PrestaShop – open source e-commerce shopping cart


PrestaShop is an open source e-commerce shopping cart for website owners and wannabe web tycoons. The devs claim it’s all Ajaxified and lightweight (which means your buyers should have an easier and faster experience at the checkout on your site) but as with all these things it’s really a matter of trying it out first to see whether it fits your needs better than a hosted solution. One good sign is the busy forums which indicate a lot of users, enthusiasm which is essential for an open source project to flourish. Worth a bookmark if you’re thinking of opening up an online store sometime soon.


 On the Web, appearances matter. In many cases, you really can judge a Website by its cover! The PrestaShop e-Commerce Solution was built to take advantage of essential Web 2.0 innovations such as dynamic AJAX-powered features and next-generation ergonomy. PrestaShop guides users through your product catalog intelligently and effortlessly, turning intrigued visitors into paying customers.
