Magento vs prestashop - which one is better?
To me, and through viewing many customer's sites, the two are alike in that they are both ecommerce, but they are not designed for the same type of business.
PrestaShop is good for small and medium sized businesses. It is fairly robust and there are a significant number of modules, both free and premium, to get it to do most tasks.
Magento seems to be a little easier for people to use right away without having to add as many modules or extensions. It is also built to handle larger businesses.
One thing to consider, however, is your hosting platform. While Magento may be the bigger of the two, it also uses much more resources than PrestaShop. In fact, with our customers,we do not recommend that anyone use the Magento program on anything less than a VPS or Dedicated server. This means no shared servers. PrestaShop on the other hand, seems to have an easier time being used on the shared servers.
