
  9. They don’t have a real focus. They are between Magento, Shopify and WooCommerce. All of them better than Prestashop in most areas.
  10. They don’t have a real “Pro” Product Manager and CTO.
